i have tried now the new anchor more than 20 times in different situations and in waters where i have been also with the old anchor ( CQR).
the anchor has held always already at the first time, it was never necessary to try several times.
and this on all grounds and with all winds up to 6 bft.
with one exception: i had problems on very dense seagrass fields. the anchor came up with a huge amount of gras. but this happened only twice on places, where there was absolutely no chance with the CQR.
all together, I'm very satisfied with the ultra-anchor and i feel much more comfortable and safe.
thanks and best regards.
