    With a roof rack system like the Thule AeroBlades, are kayak carriers really necessary? They seem awfully expensive for what they are. Can anyone comment on comparing using the mounts vs strapping them to the crossbars alone?

    I would be driving locally, as well as on highways for long-distance trips if that makes a difference.
