Write a review for Native Ultimate Rudder Kit
*Please Note: Both colors and patterns are for general reference only. Colors may vary from computer to computer.
I have the Ultimate Tandem
model. My boat came with the
rudder installed. It
works!!!!!!!! I really can't
imagine having this
boat without the rudder.
Having a rudder in the ultimate 14.5
tandem should not be optional in my
opinion. The installation instructions
were horrible and it took me all day to
install it. As a research scientist, I
do not think that I am stupid.....but the
directions for installation sure made me
feel that way.
I love the Rudder but not
happy with several parts and
cables being missing! Also I
was'nt aware that if your
Ultimate was made before 2008
you had to buy a bracket to
mount it. Thankfully I found a
Native dealer close by that
had some extra parts so I
could get it on in a hurry. I
the company should make sure
all the peices are in the box
I installed this rudder kit on my ultimate 14.5
Fairly easy to install, requires just a few basic
tools.Directions need updating,read through a
couple of times to save yourself some steps.
I didn't really enjoy my kayak till I installed
this kit. I would not have another 14.5 without a
rudder, but that is my preference.
I think it'll work great once it's fixed. Mine broke the first 5 minutes on the lake.
Great product. Be prepared to send 2-3 hours on the install. Directions are a bit vague but you can figure them out with a careful study. eg No need to cut stern rope on newer models. Also cable penetration on the stern is pre-molded no need to measure or place holes where the directions say. Once installed very versatile between single or tandem.

This rudder system is 1st class and far above others I have used. It is extremely easy to deploy and retract and there is no resistance to steering. A great and necessary product for my Ultimate 14.5 Tandem
