Comments about Thule Slipstream 887XT:
Bought the Thule 887XT Slopstream to go with the Thule X500 Pro. The bolts that come with the 887XT are not long enough to fit onto to Thule X500, so you have to BUY different bolts. My slipstream doesn't "slide" as advertised. It is very stiff and the customer service is "non-responsive. Not impressed
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

pros and cons
from bethany, ct
Two problems: if your under 6'0 tall, and have a 12'or longer kayak, you won't have the leverage to lift the stern up to the balance point. Also, the pads are not slick, so the kayak doesn't glide up easily.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am a 5'2" 113 pound woman with a 56 pound 16' kayak. I can load the kayak all by myself with the Slipstream! With this product it is all technic and not muscle-power! My kayak rides in wind much better than with my old saddle system, too.

If you are under 5'11 and own a Grand Cherokee, you won't be able to use this with just one person. It does slide off the back of the car, which is a good thing, but a 5/6" person with a 12 foot kayak doesn't have the leverage to lift the stern up and over the top. Other than that, it's a great rack.
Premium load-assist carrier supports 50% of the kayaks weight with it’s sliding roller that extends beyond the back of the vehicle for easier loading and unloading and improved vehicle protection.
