Review: Ordered this with my Tarpon 140. Al the components are well made. ACK did most of the install. All I had to do was bolt the assembly to the stern of the boat when the shipment arrived at my home. Only complaint is that the ends of the foot peg sliders are kinda sharp on my calves. As far as function - I love it: Effortlessly make straight paddles across the lake. Fine tune your drift to position the boat for the perfect cast. I even figured out how to use it as a brake while keeping the boat straight when using the paddle on the opposite side.

Review: I put this rudder on a Tarpon 160. It has no noticeable effect whatsoever. The Tarpon 160 does not want to turn and this thing does not help with that or with the wind. I have another 14 kayak with virtually the same rudder and it works as expected but the Tarpon 160 is a real pain to turn and this rudder does not help; nor does it help in the wind.

Review: Clean install, works as intended. I have mixed feelings on this. It was suggested by a friend that I add the rudder due to the size of my new kayak. It will also allow some hands free control while I fish. It did take some getting used to the first time I used it but practice makes perfect.
