The Mako Aero Saddles are great! They now come with felt pads some earlier reviews mentioned were lacking. I used them on my sit-in kayak which seemed to fit the hull shape very nicely. The strap actually goes around the whole kayak, and pushed a rubber insert against the hull of the kayak. When tight, the rubber grips the kayak very well and prevents any movement. I feel comfortable and have taken my kayak across the state at interstate speeds without any bow or stern straps. These saddles are great!
However I will caution you that they do not fit every kayak well. have a Hobie Pursuit kayak as well, and the hull shape is not smooth and continuous. The saddles do not grip that different hull shape well. (I used the Yakima Bowdowns for that kayak, also worked well.)
