Jib furler is hard to furl since putting up new sail...ideas?

A smaller line effectively reduces the diameter of the furling drum especially when the sail is all the way unfurled. Using a line large enough to fill the drum when the sail is completely furled would making furling easier. Alternately, use a much longer small line, and fill the drum completely that way. Since the effective drum diameter is larger the effort will be much less.
