Many people see a resemblance when looking at our old anchor design and the Mantus M1 design, indeed our first and initial design that we have started with looks in some ways like the Mantus M1 design, this was on the beginning of our anchors days, since then and after we made countless models and improvements our anchor changed dramatically. Our final design, the one we are selling since 2019 looks and acts totally different.
For those of you who still mix up between the anchors we have gathered below the main differences, we are only showing the technical differences of the two anchors, the one we started with in winter 2018 when Mantus was its vision and our last and final design that is on the market today.
For the last two rows, we just couldn't resist.
