Definitely one of the issues with gear like a series drogue, finding the room to stow what can be a bulky item that one might so rarely - if ever - wind up using...

I made mine using 3/8" and 5/16" sections of Amsteel, makes for a very lightweight and compact bundle... Rather pricey, however :-)
Jon, can you get a pic of that some time? I'm going to be getting a JSD and would like to see a better option than the traditional line. I love the idea of something that has similar strength but is much more compact.
