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.

  • FD 3D Rudder Kit

    I wasn’t sure what rudder mod to get for my 2018 coosa FD. I tried the Jackson FD 3D Rudder Kit and it made a significant difference tracking and seems to improve speed while using drive. Installation was simple. Lightweight Unlike the metal boondock rudder.

    Huge improvement over the original rudder. Not bulky like the old one. Thin, lightweight, seems more durable .

    This is hands down a superior rudder than the original black one. Not only can I turn on a dime, the need to trim back and forth constantly is greatly reduced. I went out yesterday in 20 mph winds on the lake here in Colorado and was amazed at how well the new rudder tracked now. Reversing is also much better and the yak actually responds to steering movements where it was vague at best before. If you're thinking about getting this cheap enhancement on your pricey Kayak, I'd say do it without reservation. It is a huge improvement overall.
