TIE DOWN ENGINEERING Hi-Tensile Anchors

For excellent holding power on sand and mud bottoms

Extremely tough, durable anchor built from high tensile steel for excellent holding power in sand and mud bottoms. The shank is drop-forged for added strength and rests on special reinforcing yokes inside angled crown plates to assure a 32° shank angle. T-shaped flukes are constructed of Junior I-beam steel for greater strength and stability and beveled for faster, deeper penetration of bottom substrate. Hot-dip galvanized for long-lasting corrosion resistance.

  • Style: High-Strength Pivoting Steel Fluke
  • Material: Galvanized Steel
  • Application: Sand or Sand/Mud Bottoms
  • Pros: Original Danforth dimensions. Excellent holding power per pound. Precise shank/fluke angle. Excellent in sand or sand/mud bottoms.
  • Cons: Relatively expensive, due to materials and construction techniques. Limited or no holding in grassy, rocky or clay bottoms.
  • Warranty: One Year Limited

Comments about Hi Tensile Anchors:

The shank on 13H is way too thin. I bent the shank the first day I used the anchor. Tie-down claims LIFE TIME warrenty. Void if you bend the shank. I guess it covers worm damage.

      Comments about Hi Tensile Anchors:

      This superior light wieght anchor is well worth the money. Most of my fishing is in 30 feet of water or less. I pull anchor up to 15 times a day while fishing and wanted a light anchor less chain that holds in any wind, which it does. My boat wieghs in at 2800 lbs. When fishing a pass in terriffic currents, I add a 6 foot chain, to set it quickly. I recently lost my secondary anchor and purchased another high tensil to partner with the one I've had for over 20 years.
