I've used stainless steel and lead ones. I can't ever get the steel anchors to hold. They'll hold for a while but then will pull lose every time i've tried using 'em. Maybe they're not laying right? Dunno but any suggestions would be helpfull or else I have a bunch of steel anchors to get rid of :)

I assume that you are talking about boat anchors? Try using a heavier gauge chain at least 5FT in lenght. I myself use a aluminum anchor with a heavy chain. It works like a charm.

How much weight are you using on your anchor rod? Used to use an 8oz. storm or hurricane weight, it held bottom good. The weights are half pyrimid and round at the bottom.
