Comments about Thule Glide and Set 883:

I HATE the rear pads! They are almost TOO slick. They don't rock inward enough to lay properly most of the time (one is often more vertical than horizontal and take some finagling of the boat). The front saddles are nice quality.
This system doesn't cradle boats as well or universally as my old systems in the past. Once I have done some adjusting to fit whichever boat I'm taking, it is secure. But I'm glad I got this on sale. In fact, I just ordered a replacement rack from Yakima including the superior hully rollers, which they brought back! I'm selling this rack on craigslist.
