I've heard pros and cons to anchor points. I guess the con is it can limit your hand movement somewhat?

I originally learned finger picking and never had to use an anchor point for that but using a pick is a different story for me.
I changed from planting to floating twenty years ago and don't remember it being too difficult finding the strings, it just became natural. I also move my right hand around a lot, change attack angles, etc.

I also play different styles, so a perfect float is not the way I always play. I don't pay a lot of attention to my right hand, just let it do its thing for the piece I'm playing, but planting the pinky is pretty rare for me these days.
