Cortland Jeyco is the originator of the world's most efficient drag embedment anchor - the Stingray.

Conventional wisdom states that the heavier an anchor and chain, the better the holding power will be. Jeyco reject this idea, maintaining that good design will out-perform dead weight. The Stingray represents the culmination of years of research and development by recognized experts in the field. The result is an anchor that delivers a performance to cost ratio that other anchors find extremely difficult to match.

In 1998 Jeyco conducted a comparative analysis of various anchor designs, and measured the holding efficiency of each (holding power / weight). The diagram represents the results of these trials.

As the chart demonstrates, Stingray anchors out-perform other designs by between 150 (for the clump weight) and 6 times (the DMS 55).

** Note: Testing on 25kg and 50kg Stringray anchors was stopped before ultimate holding capacity was reached.

 

 

 

Stingray anchors are made in a number of different styles based on the application: for example, the longline version has been designed to pack flat for assembly on site, reducing freight costs considerably. A Stingray anchor can be assembled in seconds, without any special tools being required. Other styles are designed to take account of different application specific requirements.
