I have tried the foldable Kayak claw and Danforth anchors. I fish offshore structure (brushpiles)most of the time.Over time I got tired of fighting the anchor after the wind pushes the anchor into a snag. Most of the time I was able to recover the anchor after breaking tie wrap and reversing the anchor. Breaking a tie wrap on your anchor from a kayak in chop is not an easy chore. Earlier this year I switched to an 8 pound mushroom anchor. It is heavier and takes up more room but it has yet to get hung up. For my type of fishing the mushroom is worth the extra weight and bulkiness.
