 Product Description and Specs

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.

• Replaces smaller rudder blade on the Mirage Twist and Stow rudder system
• Provides more responsive rudder control
• Necessary if you plan on using the sail kit
• Adds lateral resistance needed for upwind sailing
• For the Adventure Kayak, consider the Daggerboard

Easy to replace the old one. Just a few screws. Significant difference. Kayak becomes very responsive to any subtle change in rudder direction. ( Maybe too responsive when at slow speed when you are fishing and you have to make frequent small adjustements). Worth having. Not sure why this is not a standard feature

I am not sure. I ordered the sailing rudder and turbo st fins installed when I bought my Oasis. The standard fins came with the boat as well as the standard rudder. The thing is the standard rudder I received and sailing rudder are the exact same, so who knows?

Easy to install. The size makes the response to the steering VERY FAST/SHARP. I really had to dial back on how much steerage to provide compared to the standard issue.

Q: will this fit all Hobie kayaks I have a tandem Mirage probably an older modeldoes the router come with the hardware like the pins and so forth.
Hi, Thank you for the question. This Large Hobie Twist and Stow Rudder Blade will fit on any Hobie kayak as long as it has the Hobie Twist and Stow Rudder assembly mounting bracket. The Twist and Stow assembly comes with a standard rudder blade. Frequently customers purchase the larger rudder blade for improved tracking, stability, and overall performance.
