 The Delta Anchor times 300

"Having the anchors together on the showroom floor provided the tentative answers. It is my opinion that there are two major reasons the old CQR is more difficult to set, requires a much heavier anchor to do the same job, and also will not work without a long heavy chain lead. The two reasons are the hinge and the massively heavy shank. The hinge allows the anchor to wander in a non-linear fashion and deflect the driving forces placed upon it by the pull on the rode. The massive shank prevents the anchor from burying. Neither of those conditions apply to the DELTA which has no hinge and has a blade-like shank, sharpened on the lower edge to aid in penetrating the bottom."
