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.

Rudder arrived missing a few nuts and bolts which surprised me given the price of the product. Using the instructions I figured out what they were and purchased from the local hardware store. Easy to install but is tricky getting a few nuts mounted and pulling the wire casing through. I paddle in open water with strong tidal currents so having the rudder is very important. If you purchase a kayak for fishing in tidal areas or open water make sure to get the rudder.

A: thank you for your question, yer, they will have to be place in the middle of the track to get the full rang of motion
