Review: The rudder is very well engineered and functions fine. But, getting there was a pain for me. The instructions were not clear. They could have been more clearly written. The pictures were out of focus and not much help. The instructions leave out the specifics about hooking up the up/down lines to the spool. Fortunately, there were instructions on the Hobie website that I found helpful. I apparently have an older model Quest 13 and the rudder control pedals have changed. The instructions said new pedals were included, but they were not. I had to devise a different method of attaching the lines to the pedals until I can get newer pedals. Once I got the installation done, I am satisfied with the product.

Review: Good - Rudder mechanism is solid, and works. Bad - Instructions are almost worthless. I had to throw them away, lay out all the parts, and figure it out through trial and error. The tube that encloses the control cord is too short to meet in the middle. To trim the system, after installation, you wrap the cord around a screw. Tacky.

Review: Very complete kit. Everything is included. Instructions were detailed but could be better. The photos are in black and white and some details are hard to see. The overall quality is excellent.

Review: Very complete kit, drill and Loctite included, easy to follow instructions, I would seriously consider this rudder even for a non-Hobie.
