The Feelfree Lure Rudder Kit is a SmartTrack Rudder Kit designed for the Feelfree Lure 11.5 and 13.5 kayaks. It combines fixed foot pegs with movable rudder pedals to give you more control and better performance when paddling your kayak. The rudder housing has a pin that installs through a vertical hole on the stern of the kayak and secures with a split ring. This kit includes toe controls that install on your existing foot pedals, so you don't have to remove your rails. Rudder kit will NOT fit the Lure 10.
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.
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!
Good Product, Easy installation once you figure out how to install. The negative is there are no written instructions or diagram. You have to watch a youtube video over and over to see exactly how to install. Five stars if they included a printed diagram. ACK was a great company to do business with. Fast and accurate shipping.
