Malone Telos

I’ve enjoyed reading this forum for quite some time. This is my first post.

I use the Yakima EVO rack extension to get my WS Tsunami on my car. At 51lbs, I have no trouble getting the kayak on my shoulder to carry, but hoisting it into my J-Cradles is another story. The EVO makes the task possible and somewhat manageable, but still not easy (especially after a long paddle).

Can anyone recommend the Malone Telos? It looks like a great solution but I’d appreciate hearing from anyone with experience with it.
