What a great buy! This little beast will last generations. It holds my threasher or tarpon in rock, mud, or sand, no matter the current. It is easy to wash and to store. It doesn't clang about, just sits quietly until needed. I could not ask for a better holding devise. Put a shackle on the back & secure the line at the rear. A small zip-tie goes in the front hole and will give way if hung up. Being able to pull this in reverse means she'll never get stuck. Get One !
be careful using this anchor in moving water with large rocks on the bottom. Mine got wedged between rocks, it was very hard and a little dangerous to retrieve it
Very good for mud or sand bottom. Extremely reliable, light weight and easy to use. I think it is much superior to the folding anchors. Using chain links, as noted elsewhere is a good idea but not needed in shallow and slow moving water. I use the ties used in closing bags of bread to hold the anchor line/chain to the upper end of the anchor and firmly secure the line/chain to the lower end of the anchor. This will let you pull the anchor free if it become stuck somehow.
I never thought I should need an anchor to the kayak. Thanks God, a friend of mine expert in the fishing kayak, recommended me to use this specific anchor for a kayak. I followed his instructions and I bought it and installed it in my kayak. It works perfectly. Then I knew that if I didn't use this anchor, I should be in the middle of the ocean. I recommend this product for your safety.
