Works very well. Had a kayak with a partial rudder system in place. This made the completion perfect. I like the spring loaded rudder system because it will lift without any damage if you hit something. When lifted the rudder is vertical not flipped all the way over back to the kayak. I actually like this since it leaves the back more open for putting gear.

The Smart track is definitely an improvement over my old system. The foot rests are more comfortable. The lever system for rudder adjustment allows for tiny toe movements and the blade itself responds quicker and more quietly in the water. Finally, the spring system keeps the blade in the water even if the paddler runs over something like kelp. Pulling the rudder up or dropping it are easy and faster. Great system. My only concern is that the plastic rudder might be more fragile than my old aluminum rudder.

Q: Could this fit the stern of a Perception Striker 11.5 ?
A: I do not think you are going to get a good fit with this housing. The bracket that would need to be installed would most likely not fit flat against a flush surface.

Q: I am having to fabricate a custom mount for the blade housing on my Tandem Cobra SOT kayak... I see in the video that the "Long" pin option is 92mm in length. I assume that is total length... My question is what's the length pin, exposed under the plate it is mounted on, to the top of the last of the three split ring attachment holes?
A: Hi, Thank you for the the question. This is going to depend on the length of the sleeve that receives the pin on the rudder housing. Usually about 1-1.5" is exposed at the bottom of the sleeve on the kayak where the pin will be exposed.
