Roof rails or Thule Detachable bars ??

Looking to buy either the after market roof rails like those on powerfuluk etc. or get a set of the detachable thule type.
Both look to be about the same price, obvious the rails need drilling in the channel but is the difference night and day between the two?

Only looking for occasional use, and transporting the surfboard on hols. Last year I purchased one of those padded strap roof racks for £50, OMG the noise was horrendous. The strap vibrates on the roof and sounds like your driving through a hive of bees's. Needless to say the padded straps are going on the bay and hear lays my decision on what to get next.

The other item I might get,

Any advice or experience?

Adam, I bought a used set of Thule Aero bars and feet from ‘nigethecat’ on this forum, paid £130
I use them VERY occasionally to carry my MTB when towing the caravan, when not towing the white box I use a tow bar mounted bike rack.
You are welcome to borrow the bars at any time until you get sorted, they are very easy to fit Thumbs Up

I’ve been looking for some roof bars that don’t require rails for my RRS2 MY16, what is the model of the ones you have found? Are they for RRS1 or 2? MY16 RRS Autobiography Dynamic, Firenze red, black pan roof, satin black 507's with satin black stealth pack, ebony and ivory interior.

If you do a make/model search on roofbox.co.uk all the relevant Thule parts required, are listed.
