Bruce type anchors are one of the most popular anchors for marine application and are known for their high holding power and self setting capability. For boaters anchoring in a variety of bottom conditions, including sand, mud, rock, and coral, bruce anchor is the boat anchor we recommend most. It has slightly less holding per pound than similar style anchors such as the Delta/Wing but it generally sets more easily. Each bruce anchor includes a small trip line point at the back of the anchor. While not used by most boaters, it offers the option to attach a secondary line to release the anchor in case there is a danger of the anchor getting snagged. Includes a lifetime warranty against breakage.
