My old tech description stuff indicates that relaxing the back pressure reduces the gee command right away, but the rate is somewhat slower than when you "snatch" the stick. The roll command is basically "instant", and you can see this with the demos and T-bird solo jets. Relax the stick and that sucker goes to zero roll command and you can see the difference with the Blues' solo jets, as sometimes the wings will "wobble" ever so slightly.
Some of our guys would trim to zero gee and when unloading just release the stick. My unnerstaning is some of the 'birds also trim for slightly less than one gee.
Good equations from Spurts, as usual.

Degrees per second = ((√(G^2-1))*32.2*57.3)/V
If you ignore the need to sustain altitude then it becomes
With V being in feet per second.
