Nomad easiest roller?

Would most people agree that the Nomad is the easiest rolling creeker out there? Is there any planing or semi planing hulled rr/creeker that might seriously compare?

I'd agree- I think all the modern creekers feel like they pretty much roll themselves with anything resembling good technique, and frequently find their way right side up even with poor technique.

Agreed. With good technique you can roll anything, including a SUP board...

I'd have to agree that the nomad is the easiest creeker to roll that I have tried. Good technic you might be able to roll just about anything, even a log. However, a log rolls like a log and so do some of those 90 plus gallon creekers.

Bliss-Stick Mystic rolls easier than anything I've been in since an RPM.
Made me feel spoiled, sloppy, and lazy when I was in my new-to-me 2006 Burn M yesterday -- embarrassing!
I really like the Mystic in general but haven't tried much else in true creekers aside from the super steady but doggish-handling Nomad -- which I didn't even try rolling since I didn't need to and it was damn cold!

I have paddled most every kayak and I'm surprised that the Jackson brand hasn't been mentioned.

The Super Hero, Villain, and Karma are among the easiest boats I have ever rolled.

But I don't know if I have ever found one single boat that is obviously easier than the rest.

I think the Jefe is the easiest to roll.

Good technique = easy roll. I've been teaching rolls for awhile now, creekers are definitely easier to roll, but I have personally never noticed any major difference in ease between them, and that's with a lot of people using them. I'd worry more about secondary stability.
