The flukes of the high tensile have flukes with a T cross section and the standard have flukes with an L cross section.
Danforth also made an anchor called a Deep Set that was pretty amazing. It was made from some high tech steel alloys and was very thin. The shank was in fact spring steel and could bend quite a bit and spring back. They had a problem manufacturing the shanks for the larger size. Most of them were curved. The smaller ones were fine and I still have one.
that is it the deep set is what I had and was thinking of not the HT.
