The Hobie Universal Anchor Trolley Kit has taken the guesswork out of which Hobie anchor trolley you need. The universal anchor trolley kit includes the same parts as the other kits, but with a long enough line to fit any Hobie kayak except inflatables. Adding an anchor trolley to your kayak lets you easily deploy your anchor, drift chute or stake out pole over the side of the cockpit area, then move the attachment position forward or aft to hold your boat in the position desired. Easily sit facing down stream / wind at anchor. Simple pulley system and cleat allows adjustment all along one side of your boat anywhere from bow to stern. The Universal Anchor Trolley will replace the Basic and Pro Angler anchor trolleys.
This was exactly as described and it fit my Pro Angler perfectly. It had extra screws for Hobie's that are not pre- rigged for an anchor trolley. Great kit. The service from ACK was superb as always.
Apparently "Universal" means not specifically for a 2014 PA 12. Rear pulley didn't line up with inserts and had to be drilled out. "3/4 inch" screw for the 2 guides is too long for the inserts. Smaller screws in the kit would have worked, but there was only one of those instead of 2 specified in the parts list. Loctite is specified in the instructions and listed in the parts list, but not in the kit. I made it all work, but disappointed it didn't have what it was supposed to, and what was needed.
Very easy to install. exact fit on a Hobie Pro Angler 14. Excellent quality.
Good product. It's much easier to install with somebody helping you (2011 pro angler). Simple directions. I would recommend to anyone who needs it for shallow water fishing with a stake out pole. It seems a little weak for using it with a anchor in deeper water.
