Just curious if anyone on here has checked out the Yakima Showdown kayak lift assist carrier. I currently have the Hullavator, but saw Yakima is coming out with their version. I’m a little intrigued, due to it’s lighter weight and the lack of the gas struts. I’ve read about the Hullavator gas struts eventually giving out, so long term, wondering if the Yakima Showdown would be a better option. I’m sure you’d have to put a little more work into it as opposed to the Hullavator, but not sure how much.
So anyone out there have any hands on experience with the Yakima Showdown? If not, any thoughts on it as opposed to the Hullavator (both pros and cons) just by reading about it or watching videos?
