Does anyone recognize the maker of this anchor? It’s heavier than it looks ‘cause there’s lead poured into the bottom of the plow, 44.4 lbs. There are absolutely no markings so I’m assuming it’s some type of knockoff. I’d like to sell it but am not sure what to call it. Maybe a Delta knockoff? What do I offer it up for … $75? $100?

It came on the JN I bought last fall but I’m kinda fussy about my ground tackle so have replaced it with a Rocna and a Fortress.

Thx

Thanks much. Not familiar with Spade but as you say it did test ok, thanks for the test article too. Article gives the sell price of $450 so maybe I'll ask $125. Yellow paint doesn't even have a scratch, don't think it was used much. I feel better selling something I know at least a little bit about.
I've got a Danforth 35H to sell also, too heavy for my old back so it gets replaced with the Fortress.

Hi,
Southern ME. Love to sell an anchor. I’d come to Portsmouth if you’re south or Wiscasset if you’re north.

That is a Spade, I used a Spade for 12 years, great anchor in my opinion but pricey. The pic is not clear is the lead still in the cavity as it appears it may not be.

Spade.My anchore of choice, pricey.It digs in very well and stays dug in if boat does a 360 due to change in direction of current and/or wind (I use a danforth when I'm fishing)

Yup, all the lead is still in there. I weighed the anchor to determine what model . It weighed out to 44.4 lbs or 20kg.
