This is the one I use on my Stealth - works a treat and is the thinner material so easy to roll up and stow!

I am going to sell my Tagit sea anchor if anyone is interested. It's sold as a jetski anchor, but if you want something bigger then this would suit a kayak. I'm upgrading to a larger one as this one is too small for the ski. There is a pattern emerging here!

So you actually use the jet ski one or just the same anchor in the kayak size? I think the tagit one is top of my list so far

I have both the Tagit and the Rob Fort lightweight material drogues. (The Rob Fort one was purchased after a lapse in the brainium meant I left my drogue at home on a trip). My $0.02 - the lightweight Rob Fort is my preference, rolls up really nicely and seems to set and hold better. I also like the float on the end for picking it up out of the water. But both a good products and work damn well.
You're aware that while it affords one the momentary illusion of satisfaction, the spewing of bile is never a permanent solution.
