I have been a hard determinist for 7 years now. The only free will I have ever witnessed is the perceived free will of people who cannot know the future. You would need to add up all of the previous variables to know the future, which is a pretty impossible act. So to me, free will is a label to describe the mystery of the future inside of the human consciousness. Do not forget that a large part of our consciousness is subconscious. Our subconscious could be making all of our decisions for us, and we would never be the wiser.
