You got it all wrong. First a dynamic rope spreads the peak load out farther. Second, to give a dynamic belay you just have to time your jump so that you are moving upwards at point the rope catches. you are in the air for 1-2 seconds which is pretty easy to time with the fall once you get used to it. Just wait until you just feel the rope tension and jump. It works. Period.

You've totally missed the point. Try jumping off the ground and staying in the air for 1-2 seconds as you claim. A belayer is PULLED into the air.
Do you really think you can time your little jump accurately to 85 milli seconds ?
You don't get it. You don't have to be accurate to within milliseconds. The catch just has to occur while you are still moving up during your jump. You also aren't just guessing. You jump when you start to feel the tension.
