Box Anchor

I was in a boat showroom yesterday and came across this anchor system which I though was brilliant in design. It seems very sturdy, looks like it would be effective on just about any type of surface and it folds up into a very easy to stow shape. I had just purchased a delta style anchor about 3 weeks ago. While the delta is very effective, it's shape makes stowage somewhat awkward.

I remember reading a review of this and they said it was almost impossible to get it to set - maybe they have improved it since then?

I remember the blitz when they started selling that anchor. Videos, pictures, testimonials, etc. Haven't heard a thing since.
