My main has a slight roach, but still gets hung up on the topping lift whenever tacking - pain to yank the TL free from the battens with each tack. If I don't, this is what it looks like:




We use a Selden rigid boom vang, but am considering replacing it with a boom kicker to eliminate the topping lift.
