"You don't realize how important your anchor really is until you use one that is completely made for performance... and that is the Tornado Anchor. Not only does it stop my boat on a dime, it is also a huge conversation piece at the boat ramp! I love my Tornado Anchor!"
"So an anchor is an anchor right? That's pretty much how I thought. There are lead pyramids, that's bad on so many levels, but they stop the boat. There's the standard steel/lead spiked river anchor. And of course, the trusty chain. Those have been the traditional anchors used on river watercraft for years. Quite frankly until recently I didn't see a need for another type of anchor. However my feelings changes when I got the new steel Tornado rotating disc anchor. This new design is superior to lead in its composition and far better than chain by default. It also holds and stops better that a regular spike anchor. With so many choices it's clearly the best by design, material and performance. While the other anchors drag to a stop, the Tornado Anchor's design digs in quicker and holds better. Pound for pound this anchor is the best in its class."

"The Tornado anchor is a legit improvement on the simple river anchor. While at first glance the innovativeTornado may seem complicated, the basic principal is actually quite simple. And, once you use one and realize it works better than a conventional pyramid or cylindrical drift boat anchor you'll want to watch the clever design in action over and over. And, unlike big chunks of lead and steel slag, you don't need tons of weight to compensate for gear laden boats in fast water. I've been rowing for a few decades in all types of water and this thing is totally worth the investment"
"This anchor is amazing. I've been guiding the local rivers for over ten years. I know where I can and can't stop with a lead pyramid anchor. The tornado anchor stops me in spots I've never been able to stop before."
"I've used pyramid anchors my entire career. Lead and Steel and they all react the same way. Drop the anchor, it rolls and slides down the river until it grabs. Faster the water, the harder it is to stop. Then the Tornado Anchor came along and my boat is stopping easier and in places that I struggled to gain purchase in before. You can feel the difference immediately. Very few times is there truly a break through in this industry. I would say that the Tornado Anchor is in this category."

"A Tornado Anchor is a better mousetrap.
It seems such a simple task to stop a boat, but it can be difficult and dangerous if done wrong.
Having a Tornado Anchor helps get the boat stopped safely without hanging up and most importantly it does not litter the river with lead."
