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.
Worked great for transporting our Wilderness Systems Pamlico 160T using the factory roof racks on our Toyata Rav4. Out of the water the 160T is a beast of a boat at 16' long and weighing approximately 90# fully outfitted with seats and rudder. Getting it on the roof of even a moderately high SUV like the Rav4 normally takes the efforts of two strong men and a boy, but Malone's innovative "Stinger Load Module" made loading the kayak much less difficult. The wing shaped bunkers and provided straps and bow & stern ropes held of the carrier held our "cruiser" snugly in place on our three hour road trip to a mountain lake. Sure you can buy less expensive racks but you will not get the quality and convenience that you get with the Malone SeaWing Carrier Combo. If like us you are hauling a plastic Queen Mary you will be glad you spent the extra dough.
I bought this product to carry my new old town predator XL minnkota kayak. This kayak is very heavy but i was able to put it on top of a Yukon sitting on 24 in wheels with no problem. It held the kayak in place very well. The only problem i experienced was i tightened one of the knobs on the plate to tight and the screw cut through the plastic in the sea wing so i can't remove it now. Would highly recommend this product if u have a predator xl
