Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
I am very happy with the roller but with Texas weather the roller material softens and turns to putty just like the other review. I am wondering if you guys will sell the replacement soft material to mount it back the existing system. I am a big Yakima fan and this is one of the only product that does that.
I'm reinstalling mine onto the new subaru. All the parts moved easily from one car to the other. And!!! I still have the keys. I keep the kayak carrier on the car all year - as a North Idaho resident, I'm very impressed. Love it!
Consider this a mixed, but positive review. I've owned two roller/saddle systems for years, and overall they work very well. The only complaint I have is about the material the rollers and the inserts on the Mako saddles are made from, at least the vintage I have. While the current version may be made from a different material ("Dynaflex"?), mine have softened to a putty-like consistency, resulting in material from the roller and the Mako saddles being sloughed off onto the hull of my kayaks as they soften over time. I can no longer use the rollers due to the wear from this material, and I want to stay committed to a Yakima system, so I hope the new material addresses this flaw.
The load assist feature of the Hully Rollers work well as long as the vehicle is not leaning to the right or left. The first time I tried to use it, the right side of my car was lower on the right. My 16.5' sea kayak started creeping to the right completely away from the left roller. I unloaded the layak and repositioned the vehicle so that the slant was lower in front but even side-to-side. This worked fine. I paired them with a Mako Aeros and the boat stayed solidly in place with no give or denting on the underside for 600 windly miles. I am very satified.
