Anchor is too lightI have only used this anchor a couple of times now. Once was is a shallow fresh water late that had little structure on the bottom. The light winds easily blew my kayak around with the anchor deployed. The second was on a slow moving creek that had a sandy bottom. Again, the anchor did not hold me still. I imaging that a rocky bottom would allow the anchor to grab onto something given its design. I would like to see this come in a 3lb model or be able to change the anchor at the end or the line.

Works WellIt's small and compact. I use mine every time I take my kayak out. I have a 14' kayak, and it holds me in place without any problems. I fish in larger open waters as well as streams/rivers, and I have no problems.
I don't use the rigging it came with. It's too hard to manage the anchor in choppy water when it's hanging in the front or back of the kayak. I just keep end of the rope tied to my seat hardware and toss the anchor overboard.

Needs ImprovementThe anchor rope is an awkward type of rope that gets kinked up when there is any twist in it. For instance, if you wanted to coil the rope around your arm, it will get all kinked up when you drop the anchor. It's very annoying, and I ended up replacing it with more manageable rope.
