Tandem anchoring. Fortess + Rocna

What do you guys think of this tandem anchoring setup? Current conditions- 16’ deep semi- poor holding, sandy but patches of grass.
20’ bridle -> 90’ 5/16 HT -> 44lb Rocna -> 8’ 5/16 chain -> Fortress.
I have used this setup a lot when short scoping in tight anchorages or poor holding and done fairly well knocks on wood. Just curious what people think.
Edit to add: This is for out 36’ S2 11.0C sloop. Roughly 18,000 lbs displacement.
P.S. I’ve been around sailing a couple decades. Nothing more entertaining than an anchor discussion ?. It’s healthy debate though! I swear!
