Default Antenna / Choke Questions

Just ordered this 2m Slim Jim ( along with 75ft of LMR400 to mount on the roof.

The instructions ( show a choke that just looks like coax rolled up. Would anyone explain this to me? Also, how many coils should it be? Does that do the same thing a balun does?

Should I just get a kit like this: ( to prevent losing distance on my coax? I'm thinking the 1/2" LMR400 is pretty stiff, so coiling it up might be a pain in the ass...
