I have a yakima rack with the yakima J-cradle. My paddling buddy has the thule rack and Thule J-cradle. We mounted one of his J-cradles on my yakima and it worked great! I found that I like the Thule cradles better because when not in use, you can fold them down flat and leave them on your rack. The yakima ones I have don't have that option so I am always unscrewing them from my rack when not in use and its kind of a pain. Especially now knowing that the thule cradles can just stay on and fold down with the push of a button. Get the Thule for an easier system.
