Fiber Drop Coils

We're using ArcGIS 10.2.1 to roughly map a Fiber Optic system. We're not using a full blown geometric network yet nor a 3rd party software - but we'll get there, possibly later this year. I have fiber to the home shown with aerial or u/g drop lines and risers if it goes u/g. However, I have some customers that are not complete yet - the fiber drop has not yet been buried and it is coiled on the pole waiting for customer approval. I would like to show this coil in my map. I have several options that I could come up with: 1) draw an aerial drop line going nowhere with a type = coil, 2) create a Coil point feature class symbol and put it next to the pole point, 3) put an assembly unit in the related table to the pole for "coil". I don't prefer #3 because it's not really graphical and my client can't see it easily. 


I can't find any examples of this sort of thing. Does anyone have any opinions on the best way to show this?


Thanks in Advance,
