Rated 2 out of 5 by CrappieKing34 Not That Great
I didn't feel this anchor was worth the cost. It doesn't hold well in muddy or sandy areas, your best bet is to snag a tree on the bottom. I bought the 25#'er for my 18 ft bass boat. In one day of fishing it had slid on the bottom so much it wore the plastic coating off the tips of the fingers. Do not recommend this anchor, get the Digger for the same price.

I have used the Richter Anchor three times since I purchased it. Each time it held my 13 Smokercraft Alaskan very well. I only had a 3:1 scope, and it was enough. The rubber coating does a good job of protecting the interior of the boat during storage.

WOW! AN ANCHOR THAT WORKS. Of all the things in my boat that I rely on to do their job properly, this anchor is on the top of the list as being dependable. I added a length of chain to it as it recommends and this anchor has never failed me. I use two anchors and one of them is not a Richter and I always struggle with getting it to hold. I am about to purchase another Richter to replace it. With two of these anchors in my boat, anchoring can be elliminated from the aggrevation list. It is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ABWalleyeGuy Best All Around Anchor You'll Ever Buy
Spend the extra couple bucks and get this gem. It's heavy enough to penetrate weeds, the flukes catch bottom, rocks etc, and you just give it a quick tug up and the anchor pulls straight up every time.
I have bought a navy style, a digger style and this one. This one is far and away the best.
The largest one would do well holding in a river current.
