I think we need more information here. Are you asking about G vs AoA onset rate? Or G onset rate vs AoA onset rate? Simply snatching back on the stick doesn't give you an instant AoA. It takes time to rotate the mass of the aircraft.

What im interested is how pilots establish G onset rate vs AoA onset rate.I know if you are at the corner speed you can get and mentaine 9Gs if gradually pull.But momentarily can get same 9Gs whit a lower speed if you're hard on stick.I guess first thing that is come in is AoA and then Gs it will rice due to inertia of the a/c.
