Re: [DSE] Dropped toggle - recovery procedure?

In reply to:
Since my accident, it's a practice to loop my palms through and pass the control line between my index and middle finger. Perhaps had I thought about it in advance of that jump, or been trained to deal with it, the outcome might have been different.
What are your suggestions?

Exactly that technique, especially low, especially at flare time. (No, I don't swoop.) Yes, it forces the brakes to always be in play, but I'm happy with the benefit gained in the tradeoff. When I see people use their fingertips to flare, with open palms, I cringe a bit.
