On request we have fabricated a longer set of backing plates, for boats with more surface area. These 9" backing plates plates will give you all the strength and coverage your Landing Gear needs. The 9" Backing Plates are mostly used on the Native Slayer and are highly recommended on the Hobie Pro Angler camo editions, but can be used on any boat with the sufficient amount of flat area needed to install them.
Note: These will not work on every kayak, only those with enough flat area to mount. Please verify that no foam, cords, or any obstacles on the inside of your boat will prevent you from using the longer backing plates.
