Really? On multipitch I generally pick a partner who I think can do the pitches relatively efficiently so I use the device in normal mode.

I use the device in autoblock predominantly when I expect my partner to fall, so on harder stuff, single pitch to avoid the epics.

Using autoblock on a fat single with an efficient partner is just asking for elbow strain.
