i tried several roll clinix to no avail, really it was the book The Bombproof roll that made me understand...and a lot of time in the pool.

head comes up last

I don't think it matters what kind of roll you use, but if your head doesn't come up last, you won't get it up. If you are sweep rolling your head has to be on the back deck when you get up or you'll go back down. AFter it get's bombproof then you can get a little sloppy.

I purchased a 18' above ground pool last year just for practicing my roll. Gotta watch that paddle blade though. Also ordered EJ's roll & braces today,see if Mr Jackson can help me. Thanks for the feedback guys.

i'd be willing to bet that your head is the root of your roll worries. regardless of what roll you are using, your head has to come out of the water last (i.e. tuck your ear to your shoulder).
