" 2 prong coyote drag " covers quite a bit of territory. There are some very good designs and a lot of mediocre / poor designs.

A good rule of thumb would be the lighter the drag the longer the chain.

My own drags have 10' of chain. That length minimizes drag bounce and allows me to pre-hook the drag in a lot of instances

I have 10 ft on all of mine also. Seems to work well in our habitat.
