I've been pondering on buying a similar tool. It works like a football rattle doesn't it? You spin it around?

How do you find the drafting if you have to hold the yarn so much higher than your other hand which is spinning the tool?

Yah, you just move your wrist a bit and it spins. It's so easy a kid could do it. In fact, my almost 2 year old loved it so much I made her one out of a pencil and cardboard and she even got it to spin. Sometimes. A little.  Grin
You can draft two ways- Park and draft: put it down and use two hands or Long draft: get the right amount of twist into the yarn so that you can pull with one hand only. It's hard to describe and takes a bit to 'get'.

I was so happy to see your yarn on your paddle! I want top go back  to my myan spinner soon but I want to get better at an even yarn first so I can cram as much as possible on it! lol.
