I've been using the Mako/Hully Roller combo for at least ten years. Never had any scoffing problems on my glass or composite boats. There are two modifications I have employed:
The rubber buckle covers on the tie down straps don't last very long. I replace them with tennis balls recovered from the Chicago River and Sewage Canal.
The Hully Rollers put a serious and worrisome dent in my glass boats when I tighten the straps. To prevent this, before cinching the HR end I place one of those foam hull protector thingies between the hull and the rollers. When cinched really tight the boat seems safe from damage.
Good product. I'd buy them again if I didn't already have three sets. Beats the heck out of loading a long yak by yourself on those J Frame things.
