Wouldn't buy it again
About Me Intermediate
Comments about Thule Glide and Set:
Had this professionally installed and immediately after almost lost our kayak 4 times. The forward holders did not hold the kayak in place. What should of been a 45 minute drive took 1.5 hours all because the kayak kept coming out of the holder. Thule may have tested this but certainly didn't test it here and as I can see from other comments we are not alone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Advanced
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.
