New Rocna

The details of the new non roll bar Rocna are out.

Rocna Debuts Non Roll-bar Anchor Design at 2014 Boat Shows | ActionHub

A cross between an Ultra and a Spade? Hopefully the best features of both. I like the tapered leading edge of the shank. It also looks like a tapered ballast chamber.

I'd have to see that in person. From here in CA it looks banged up.

Looks like it should really scoop up some bottom to bring home.........

Remember the 60's era Plymouth dashes? Some of the things on it looked like afterthoughts. They just stuck it on there. Like that extra banged up scoop on the Rocna.

It probably does the job and fits under the close fit bow rollers, just looks goofy.

How do you carry it from the truck now that they took the handle off?

It's more like a Spade than anything else IMO.

Has a shank that looks much like the failed Oceane made by Spade. The ballast under the fluke tip is almost a duplicate of the Spade.

Could a Spade engineer possibly have abandoned ship and gone over to the Rocna dock?

Now that'd be a story!

Don`t take that Eric. Order one now.
Actually, it looks like a healhustler "design".

Always thought hoops were gadgets and a waste of metal, or is this an accommodation to a more boat-friendly shape, compromising on the hoop-anchor's supposed effectivness?

Exactly my thoughts. "

Exactly my thought as well.
Eric the article says there is no ballast in the tip.

"The new anchor design features a unique combination of shank and fluke geometry, which in conjunction with a roll-palm™ at the rear of the fluke, self-rights the anchor on the seabed without the use of either a roll-bar or a large mass of inefficient tip ballast. This development enables a larger fluke surface area than other designs, which rely on dedicated tip weight, directly equating to more holding power and security on a weight-for-weight basis."

So much for those comments from Rocna owners saying without the roll bar they'd just skip along the bottom on their backs or is there something I am missing?

It's a totally different design.
