Can't believe I hesitated
I had been hesitant about this anchor because of the price tag. But let me tell you, this is the absolute finest anchor I have ever used! I can anchor anywhere I want in any conditions and not worry one bit about moving. Then when I want to relocate, a simple tug drops the blades and the anchor comes up easy as pie. I will admit I had my doubts about the blade release activating accidentally, but with countless times being anchored, I have yet to see it activate inadvertently. Truly the best purchase I have made in boating accessories!

WOW!! What an anchor.
Used it for the first time last weekend, and could not believe how how this thing held. I have a fishing hole on a main lake point that requires you to anchor where the South wind blows pretty hard usually. In the past, I would set a river anchor and it would move on me, causing me to move to close to my jigging hole for crappie. When I set the digger, and let out about a 2:1 scope, it held without moving an inch. When I was ready to leave, it released and came up clean as a whistle. Price is high, but worth every penny.

We bought a 18 ft pontoon at the end of 2012 ; beginning of boating season 2013 we bought the Digger Anchor; we take our boat to Stockton Lake as we live 15 miles from their ; Great fishing and camping ; any way we used the digger anchor 20 + times; and it only work 2 or 3 times; maybe the lake bottom is pure sand ;and the digger has nothing to hook to; every time I bring it up it does has sand on it; the 2 or 3 times it did work it was great ; but because it does not work like it 's suppose to have to always be on the look out to see if the our boat has drifted to close to shore or rocks or even other boats; we went boating/fishing sept 27, 2014 it was windy and water was very choppy ; we went to a cove to get away from the wind; their was other boats there also I dropped the digger in about 15 ft of water ; after about 20 min notices we have drifter towards the rocks so had to pull up anchor and move away into deeper water. this happened 6 times the 3 hrs we were their ;I am sure the digger would work better in rocks or clay bottom lakes ;

Best Anchor Ever!
This anchor will hold you in high winds and waves. There is no problem with throwing it out in rock, sand, mud, trees because it will keep your boat in one place.
Very easy to retrieve. Requires about 200ft of rope for all situations.
I have used many types of anchors and this one out performs them all. Well worth the extra money.
