Thank you both for your answers. Satisfied my curiosity...Cool

I am starting to suspect just about no-one, even here in Germany, actually uses the technique recommended by the DAV (german alpine club)

I know I don't, because feeding slack with an HMS or belay device at chest height or higher is an absolute PITA. And feeding a lot fast (more of a sport climbing issue) is pretty much impossible.
