Does the lighter weight of an aluminum SPADE mean that it will not penetrate as well as a steel version of the same size?

This is true; the model in steel will dig in slightly more readily than the equivalent aluminium version. However, due to its superior design (which gives 50% of the weight on the tip), an aluminium SPADE will have better penetration qualities than most other types of steel anchor of equivalent size (which, because of the materials, will be twice the weight of the aluminium SPADE). And we remind you that once set; the aluminium SPADE will have the same holding power as the steel SPADE. Both will be far superior to other types of anchor of equivalent size.
