18-12_Ultra vs. Rocna Anchor - what is the best anchor (sailing ZERO)

Ahoy, in this episode we talk about anchors. We tested the ULTRA Anchor in comparison to the ROCNA Anchor. With both anchors we did exactly the same maneuvers to compare their performance. First we anchored like we do all the time, backing up to set the anchor, but then we drove ZERO to the other side, pretending the wind or the currents are changing. That means we broke it free and reset it immediately. A situation which happens all the time and a good anchor should reset quickly. Both anchors performed very well but in our experience the ULTRA outperformed the ROCNA with faster setting and resetting and more holding power by digging way deeper into the sand than the ROCNA did. And on top of that the quality of the used materials and overall appearance is outstanding and the anchor looks like it is produced without making any compromises. Well Done!! So the winner is the ULTRA ANCHOR!!! Check out the video if you ever wanted to see how an anchor behaves when you are trusting your boat - your home - to it..

The Bruce anchor would do well in those conditions, , i found a CQR in soft silt would slide along the surface on its side but Scottish Waters you would also do well to have a Fisherman's anchor we have broad kelp and most of these I find except the fishermen will slide along the top of the kelp beds and not dig in very well thank you for your report

Rocnas do pull up a huge chunk of mud in mud. If you dont clean it off before re anchoring it wont set right.
They foul easy on plastic too.
But i like mine a lot.
I am open to this as the roll bar of rocna also fits not nice in my bow sprit.

That Ultra sure digs well into loose sand. Would be interesting to see how it fares in mud. SV Panope has some videos of a Rocna in mud setting well but when driving over the anchor it failed to reset because it became clogged with mud. Emily & Clarke did a good anchor video recently where Clarke mentions crevice corrosion in stainless anchors, and his friend's unnamed stainless anchor that failed. The quality of the stainless used in the Ultra would be my only concern: https://youtu.be/s38sH_gueew

I agree, maybe we have the chance to film it in mud somewhere.. but I anchored in la paz for over 4 weeks and they say it's kinda muddy ground there. The tides were strong and the so calked la Paz waltz took place twice a day. Anchors slip all the time but the ultra locked ZERO in position without any movement. I felt very secure.
The material used is 316L stainless steel so corrosion should be no problem at all..
