The Story

Superior bite, reduced drag, and a completely lead-free manufacturing process, the smart, eco-friendly design of the Tornado Anchor is a serious upgrade for your fishing watercraft. Independently rotating plates around a center axis allow for increased contact with river cobble and gravel for better stopping power, when and where you want it. Galvanized steel with an eco-friendly powder coating for added durability. Heavy-duty eye bolt is built to last, lift weighted for 2,200 lbs. of force, and made from thick steel, requiring a locking connector or carabiner with a minimum ½-inch opening to allow the eye bolt to freely pass through. Easily clips to your anchor rope system.

Hose clean. Made in the USA.

Choose from a 25-lb., 34-lb., or 45-lb. anchor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Brakes for the Raft My NRS Otter just got new brakes. Just like the sticker says my anchor is better than yours! Lead Free! After learning that your 30lb lead anchor doesn’t weigh 30lbs after using it for 5 plus years struck a cord with me. Lead in the rivers is a bad thing. Everyone should be making the effort to clean up the places we love to play/visit/fish/float/escape to. The anchor kicks butt with the design they came up with. Love seeing an old object get modernized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Anchor I've Ever Ysed I have just about every type of anchor used for drift boats. The Tornado Anchor is the best, by far. I have four of these anchors, of different weights, that I use on my two boats and at different river flows. These anchors stop my boats on a dime. They are also environmentally safe being not made of lead, just remember to rinse off the plates to get rid of any invasive species hitchhikers. They also will stop your boat quickly so you're not dragging it through redds or scoring the river bottom. Buy one, or more. You won't be disappointed.
