    Review:
    I bought the kit for my Wilderness Systems Pamlico 160T (tandem) kayak. The installation is relatively simple, but the written instructions are plainly poor. No pictures, no diagrams and all the models are covered in each installation step. There is a video on the web, which is a lot more useful than the written instructions. The kit comes with lots and lots of hardware, but relatively little stuff is used for any particular model. The rest is for you to keep as a bonus for buying an overpriced item. Once installed it made a huge difference in how the Kayak handles. It needs some maintenance if you're planning to use it in sandy water. The send gets trapped in the rudder's mechanism and prevents it from moving freely. After cleaning it it works great again.

    Easy to use, great for traversing open water with wind. No problems in lowering or raising the when necessary.

    The rudder is a god send. When floating with the wind it really allows me to control my direction allowing me to spend more time fishing and less time paddling to make wind corrections.

    A must have. I had three other yaks without rudders. I was missing out. Everyone must have a rudder.

    I'm not a fan of this rudder it has a vibration it when going straight and all the bolts have been check for tight. So that being said it almost always stays up and dry.

    The Wilderness Systems BTS Rudder Kit is a great kit and smooth installation. Instructions cover a number of different models so is a bit confusing. Took a couple hours and now have much better control. great addition to my Tarpon 140.
