Re: eskimo roll

I have a CH16 and it rolls pretty well. I have fitted it with CLC style foam knee braces which make a big difference to the knee contact with the boat.
The roll tends to happen slower with the CH16 (and I assume the CH17)than with my Greenland SOF but it still rolls pretty well.
I actually find the CH16 easier to roll with a Greenland paddle than a normal Euro paddle. I think the slower action with the Greenland matches the pace that the boat rolls at.
