I have a 45lb CQR as my primary anchor, and that is all I've ever used on my boat, but anchoring in mud works out just fine with it. I have an all chain rode.

I also have a Bruce as a secondary, not sure the size, at least 35lbs, maybe more. Haven't needed it yet.

Down in the Caribbean, I had trouble with a CQR in sea grass, but took the dinghy out 45 degrees and dropped a Bruce in a sandy spot and it was the one that held us through the night.

I've heard great things about the Rocna, but mostly from Rocna dealers :-)

You should consider the type of bottom that you'll most often be anchoring in, and find out what setup is best for that environment.
