Yes the box works great, but as others have said it is heavy. I have a fortress also and use it most of the time because it is easier to deal with.

The Fortress is junk where I live...I gave mine away. The Box anchor was the single best accessory I ever bought for my boat. It NEVER slipped & took hold the first time every time. Yes it is heavy, but I'm the one who raises it so it's a small price to pay for ease of use. I'd probably try the small one if I had it to do over again.

i love my box anchor, was amazed at how easy it sets, always had trouble getting a good hold with other anchor's and dreaded getting one out. know its one throw and you are done. i will never be with out it. it easy to stow as well and i don't have to deal with the darn chain. love it

We bought the box anchor last year and love it! We did buy the large and would have been ok with the small (we have a 32' Stinger), but it holds in anything and that's what we liked about it. Don't think you'll be disappointed at all and it comes in a storage bag which is also a plus.

I bought one last year during the group buy. Worked so well one time that it is still on the bottom of the lake, . I need to get another if anyone is going to join in for a group buy.

Holds the 35 Sonic like a champ. Folds up nice and easy for storage under the rear bench. The fortress was always a pain in the azz to set up/tear down and stow away.

If you have a front anchor locker (the sonic doesn't) then a fortress would be better since there's no tear down.
