ACK Review: The smarttrack rudder kit is a excellent rudder for people want the added stability that comes with just adjusting your feet not your legs.

Excelente, envío rápido a Europa. El kit es de gran calidad y muy fácil de instalar aún siendo universal, para diferentes modelos. Yo lo he instalado en un Kayak marca Nova Artic 1 que viene con pre instalación y ha quedado perfecto. Gracias.

Review:
This rudder rocks. I had a larger rudder by Yakima on a 14.5 Perception Carolina. It had a quite a bit of drag and I eventually broke a cable. I switched to this rudder and it has much less drag. I hardly notice it in the water. The rudder was easy to install. I also used the vertical adjustment kit and it helped with pedal placement. The toe pedals are great and you alway have a solid footrest regardless if the rudder in in or out, left or right. There are rods connected to the pedal so you can adjust where the pedal is (i.e. fore or aft), right from the cockpit without reaching down. It is right next to your thigh. I used the existing holes on my kayak to mount the vertical adjustment kit. It helped get the pedal lower to keel as I short and have smaller feet. The vertical adjustment kit is a good investment and made the whole intallation easy. Austin Kayak was also great as I wasn't sure what size pin I needed. Overall Austin Kayak was great and so is the rudder.

The Smarttrack system rocks. I retrofit my tarpon 160 with their pedals, and it was a pain getting them mounted, but they are super nice and fit the way my legs relax outwards perfectly. Spring loaded rudder is the bomb. very easy deployment. Austin helped me out with a minor defect in my kit. They were great!!!!! Excellent customer service. just a little toe pressure turns the boat. LOVE THEM!!

I had the guys at ACK put one of these on my Tsunami 140, as I discovered it had a mind of it's own in any noticeable wind. I didn't like the idea of sliding foot pedals like the Wilderness rudder kit had, and these are most excellent! Just a little toe pressure sends you where you want to go, and it flips up and stows nicely with no effort, in fact you have to pull against a bungee to lower it. My wife has the Hobie twist & stow rudder on her Quest, and I usually have to pull alongside to help her get it down. The smarttrack is number one in my book!!!
