The Greenfield Richter Anchor combines three proven technologies to create a truly unique high performance anchor. By offering the weight of a River Anchor, the penetration of a Grapnel Anchor and the easy retrieval of a Slip Ring Anchor, the revolutionary Richter digs in and holds under almost any conditions. Its patented release system allows for easy retrieval even when buried or tangled. Used by over 100 Tournament fishermen, the Richter design is suitable for use in all weather and bottom conditions. Its performance in rocks, mud, weeds, and sand is superior to traditional anchors and requires less anchor line. The Richter Anchor will set and hold, even using a 3-1 scope, allowing boaters and fishermen to stay closer to their set-points.

Instructions/How to setup
The Greenfield Richter Anchor should be set up with anchor chain and rope. Attach to boat a 3/8″ Braided Anchor Line with thimble or Anchor Buddy. Connect anchor ring and thimble with 5/16″ connector and nut. Anchor Chain (Greenfied #2115-W or 2116-W) is strongly recommended. Works great with the Greenfield Anchor Buddy as well! A 4:1 scope is recommended (meaning for every 1′ of depth, you will need 4′ of anchor chain/line).
Lowering: Connect line and hardware to anchor and boat. Lower anchor from stern or boaw of boat.
Holding: Set line at 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 scope (or a 30-40 degree angle) from boat. Use extra line in rough water or strong current.
Retrieving: Position the boat over anchor, or past vertical position, to allow the line to follow the release bar to release position. Anchor releases in upside down orientation.
