Tripping line:
My first idea when I saw the JSD was to install a tripping line inside the cones and only attach it firm at the end - near at the chain . This way the cones would collapse and pile on top of each other. so they would not provide the usual resistance.
But the arrangement would need stronger rings or something at the cone point.
I am also not sure of it would not tangle during use anyway, so I gave up the idea until I actually see how it all looks and make some tests.
