I installed this rudder over the course of 2-3 short evenings. Nothing is very technical about it but care must be taken that the holes are drilled in the correct place. I double and triple checked every time and never drilled a hole wrong. Some parts needed modifying, the guides for the raise/lower cords didn't fit my kayak right so I did some trimming and all is well. As you may read elsewhere on the web, some have said this rudder will hum going through the water, it does. At certain speeds it lets out a quiet yet obvious hum. I haven't tried to solve that one yet as it is such an exact speed. My particular kayak, the perception sport conduit 13, really tracked poorly, if I stopped paddling it would veer sideways and coasting was impossible. The rudder fixed that so I'm happy.

Item shipped promptly and arrived when It was scheduled to. Installation was not bad, but it does require some mechanical know-how. Product, of course, works great! This is, after all, made by Harmony which is part of the Confluence family. My kayak is now a much better behaved vessel in wind and current. First day out my whole paddle back was into 20+mph wind, and this rudder kit literally saved me at least 15 minutes and a LOT of energy. I still prefer to paddle without rudder in calm water or with the wind at my back. I also found it very useful while fishing, I could control (to an extent) which direction my boat was drifting.

If you want to make your boat track better and handle rough conditions better, I recommend this rudder kit (if it will fit your kayak). Definitely a good deal, thanks to both Amazon and Backcountry!

Bought this for my rudder ready kayak. I actually bought the wrong kit but the only thing I was missing was a bracket that cost $5. Ordered it too. Putting the rudder on was a bit of a hassle just because of the amount of space you can actually reach inside any sit on top kayak. Watching the youtube video proved more helpful than the instructions. I definitely recommend this to anyone with a sit on top kayak that likes to fish off of it.

Great rudder. Read directions. Follow directions. Drill carefully. Use common sense. Very responsive. Really stabilizes the boat.
