May require optional tubing kit

Review: I have three Native Ultimates and have SmartTrack rudders on all three. I wouldn't have a kayak without a rudder and SmartTrack is the best one on the market IMO. To mount it on the Native Ultimate you have to use the rudder bracket from the Native rudder kit and enlarge the pin hole. There is also a after market rudder bracket for the Ultimate that will work.

Review: Why should I give you feedback if you are going to censor it - good system but not totally compatible with Focus 155 - drop in pin with no anchor falls out when being transported on side if not secured by bungee.

Review: Installation was easy (found a youtube video that showed everything step by step). I like the idea of the way the pedals work, but I personally have a bit of an issue pressing them. Not sure if it is an ergonomic issue with the design of my kayak (crappy homemade job), bad adjustment on my part, or just a pedal design that needs some tweeking. It just seems like I can't quite rotate my foot enough to press them all the way. But like I said, that might be something going on on my part, and maybe I can figure out how to make it a bit better (though it does work OK as- is). Otherwise, this kit is great, but make sure you also order the tubing kit. For some reason it is NOT included, and word on the streets is that other brands of tubing wont work with these cables.

Review: This is the best system on the market! It covers a wide range of attachment syles and the kit I purchased fit my Eddyline Whisperlight tandem perfectly. I added the Vertical Adjustment kit so that my wife can use the peddles with her small feet. The cable adjustment doesn't require swadging and easily tuned for proper tension. Also, the spring tension to deploy the rudder is adjustable and easy to raise when going over rocks or landing. Worth every penny I spent on this great design.
