I grew up with a coaster brake. When I switched to freecoaster I always wanted minimal slack. I think having a lot of slack in the freecoaster is a mistake most riders use because you are maximizing the non back pedal without the learning curve of minimal slack. I have used the pedal pressure while rolling backwards to slow my roll backs. It's a finesse. It's also a personal choice. Either way, Dan is awesome.
