The Hobie Rudder Mount - Mirage is the replacement rudder mount for older Hobie Mirage kayaks. The Hobie Rudder Mount - Mirage fits Hobie Kayak models produced prior to 2007 and will not work with the Twist and Stow rudders.
Mine fit the hull perfectly, exact replacement. I had to file the pin down to fit through the rudder mount but I can't say if the pin was slightly too big or the shaft hole slightly undersized. It was an easy solution and ACK was very helpful.
The vertical tube was not cut at right angles; needed 2 minutes with a flat file to square up top & bottom before it would fit. Otherwise a perfect replacement for the original. Hobie has an on-line installation video which was helpful in getting the rigging right but the included instructions were sufficient.
