i had a 2 second instruction at chockstone, then it was up to me. we had both never used them before so i couldnt lean on my partner to show me a better way. perhaps if i didnt have to pull my arm behind my back and feed the rope (as was instructed) and i could cup the rope and keep pressure on it that way when the climber is being let down, it would be ok... up is easy, no problems there, its just losing control when he is being let down which is the hard bit.
