The quality is very good and the functionality is excellent. My Tetra 12 Angler turns on a dime with this kit. The only problem I had was with the poor installation instructions supplied with the kit. With the help of you tube and some logic I was able to install, but it was not easy.

I ordered a OK Trident 13 from ACK with their rudder system. I had them install it prior to shipping (great move). It arrived installed on the kayak. However, due to shipping issues, they don't attach the rudder leaders. SOOOOOOOOO, you have to kind of wing it. A call to ACK turned me on to a Youtube video of the installation process. But, it would have been nice if they included a simple diagram explaining it. I watched the video and figured it out. Not a big deal, but for $250.00 for the rudder I think a diagram should be included. The rudder itself is very sturdy and the ACK installation was perfect. If you are considering buying a kayak, order the rudder at the same time. Without it, it would be like buying a new car without power steering. Well worth the money and makes your paddling time more enjoyable.
