The Hobie Large Sailing Rudder Blade is an over-sized sailing rudder blade for the Mirage series kayaks for a more responsive rudder control. Add the Large Sailing Rudder Blade to your Hobie Mirage kayak if you plan on using the sail kit. The larger surface area will provide lateral resistance needed for upwind sailing. For the Adventure Kayak, consider adding the Daggerboard for more control.

Review: Just get it! It is well worth it. My outback can turn on a dime and tracks considerably better with it! It is a must when navigating cover. I thought about it a lot before getting it but I am glad I did.

Review: Great upgrade for my Outback, and great compliment to the turbo fins. Tracking is better with this rudder, which translates to more hands free peddling. Note that its larger size causes it to overlap the rear hatch when it is in the stowed position. Not that big of a deal, but you will have to move the rudder to open the hatch.

Review: I found the blade to be an excellent replacement for my damaged blade

Review: Definitely increases maneuverability of kayak and is most apparent when used with sail kit, as was intended purpose. Doesn't seem to always "twist and store" as easily as original rudder, but this a minor nuisance.
