The first 6 words of my post acknowledged that Yakima had a similar setup. Perhaps you saw something different, but the equivalent Yakima kit at Rack Attack was $390, maybe cheaper elsewhere or on sale.
That said, Rack Attack is overpriced on just about everything, they have a store 20 minutes from my house. No idea how they stay in business with their pricing (in store or online) - and it's not their customer service, which was terrible the one time I spent $700 there on a roof box.
Yakima setup is similar, and no offense to those that use Yakima stuff, but in my experience it's inferior stuff. Component/material quality isn't as good as Thule, and the AeroBlade load bars are much beefier, and I suspect quieter, than round Yakima bars (or the rectangular or oval Thule bars for that matter). Not to mention better looking, IMHO. Worth another $60 (or $100) to me.
