How to Mark a Braided Rode?

I just replaced the nylon part of my anchor rode with braided line. I have always used the flag markers commercially available to mark off lengths of 3-strand line, but I don't see how they would work with braided. Does anyone have experience marking braided line so you can keep track of how much rode is out?

I have 50' of 5/16th chain and 300' of new 5/8th braided line to use with the primary anchor on my J/40, a 25 kg Rocna.

Thanks --

Put whippings on the line with colored thread.
You can see them easily as well as feel them in the dark.
