A well designed system that's easy to install and set up. I've been using the original system for a few years in an Epic 18 Endurance kayak, but racing took its toll on the older plastic rails and they broke on me. The new system with aluminum rails is exceptionally solid, while retaining the fixed foot peg/gas pedal rudder arrangement of the original system. Very easy to adjust for length, very easy to adjust pedal angle, and very easy to use while being quite robust. Properly set up, you can push solidly against the foot pegs and use your toes to make slight corrections (or full-bore turns) to optimize your course of travel. My only negative is that the new bolt locations are slightly closer together than the older system's bolt locations, requiring an elongation of the holes in my boat to accommodate the new system.

I was so glad to hear that this once-discontinued system is again manufactured and supported. The long black side pieces on the new version are metal, whereas the original version's were plastic, and one of mine had "exploded" (maybe one shouldn't do endo's in a long sea kayak?). Had this replacement set installed in no time at all, and it feels really solid.
So much for appreciation for repair parts! I've used the SmartTrack rudder system for four years, love the stationary foot pedals for bracing, and find the slim but well-designed rudder keeps the boat firmly on course in quartering seas and strong breezes. It is easily adjusted and serviced by an amateur, too - an important consideration when one uses (and abuses) one's boat frequently!
