I just learned handrails a few weeks ago so I know exactly what you mean. My biggest tip is look where you want to go. When your comin up to the rail look at where your approaching then as you can start seeing down the rail look to the bottom and you will follow. It will feel really weird or scary not looking at where your jumping on to but when I do it I find its almost no problem at all making it. Good luck on it dude hope you get them on lock soon.
