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.

Review: After installing the ruder upgrade I was absolutely amazed how much better the tracking and even the turning was improved. I fish in lakes and the bays the constant wake and waves are si much easier to navigate because of the larger ruder defiantly worth the money.

Review: Impressive improvement in fallowing seas and or severe current conditions. I trailer my PA12, no problem with rudder drag. While waiting a long time for delivery Austin Kayak kept me well informed, I'm pleased to do business with this company.

Review: As always ACK rules on shipping. Ordered afternoon of Feb 3rd at my doorstep on the 7th. Took less than 20 minutes to install. Finally went out and hit the water today 02/08/14 and if you don't have this $26 upgrade I don't know what you are waiting for. The stock rudder was responsive when in motion but if you were at a stand still or drifting didn't quite respond. This larger rudder is a night and day difference. Yes it sticks out about an inch and a half or so when the rudder is collapsed in but a simple mod can fix that problem. I trailer my PA so no worries there. If you throw your PA on the bed of your truck just place the Hobie cart in the scupper holes and that should provide plenty clearance so you don't damage the rudder. Once again if you don't have this upgrade GET IT...
