Therapy

I've been suffering from a common disease known as brake-jack (05 coiler). not really a problem until I start to hit the gnarly runs, since it puts my balance off slightly before the important bits like the drop off at the end. question then is:

1. any opinions on a brake therapy conversion or other floating brake system? I've seen them installed on stabs and the 07 coiler and stinky lines. How well do they really work?

2. whether i do get a floating brake system or not, what braking/other techniques can i adopt to circumvent the problem?

thanks guys n gals

They work ok. Brake before the turns.
