Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I've had this for a few years. My wife and I use it to put two 9.5 foot Swifty kayaks on our Subaru Crosstrek. It's gotten them from Virginia to Cape Cod and back twice, as well as a few other trips with multiple hours at sustained highway speeds. And some pretty crummy wind/rain. Once you get the hang of it, it's not hard to get your boats secure, but the first few times were frustrating. The rack, its mounting hardware, straps and ropes are holding up nicely. The little foam blocks are pretty much done after 2 years of use, but that's not a big surprise to me. I used those little felt sticky pads that you put on furniture feet to prevent the bolts from scratching the roof of my car when the racks are tightened down, and so far no damage of any kind to the roof. Overall, pretty happy with this system. It does the job well for a price I was willing to pay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to get the hang of IT takes a lot of practice getting a method down that works to getting the kayaks on, especially if you have a larger suv. I have a 2014 Armada, and had to get shorter bolts, because the bolts were to long and pushed on the roof of my suv. If you can afford a j rack, it would probably be easier. But I tightened the straps well and nothing moved around going 65 mph for an hour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Have to get used to it Have had it two weeks and you have to get used to the order on which the boats are placed and lashed down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use We purchased the Malone 50 inch bare roof racks and the Stax Pro2. They work well on our Hyundai and Acura. The directions are easy to follow for assembly and for the loading procedure. We took our boats on a camping weekend and they stayed solid at "interstate speeds" (wink) and twisty-turny back roads. Malone warns of possible seepage by the roof rack straps and sure enough they did. Oh, by the way, it was a torrential downpour that lasted almost an hour! Nice system with ease to use on two vehicles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works The kayaks may slip to the sides from the bottom if you strap them straight up and down, because the straps around the crossbars slide out when you hit any bumps while driving. We strap them slanted with the cushions near where the crossbars meet the side rails and haven't had a problem since. Once you get the hang of it, putting them on and taking off is not hard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy Rack - But I Still Have My Doubts Now that I've used the rack several times, I wanted to give my feedback. I have to say, I was really skeptical that this rack would be sturdy or durable. It just doesn't have a strong feel to it. But it was the only one available when I bought my kayaks, so I tried it. I live about 20 minutes through highway and winding roads, and was really pleasantly surprised that it held up so well.The first few times it was really hard to use. The foam blocks kept shifting, and I had a hard time getting the kayak's loaded and secure. But now that we've got a system in place, it's a little easier. The blocks don't shift, but I have a terrible time with the hooks that the straps are supposed to loop through. I can't believe nobody's commented on this. It's really hard to catch on them.Our regular trip takes us about 30 miles from home. I trust the rack in good weather. One day, with 20 MPH winds, we had to pull over and tighten the straps, but, otherwise, it holds them well.We had a comment this week from a someone passing by as we were reloading at the lake that it seemed like a real hassle. I kind of agree. It takes about 15-20 minutes sometimes for me to load them to the roof. Most of the time is spent playing with the straps.All-in-all, if you are on a budget, and need to carry two kayaks, this is a good choice. Your cargo will be secure, but you will have a bit of fussing to get things loaded right.It's also a good choice if, like me, you have a tough time lifting the kayaks to the roof. I also tried a J carrier I purchased online and returned it because I couldn't get the kayak up that far.But if your budget affords something nicer, I would suggest going with something simpler to use.
