I would like to see a video of the anchors hitting bottom and being set. It also increases the chances of a fouled anchor.
Actually I agree, and more to the point, it looks like a thinly disguised way for Wemar to produce what looks like an almost exact copy of the Rocna, (i.e. roll bar with concave fluke), but get around patent by adding in a female version in tandem with convex instead of concave fluke. However, setting it well, and being sure both are set well, would be tricky, and altogether too much trouble for the most common usage situation.
