I learned the backroll hand drag kiteloop transition this summer - I assume thats the move you mean? Here's what I do/ did.
Theres a fair bit of kahoonas involved in chucking the kiteloop, but once you've done it a few times you get used to it, and theres not too much yank in it.
I like to do them comfortably powered, riding with no depower, so the kite turns quick, and I'm not fearing for my life too much - and it works the same on all my kites, 11,9&7.
So, kiting along, I bear away a little, so on a reach (this takes a bit more wang out of the kiteloop and is more important than it sounds) - then start slowly raising the kite (we'll pretend i'm on a starboard tack, so travelling right hand forward) - when the kite gets to about 1 o clock and is providing enough lift to stop me dropping in the water, i pop off and start the back roll, whilst digging my front hand into the water as hard as I can. I stop looking at the kite at this point and try to look round the rotation and start to spot a landing (and theres nothing scarier than watching your kite go into a loop, so it avoids that too!). Keep slowly rotating round and when the kite gets to or or is going past 12, pull in your back hand as hard as you can, and keep it pulled in hard. The kiteloop will lift you up and pull you round the rest of the backroll, and you end up landing going dead downwind (it feels like your landing toeside) towards the kite - , which is now on its way back up. You can now decide which way to ride off - I find it easier to do it as a transition because then theres no need to rush your front hand back onto the bar - you can just keep pulling on your back hand to send the kite back the other way.
Thats my tuppence anyway - others might think its a load of cobblers, but it works for me.
