Lost respect for Thule after this product

Comments about Thule Slipstream 887XT:
So I purchased this to replace the Thule j hooks that I had and was sadly disappointed with the product but more so with Thule. My kayak is well with in the recommended width but because it's a fishing kayak, not a flat bottem, the boat doesn't sit right. I had one instance where the yak actually slid off the feet and was just sitting on the roof. I contacted Thule and the response was that this product isn't recommended for all kayak, even if it's ith in the width recommendations. I asked them what could be done to get me an appropriate product and their response was nothing because it wasn't purchased directly from them. Wishful thinking that a manufacturer stands behind its product.

I have used this to carry sea kayaks, canoes, sailing canoes, wave skis, SUP boards and even a small sailboat. I don't recommend doing the sailboat thingy. What I really like is that this system spreads out the support area between the two sets of cradles. This better supports the hull that is being transported if the vehicle factory rack has a closely spaced footprint like on my Honda.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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
