Rated 5 out of 5 by pinetree boat anchor
this anchor is a very good product. I use it on a small bass tracker pond boat. It is light but very functional.

This small anchor works well with yayak use, stores in small places and easy to deploy. As in all anchors it does not always hold in really swift waters, especially if the bottom is real hard or rocky, but most of the time it works really well.

Bass Pro Shops Grapnel Anchor Kit is a very handy item to have in your boat for a very reasonable price. It is compact, but does a good job. I have a bigger anchor that wil hold my boat, but the boat would turn around from the wind and current. I use the grapnel anchor on the opposite end of the boat to hold the boat and keep it from going around in circles.

The anchor kit is really a great bargain, Bass Pro had the lowest price of all the websites I priced and it was delivered in just 4 business days. Easy to deploy and retrieve, holds fast in most conditions. Only issue I had was the line was too short. I was in a lake that was much deeper than 25' and have had to purchase a longer line...I use this with my Fish Cat 4 float tube...excellent combination!

No. It is not galvanized. It has a durable red powder coat or paint covering the anchor. I snapped off one of the anchor points about a year ago and the exposed metal is showing a little rust. I have used this anchor for years and this is the only part of the anchor that is exposed. hope this helps.

It depends on the substrate the anchor is dragging on. I have a a 14'4" Malibu Xfactor kayak that is around the same size as a canoe and I have not had a problem yet, but I have not anchored in sand or a smooth bottom yet. It holds fine in grassy and muddy areas when its windy.
I bought one for my 19' bowrider as a back anchor when we stop at the beach. Well digged in the sand-rocks bottom it can hold but if there's plenty of waves, forget it. I used it for my paddle boat and it works just fine. Even when it's windy. Very compact and easy to carry.
Yes, it folds perfectly and has a lock at the top to keep it locked until ready to deploy

Yes, the anchor folds and can be locked open or close via a metal ring. You do not have to use the storage bag, but it keeps everything nice and tidy. The storage bag is also padded, so it may protect your craft from being dinged by the anchor.
If I were to use this anchor to anchor me in a stream to a rock, what is the maximum amount of pull-weight that this anchor can sustain before the steel breaks? (assuming the rope is replaced from the factory nylon see in the image)
This is a very heavy duty anchor. At least several hundred pounds.

I believe this is cast metal, so It may not be as strong as you might have thought. I recently snagged my anchor on a submersed tree and snapped off one of the anchor points. I gave it a few hard tugs and it snapped at the hinge point. This was a good thing as I may have lost the whole anchor. The anchor point hinge is attatched to the opposite side, so that side fell off too. The anchor still holds my kayak fine in current with only two anchor points left.
