Some are heavier , clunkier ,noiserer ,
I started out in Very heavy Chromie oldies , Learned lots and modded quite my share out of personal necessity in the past .... I definitely like light simplistic designs less is more aspect..

Still I know a few nice Great people who are accustomed and like their old heavy anchors ...
Some people have their preferences

My Chromie Barges of yesteryear .In the past The only way I can push my Barges was with the help of a TugBoat because my shoulders are shot lol BTW I also had Foghorns on my old Barges

For me lightweight and practicality is my choice .

Preference is a choice At least I think so
Wait I forgot
