Our team spent months studying designs to further improve the on water experience for our customer. We modeled, printed and tested several profiles before finishing the distinctive elements of our 3D rudder.

Our new rudder is injection molded glass filled nylon. It carries additional blade length which improves turning radius and tracking. We also enhanced the blade geometry which optimizes interaction between the water column and rudder blade that can be felt when maneuvering your FD. The rudder post is notched which allows debris to flow down and out of the space between the post and scupper when in use.

  • Easy installation.
  • Retrofittable to all Jackson Kayak FD models.
  • Made in the USA.

  • 3D Rudder Upgrade

    Posted by Randy Wensmann on Jul 19th 2021

    Replaced 2018 Cruise FD steering and rudder with new version, night and day how much easier it is to get the kayak tracking straight. Don't hesitate if you have an older model, replace steering, rudder, and prop and you will be extremely happy for under $100 it will change your kayak massively. Matt was really good answering questions, customer service at Jackson is #1.

    The rudder and hub piece look great. It is beyond me though to understand why the correct clevis pin is not also included to make attaching the rudder process easier. My brand new BRFD also did not include a clevis pin. So annoying.
