From a company whose historic personnel have a habit of being incredibly duplicitous (and that's putting it nicely) on public forums, I would expect to see an over-transparent approach from "someone" who has been appointed to pour oil over troubled waters. Instead while Rocna One is saying positive things, they're all very nicely veiled and then the only evidence of their role in that company is, in their profile:
"UK administrative contact for CMP and Rocna NZ"
An administrative contact can cover anything from the receptionist, to the company administrator, to a third party contracted to write some letters on their behalf...I'm sure that a customer base who, based on the evidence of sailing forums worldwide, feel they have been misled about the quality of a company's product.. would appreciate knowing who the latest mouthpiece for that company is, what level of experience and knowledge they have in that product and the company and then, and only then, start applying scissors to the slack!

No one is doubting the strength in a pull in line with the shank, what was in doubt is a pull 90º from the direction of the shank, think veering, 90 degree wind shift, change of tide etc.
Pulling along the designed axis is only testing the shank in tension. Think carbon fibre rod here, extremely strong in tension, but try to bend it and it shatters.Yachting photographer http://grahamsnook.com/news

For me it was a toss up between the Spade, Manson and Rocna.
All the tests I saw showed the Spade was a top performer all the time, we were going on a three month cruise around Scotland so we were going to be using our anchor more than most Solent sailors. It never let us down.
Another reason for choosing the Spade was that a roll bar would have fouled our pulpit.Yachting photographer http://grahamsnook.com/news

Same Old Boring AnchorYanker Talk
What a load of ballocks this thread has turned out to be: same old shi t, just simmering under the surface by the same old players; it's boring and I thought it would be a refreshing change. If they offered Rocna anchors for free I would not take one. So many other anchor choices.Having time is unavoidable.

A Rocna discussion always degenerates into a sanctimonious slagging match and as such, as a consumer, I would not be interested in their products.Having time is unavoidable.

Peoples desire to remain anonymous is easily understood. Typical reasons are well known. Often to protect the speaker....
Rocna One is the spokesman for CMP/Rocna and their desire to remain protected behind a mask degrades the accessed quality of the information they present.
So, the fact that they desire not to be held accountable for the statements they make leads me to think that the information they will present is not something they can stand tall and proudly speak. And thus is directly related to the Rocna discussion.
Food for thought.....
