The Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier installed in less than 5 minutes, holds heavy kayaks with no issues. The stinger load module is plain brilliant! ACK store folks are one of my favorites places to "kayak shop" :)
The product is good but it does NOT extend back far enough to be real useful on my 2009 Honda Fit Sport. The stinger part is not long enough to land on the deflector on the Fit Sport so the kayak sits on that instead. This kind of defeats the purpose of having it protect my car.
Very pleased with this carrier. I is very well built, easy to install (though instructions did not explain some of the parts supplied; however, email to Malone verified what I thought: extra bolts are for different height carrier bars and washers are used with bolts/wingnuts). Load module allows one- person loading of kayak.
Very good product. Lets you load a kayak by yourself from the back of your car. I have used it twice now and and had no problems other than the following. Replace the rubber tape on the V-slide at the back with Teflon pieces with the edges rounded or champfert. I had some sand on the bottom of the kayak and the tape came off.
