 Product Description and Specs

The Hobie Large Rudder Blade for the Pro Angler is a large rudder blade designed by Hobie specifically for Pro Angler kayaks. Consider upgrading your Pro Angler rudder if you want better control in choppy or windy conditions of if you tend to overload the bow of your kayak. The Large Pro Angler Rudder Blade is longer than the traditional rudder blade so it will require some special handling when loading and transporting your boat. If you've experienced poor steering performance on your Pro Angler, the large rudder blade will give you that extra control you need.

• Upgraded rudder blade for the Pro Angler
• Provides more responsive rudder control
• Improves control in choppy or windy conditions
• Longer rudder blade will need special handling during loading and transport
• Rudder blade only

the xl rudder is on my 2014 pa-14. it was not a simple install, no instructions, had to use a phillips head driver on a ratchet wrench, to get enough torque. went on easily after the original was removed. have used it several times, and will give it 4 stars, it does improve short radius turnout, and provides additional directional stability. the place where i experienced the most improvement was when drifting along a shoreline, i can stay 40-50 feet offshore and fly fish the shoreline cover. by adjusting the rudder angle, and occasional use of the mirage drive, i can drift along parallel to shore for as long as i want.

the new rudder improves response from stopped to tight turn, as when drifting, then turning to avoid obstacles. also makes controlling drift attitude and direction when fishing, much more precise. i do a lot of fly fishing along lake shores while drifting parallel to shore with wind and current, rudder lets me control drift better than stock unit.
