Not sure of another design that would work better, but when you put something on the end of a kayak like this it gets bent, scraped and damaged all to hell when you put it and take it down from the top of a SUV. I keep having to bend it back into shape...works fine, but I don't see this lasting very well and its very expensive for it not to last. Additionally, the kayak design is not very good to allow the middle screws/bolts to be installed for the side brackets holding the pedals. You have to have rubbery arms that bend 3 ways to install it. I give it 3 stars because once on the water it does pretty well what I wanted it to do, but I have concerns with the design and durability.

I installed the rudder to improve the drift control on my 13. It did exactly what I wanted. Now my boat tracks straight and I can concentrate on fishing. I fish rivers a lot and this rudder gives me the ability to steer as I drift along rather than correct tail spins and try to fish. It was very easy to install following the instruction provided in the kit. I highly recommend this addition to all Predator 13 Kayaks. The best price I found was ACK as usual. I always check with ACK before I purchase anything for kayaks.

Outstanding product and service from ACK. Having the rudder installed makes an incredible difference in the handling of the predator. No more spinning to one side or the other. Was no big deal to install if you follow the directions. The bag containing the hardware is to thin and busted open in transit and some of the hardware was gone. I was able to get what I needed from the local hardware store to finish the job.
