I have the "Plus" version. It does load quickly though that efficiency
is lost through the extra time it takes to install the carrier (see
below). Would probably be best for surf sea or K1/K2 type of kayaks. OK
for sea kayak as long as it's not too heavy.
Likes: Once the EZ-Vee is installed, the kayak can be loaded and
secured quickly with the bungies; No bowlines; Seems to be well-made.
Dislikes: Not only expensive, the actual cost was higher than what was
advertised on the Kayakpro website; The minicell foam on the "vees" is
not strongly adhered; The rack does not install quickly (eight allen
head screws)and cannot really be left on the vehicle when not in use.
Rating is for product only. OK overall, but with some definite
trade-offs compared to other alternatives. Moreover, I would have to
the Kayakpro's website calling this the "ultimate kayak
Kayakpro.com still shows the incorrect price despite my complaint when
I purchased mine awhile back (I still had to pay the higher price).
