Over the years my back has aged even quicker than I have. My range of motion is not great and my roll sucks these days. It limits what I am comfortable paddling. So I am in search of a new boat that will roll better. I hope this will get me out on the river more. I am sure there are easier boats to roll than my semi-old Pyranha I:3. Should I just focus on a displacement hull, or is there more to it? Looking more for a river runner than a playboat. Intermediate level surfing. I have been reading up on the Braat, Remix, Zen, etc. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I will second Yoga, heartily, to help range of motion.
I have been out of the game for a couple years. Went to try and see if I could still roll with a friend just yesterday. He has a Braaap. It was a super easy roller, even with my head coming up, and seemed like a nice boat. My river runner is a Remix and it’s a good roller as well. He did make the comment that he thought a displacement hull was easier due to the lack of edges.
Best of luck.
