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 bought the rudder based on other Lure owners recommendations and I'm glad I did. I had just recently bought a like new but used 13.5 and installed the rudder before I had a chance to actually use the kayak. I fished a tournament a few days later. It was a very windy day, even for Kansas, and I could definitely tell the difference between my rudderless Ascend FS128t and the Lure. It tracked a lot straighter and made sharper turns and I was able to maintain a heading with a lot less effort. I watched the video a couple of times and the installation went well until it was time to install the cord for lifting and lowering the rudder. That turned out to be a bit of a struggle. After trying the first two suggestions unsuccessfully, I resorted to using the wire method. I used aluminum electric fence wire because it's what I had on hand. If I had to do it again, I would make the trip to the hardware store and buy a thinner diameter galvanized wire. I think it would have made the job easier. Overall, I think the rudder will be a good investment even if it's a bit pricey.

Q: Does this rudder kit have a uphaul so I can flip the rudder up as I"m coming to shore. From some of the other posts I get the feeling it does not.
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.
