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. The recreational toe pilot controls are made of fiber reinforced plastic rails and can be mounted to the existing hardware on most sit-on-top kayaks. Rudder kit will NOT fit the Lure 10.
The rudder is extremely useful in windy and pushing current conditions. Helps you track straight as an arrow.
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.
A must have on the lure 13.5, keeps the kayak tracking straight in chop and the toe controls are easy to use.
The rudder kit is a must. Today, it was windy and the rudder did a nice job of maintaining my position far longer then I could have without it!
