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.

The rudder works really well and is a quality product. For the product itself I would put it at 4-5 stars. The reason I lowered it - the install instructions. Terrible pictures, very small. Tried blowing them up online, but that didn't work. Mainly the last few steps where they are showing the knot ties is where it gets difficult. The rest of the installation is not too bad. You don't need the illustrations much. But again once you get past that the rudder itself is really nice.

Just bought an Ocean Prowler 13 and decided to get the rudder that Ocean Kayak recommends. DO NOT DO this unless yo are very handy and have a plethora of tools. This rudder inexplicably only nominally goes with this kayak. Weird since both are made by the same manufacturer... There are important parts that there is no way given on how to install OR you have to gerry rig to make work. It involves mental and physical gymnastics. Like threading curled plastic tubing 6-7 feet having a tiny hole as access mid way. Adding insult to injury the "instruction manual"(lol) is a few un-numbered pages stapled together. Grainy and dark with small pictures. The best part being that every other page is printed upside down on the back of the previous page. There IS an instructional video on YouTube. Unfortunately its made for the Ocean Kayak kayak that the rudder is made for 100%. Also since the holes dont line up on the foot peddle rudder control track yo have to eye-ball drilling a new hole. At that point if you dont have a Dremel tool you will be screwed.) However BOTH the boat and rudder are very good quality. They just dont go together. IF you could install this, save your $ and buy a MUCH Cheaper brand. It CANT be harder to install. Probably easier because you wont asssume it WILL fit !

Great, fast service, fair price. Haven't installed this yet, but looks like it should work, even on my kayak not designed for rudder. Order servicing is unbelievable and accurate, arriving in only a couple days.

Q: I have the O.K. Big Game Prowler Angler II. The description lists the BG Prowler Angler. Will this kit fit my Angler II?
A: If your boat is 2013 or newer this kit would work. If you have a model from years 2009-2012 you would need the Ocean Kayak Prowler Big Game Rudder kit which we also sell. http://www.austinkayak.com/products/591/Ocean-Kayak-Prowler-Big-Game-Rudder-Kit.html

Q: I'm looking for a rudder kit to install on my OK Zest 2 Exp. kayak. In the product description, the OK Universal Rudder Kit you list indicates the kit would fit on an OK Zest 2, is that also true of the Zest 2 Exp? When I asked OK customer service for their rudder kit recommendation they indicated they don't currently offer a kit for Zest 2 Exp. and that I should look for an alternate aftermarket kit. It would be awesome if the kit you offer worked on my boat.
A: It's possible you could rig it but if we didn't list it as compatible and OK even said no then my guess is that it is not going to work.
