I'm thinking about updating my anchor for my kayak. Right now I use a mushroom style anchor, but I'm thinking about changing to either a folding style anchor or just using a 6' length of PVC and using it like a PowerPole. Any thoughts?

I have no anchor, use a 5' section of PVC DIY stakeout pole and it works great for my fishing needs, once in a while I wish I had an anchor in one or 2 locations I fish where the water is either 5 feet or deeper. The stakeout pole is not good on hard bottom or packed sand.

In the past I had a 1.5# folding anchor, and a 6' stick pin. I never found I needed anything else, but I don't anchor in deep, high current areas. I also had a cleat set up, so I can release the anchor line quickly, and it will have a float on the end, so I can go back and retrieve if necessary.
