I purchased these along with a Malone trailer a few ago, I am returning them due to the fact that the kayak makes contact with the soft plastic on the rear brackets before the kayak touches the soft pads. This incidental contact leaves a black streak on my Eddyline (white bottom) that is extremely hard to remove. Problem is avoided if two people just set the kayak in place. I am not impressed. The trailer is great!

I was looking for an easier solution for our Hobie Oasis. This is a an absolute beast that I wanted to mount on top of our '07 Forester with Yakima cross bars. These look very similar to the Thule Glide and Set. I called Malone to get a recommendation for the Hobie, and this is what was suggested above any other Malone carrier. I generally like Malone products, but I was laughing as I was trying to precisely adjust the carriers while lowering the yak from my hoist. Too many pivot points make so unstable. I'd love to see this set up on a square bar, or anything BUT round for that matter. Phillip, another review pointed out the same thing, the mounts simply won't grab on tight enough no matter how tight you make it. So the carrier just collapses, every which way, every time. My old cheap Yakima Land Sharks cradle this nearly 90lb kayak without any fuss. Thank you ACK for your easy return.

For my new Ocean Kayak Trident 11, this is not a good fit. I tried to install it on my Yakima roof rack on the cap of my F350. I cannot get it tightened up enough to keep from rolling over when attempting to slide the kayak into it. It does not fit the contour of the kayak. I believe the foam pads would do a much better job at a fraction of the cost.

I have a Ocean Kayak Malibu II XL that I carry on a 4 Runner. The kayak fits extremely well on the cradle of the carrier. Easy to load and unload by one person. Very secure when tied down fore and aft for very long trips. Easily fits the stock suv rack on the 4 runner.

I bought this set to ride on top of a Nissan Rogue and to carry an Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 XL. This kayak is a SOT and is very wide. This setup is perfect for it. I can load and unload by myself but I wouldn't suggest that for the timid. The felt feet in the back make it very easy to slide the kayak on and off. When I am making shorter trips I don't use the bow and stern lines because the side straps snug it down really right. Just for piece of mind I use them for road trips or highway. I installed this carrier in about 15 minutes. I definitely suggest it.

The Malone Saddle Pro was easy to install and it works very well with my Ocean Kayak sit-on-top Kayak. It is much easy to load my kayak on top of my Ford Explorer now that I have these saddles.
