Got my rudder kit for lure 11.5 , good price & fast shipping. But ack needs to update their youtube video & install instructions. Plus what`s those black rubber rectangle things for? Had to use pop rivets for uphaul cleat & feelfree must have discontinued a cable uphaul system as I just got a pad eye and paracord for that. Other than taking longer to install, I`m happy !!!

Although I have used rudders on other kayaks, this kit was not installer friendly, the peddle / toe control did not align with factory installed nuts nor mount correctly to the lure 11.5 properly. and the hardware sent for the rudder lift tie down were machine screws that you connot access the thread from the inside to install the nuts. Disappointed in the installation kit for the rudder and the price.

To be honest when I first took my feel free lure kayak out I was very disappointed. It is slow. Doesn't handle well. Zig zags when you paddle. It's impossible to sit straight long enough to even cast. By the end of the day you are ready to scream. My friends didn't believe me and were jealous of my new yak so I would even trade with them desperate to just get an easy paddle. Even they were ready to trade it in. I finally got the rudder hoping it would help and it's amazing I love my yak now. It's perfect. It paddles straight and turns on a dime. You should see the giant bass I've caught in the last couple trips! If you are buying the lure you NEED the rudder. Now my only complaint is that the lure doesn't come with it already. For the price and expectations the makers should know the struggles without it and it should be included. Other than that I wouldn't trade mine in for anything now. Mine is pink and it's so awesome that my boyfriend even begs me to let him take it out! GET THE LURE THEN THIS RUDDER. You won't be sorry. It's a great kayak for sure and the seat is by far the best on the market

I put this rudder kit on my Lure 11.5. Installation took about 30 minutes after watching the YouTube video. Fairly simple, aside from threading the rudder up haul line through the kayak. I recently kayaked a 20 mi. trip down the Brazos river and the rudder performed flawlessly. The wind wasn't an issue so long as the water was deep enough to keep the rudder down. I recommend getting this rudder kit!

A: Yes it has an UpDown line

Q: I have a lure 11.5 and it's not exactly light. So like Dennis mentioned in his question, I lift the bow up on the roof of my small car (a towel wedged underneath) and slide it on top from the wheel in the keel. It's simple and been working great but It seems like a rudder would hit the ground lifting the bow steeply. So is there a simple way to disconect and reconnect this rudder at the keel?
A: Hi, Thank you for the question. There is no "quick and easy way" to remove the rudder without disassembling the rudder control cables.

Q: Hi, I am going to order a Lure 11.5 with the rudder installed and I will be top transporting the kayak on the roof of my vehicle. I was going to use a Yakima Showboat66 loading assist unit and was wondering if the rudder will be in the way of the ground when I lift up the bow to load it on ? Thanks, Dennis Byron.
A: It all depends on the height of your vehicle. In most cases, the rudder will be touching the ground so you can mount the kayak rudder first and then lift the bow(front) of the kayak.
