I think in many ways, anchors are like women. We tend to pick (hopefully) the one that works best with us!
We had and cruised a GB32 for some years and only use an oversized Danforth anchor and it worked just fine in everything we encountered including mud, sand, rocks, weeds and grass. Never broke loose and never had a real problem getting it set. We used a combination of chain and rope.
On Dreamer, our primary anchor was a heavier CQR and our secondary anchor we used in the rocks was a heavy Bruce. We cruised the PNW up into SE Alaska and down the West Coast into Mexico and anchored in just about every anchorage in all kinds of bottom and conditions. The CQR, on all chain, performed flawlessly as did the Bruce, on chain and rope, when we needed it.
The main point with any anchor, of course, is to properly set the anchor and deploy the proper scope. We found that doing that avoided the many anchoring problems, except that is, other boaters breaking loose and getting tangled up with us.
