drogues

I have found some interesting posts on the relative merits of the Jordan Series Drogue in this forum, but am curious about any feedback others might have about the more traditional drogue designs like the Fiorentino Para-Ring Drogue and the Galerider Web Drogue.
I bought a para-tech sea anchor a few years ago prior to a NY to Bermuda trip, but happily never used it. I have had several instances where I was interested in slowing the boat down and keeping the stern pointed into the waves.
Any feedback on the drogues other than the Jordan Series Drogue would be appreciated.
Regards,
John
