For the Adventure Kayak, consider adding the Daggerboard for more control.

• 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

Vey easy to mount, just a phillips screwdriver. They call this the sailing rudder, and I am sure it is a must have for the sail kit. But the other benifit is slow speed response and turning radius. If this is important, then get this rudder! I mounted this to my Hobie Revolution 13 and what a difference! It is about double the size of the stock rudder in terms of surface area. It is a little longer, so will increase draft a little. The only other downside is a slight increase in drag.

Virtually a must-have upgrade. We own two Revo 13s and after I upgraded one to the sailing rudder, we immediately realized we would need to upgrade both. Reduces turning radius by about half and the only drawback is that it increases draw a few inches - still much less than fins.

Much better, a must have when sailing. A must-must have when sailing with two people in a tandem. I have an Outfitter. Wouldnt turn into the wind at all with the standard rudder.

This rudder in combination with a set of Turbo fins made a huge difference in the performance of my Adventure model. A must have set up for the larger kayak models for added stability and performance.

This is without a doubt the best possible upgrade in terms of ROI. I'm unaware of any other accessory that's $25 and rivals the positive change. Makes handling a breeze. Only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is the size/weight. It's to be expected, but be prepared for a more difficult raising and lowering experience. Other than that, buy it.

This "balanced" rudder makes a big difference in handling when sailing. The original rudder was very difficult to hold on a port tack. This one is much easier to hold.
