The parra anchor is just that an anchor, it is a last resort when all else fails.
I have only used it once and was greatfull for the rest it gave us there seened to be little if any shock loading as the rode was 1" white polypropoline ( I think that was what it was ) the whole thing fitted in to a easy to store bag. No where near the size of the JSD bulk, and I feel that would be the only down side of the JSD. There is a number of drogues on the market that take up less room, just my opinion.
