The Hobie Steering Knob Assembly gives you a more comfortable hand position and better leverage. Fits Tandem Island and all 2011 and newer Mirage model steering handles. Includes the steering knob and the attachment bolt and cap. Steering handle sold separately.
Bigger than expected. Gives feeling of better steering control, and prevents my fingers from getting tired after steering all day. Well made with thread-locking compound in a small groove to prevent the knob from coming loose. As a drawback, it sometimes conflicts with the position of my left leg.
The steering knob works well. The problem I have is when I am fishing I put my legs in the water and the knob is right under my leg and it is uncomfortable.
Got it installed in a matter of minutes. It just screws right into the steering handle. Sent a photo to my husband at work and now he wants one for his, so I'll be ordering another one as soon as I finish this review.
The knob works great. It makes steering a lot easier. I highly recommend it.
