The anchor works just as advertised......I bought one size bigger and it held my 16ft. in place in a 15 mph wind. Came out when pulling it up without a problem. I'm very happy with this product.

I have a 16.5 foot ranger bass boat. Some times like the outher day I STUMBULED ONTO A STRETCH OF NICE BEDDING BLUEGILLS. iT WAS WINDY OUT AND i WANTED TO STAY ON THAT SPOT SO I TRIED OUT MY NEW ANCHOR. iT WORKED PERFECTELY WITH A LOT LESS ROPE. tHE REASON i BOUGHT IT WAS TO SAVE SPACE IN MY BOAT AND ELIMINATE EXCESS WEIGHT. iF YOU CANNOT AFFORD A HIGH PRICED PRO POLE REMOTE ANCHORINMG SYSTEM i HIGHELY RECOMEND THIS LIGHT WEIGHT ANCHOR.

I wish that I would have read some reviews before purchasing 2 of these anchors. I have a Pro Guide V16 and could not hold the boat with 2 of the 6 pounders. Just 1 of these is supposed to hold a 30 foot boat, who are you kidding. The only thing that these anchors were good for was to snag about 50 pounds of weeds and drag them along with you. With these 2 anchors out with about 75 feet of rope out in 14 feet of water, I was drifting at about 1/2 mph according to my gps. This purchase was a real waste of money.

After having lost a dozen or so anchors over the past twenty years of fishing I finally came to my senses and purchased an anchor that is 100% retrievable in a wide variety of bottom conditions. I have an 18ft. Crestliner Pike boat. This anchor holds it well with less rope out than traditional anchors. And best of all, it is light enough that my anchor winch doesn't grunt and groan when retrieving it. Its a good investment for the money.
