I have now had some more time and experience using my Sarca Excel anchor.
A comparison when setting my 66 lb bruce in the same spot I anchor'd in last night...
When setting the Bruce I would put the boat in reverse and could kinda feel the bruce setting, but the boat had the capability to drag the anchor at idle.
Same exact spot using the Sarca Excel, but admittidly 80 lbs so thake that into consideration, the boat stopped and did not move at idle power in reverse.
Having been a Bruce fan for a very long time, with several boats and anchors I have to say that I am impressed with the Sarca anchor.
