I still have lots of problem with the PA tracking..when I am slow trolling, and maybe trying to use a top water lure, I am constantly having to tweak the rudder to stay on a straight line. I also have a sore left forearm, anyone figured how to alleviate these problems. I have the new rudder cam installed, and that did make a lot of difference, but it's hard to cast when you are constantly having to attend the rudder. When I tighten the rudder control, that just makes it harder to adjust..frustrated at times to say the least.

Check out this post with the video link that shows the new steering handle for the 2011 PA.
There will be a retrofit available for earlier models. Could be a great upgrade.
