I have one too, and rarely use it for the same reason - between it's weight and the hose constantly trying to retract, it feels as if it's trying to drag the tool out of your hand. The only way it's remotely functional is if I have the holder that Rockler sells clamped to the edge of the bench and use that to help support the weight. It's a shame too, as the different adapters are useful - but then they don't seem to fit on any other hose that I have. I switched over to the hose set that Peachtree sells https://www.ptreeusa.com/dust_hose.html - the 10' set, p/n 382, is perfect for use with hand-held tools due to it's light weight. It may not hold up as well, long term, as the Rockler hose but woodshop use is not that rugged. And the rubber adapters seem to fit most tools -- the larger one is a perfect fit on the Makita track saw and the smaller fits the outlet on the P-C ROS (I did away with the little canister, and the hose/vacuum provides virtually dust free operation).
