Hard vs Soft - chine hyperbrace.

By hyperbrace I mean capsize stiff - torsoed to either side in high brace position............when your ear hits the water, head dink, flick and come up. I can do it just fine in all the soft chined boats I've ever paddled....but in hard chiners, it seems that at least some degree of layback works much better than a sideways head dink. Is this just me ????......or a real phenomena ?????
