“The Extreme anchors performed well at the new site, reaffirming the design’s efficiency in terms of performance” “It set easily both times and earned an Excellent set rating” “These anchors offer surprising holding power in a light package” – “performed superbly in softer mud” “these anchors are obviously very effective in soft bottoms” “steady at both scope settings and receiving two Excellent ratings for setting”
Practical Sailor and Powerboat magazines pronounce XYZ boat anchor the winner of their April 2006 anchor test: “light weight and superior performance in the soft mud bottom earned the XYZ anchor a top pick”.
For us to select an impeccable performance and highest standard Practical Sailor quoted: “The only anchor that performed at that level was XYZ. We awarded it a top pick based on its performance”. This boat anchor will not break out, even when overpowered. Competitors were Delta, Bruce, Spade, Bulwagga, CQR and all other best boat anchors in the world.
“Excellent” and “set hard and buried immediately” describes XYZ boat anchor.
In tests conducted by the American Bureau of Shipping in a sand bottom with a five to one scope. The pull was stopped at 3,000 pounds for fear of breaking the shackle. They continued with test, with a larger shackle and 3-strand, twisted 5/8″ nylon rope. Although the rope had an 11,000 lb breaking strength, it broke! The boat anchor was retrieved undamaged.
In soft mud the XYZ boat anchor set and held at 400 pounds in the ABS test. This is equivalent to the holding of the Delta anchor, which is 3x heavier than the XYZ boat anchor. XYZ relies on its artificial intelligence and fluid dynamic design to wedge itself deeper and stay upright. Shackle, cable wire and chain not included.
