Review: I should have listened to my sales counselor last January and let AKC install a rudder before shipping. I took the Ride 115 out this morning with rudder for the first time on Indian River Lagoon. The wind was at the upper end of what I would normally paddle in for bird photography. The rudder was a blessing as I stayed true to course on my paddle out to the rookery. There is one real negative to the kit. Honestly, Harmony could do a 100% better job of packaging kits if they would try to be less inclusive of Wilderness System's product line. There were no less than 10 different yak's worth of screws and fittings in the kit. That coupled with confusing directions would have added 50% time to the retrofit. My suggestion if you are retrofitting is to Google your Yak and rudder install and throw the directions away. I did that after step 1 and the install went great.

Review: I always thought I didn't need a rudder. Then I bought my Ride 135 I decided to try it. My advise for anyone who doesn't have a rudder on there Kay is get one. This one is prefect.

Review: The rudder kit installed easily on my Ride 135 thanks to the well designed yak. The instructions were adequate but illustrations would be a welcome addition. Unfortunately I can't test it until ice out.
