Bruce vs. Claw
I've always wondered what makes a Bruce anchor special. Why is it so much more expensive than a generic claw anchor..
Recently I purchased a 33lb sea choice brand claw for $80 shipped off the Internet... Then I was down at the marine consignment shop and they had a 33lb Bruce for $100... So I couldn't help myself. Here they are side by side. Both 33lb claw types... The Bruce definitely has a better finish. The search choice claw is more like painted and I doubt will hold up very well. The shank on the Bruce is 26 inches the sea choice 24 1/14. The flukes on the Bruce are 17 inches the sea choice 151/4.
A marginal difference probably but for those wondering like I always did now you know.
