The 1:1 outhaul go through a clutch to a winch.
If easing under load is a problem just take some turns on the winch drum before opening the clutch. Adjust and close the clutch.
Yes, exactly. That is how I would usually adjust the outhaul.

So I'm guessing that the purchase is there to be able to make adjustments without having to resort to a winch? I haven't tried the 1:1 under a heavy load yet but in moderate conditions, no problem getting desired tension or easing with the winch.
