Kayak Roof Racks...?

I'll be seeing Andy at OEX Sunset tomorrow morning to check his stock on kayak roof rack saddles and loaders for the Hobie Outback on my Chevy Tahoe...

Any suggestions on your favorites...???

I'll only be transporting the single yak as I use my trailers for multiple boats...

Thanks...

I have the Thule set up below for my Outback. The back part allows for easy loading. I tried the Yakima rollers, but the rollers never rolled for me and it was a pain to use. I also lay the front set flat and don't make it into a curve like the way it's pictured. Or you can bring Jorge along on your trips and he can help you load.

Cheap Home Depot option

I just went to Home Depot and bought a 4' length of conduit that I bolted to my crossbars so it sits above the door frame. Now I can just lift the stern up while resting the bow on the ground and prop the stern on the conduit and then grab the bow and slide it up and pivot it onto the racks. I think all in the total cost was $10 and I think its less effort to load than most of the commercial solutions Ive seen. I'm happy with it and so is my wallet.
