Hybrid Rode first section Dyneema, aft section half inch double braid polyester. JordanSeriesDrogue.com lots info.... none on Hybrid Rode or Dyneema rode as site was developed and written by my late friend Don Jordan.

    Shipping one tomorrow for a Nordic 44...very similar to Jeannes..even same bridle legs for a sailor out of Charleston. In fact Jeanne got his Drogue and we've redone his. he has been slowed by Matthew de hurricane. Pretty sure yacht designed by r. Perry.

    Pic of bridle shows blue Dyneema line. Appears to have spent many months exposed to sun. Jeanne now has chafe gear acting as sun cover on most of bridle legs out in sun. put sacrificial sail tape around thimbles to protect line around thimbles.

    "Is this the same kind of drogue El Jefe had? His failed too." No. I mailed you lots of info on the Jordan Series Drogue months ago. I realize you may not have read it.

Cones are now 6.5 oz Dacron sail cloth with 5/8" hem wide end and 3/4" mil spec nylon webbing. Should be very durable. Made by us in USA, sail makers. Jeannes new drogue: 128 cones on 289 foot rode. Our Hybrid version, shipped to her in one day from her call, 149 feet finished length 7/16ths 12 strand Dyneema, tensile 24000 lbs attached to 140 feet half inch double braid polyester. Bridle legs: 2 x 7/16ths 12 strand Dyneema, 24000 tensile with oversize 5/8ths Suncor extra heavy closed ssteel thimbles. Jeanne to attach approx 15 lbs tail end. 43 lbs in 5 lb ship box.
