I don't think a high drawdown is an indication of a failing system or reckless trading. For example, a system that can make 200% in a year but has a drawdown of 70% is still a very useful system. You can find some very 'famous' hedge fund managers, who will remain nameless, with over 50% drawdowns. Account drawdown to me is only a component of risk management.
You win some, you lose some.
