6/17/2018 
We received a bit of a surprise this week with a few Okuma Tesoro 5S reels arriving.  Nice reel, small but capable with surprising line capacity from such a compact piece.  Other notable products posted include some very productive jigs, deckhand tool necessities, an inventory balancing special on poppers, and some wonderful fishing rods.  Finally the bluefin have begun biting well. It's Friday and this morning we got word on some 200 lb sized tuna coming over the rail from US waters. Seems to be lots of volume between Catalina and San Clemente. There's some nice schoolie stuff out there as well as the big brutes. One of our clients dropping off to show pics of his 40 lb catch on a smaller party boat with only 15 anglers scoring a limits on 30-60# fish. He's come back with tuna the past two weeks. There is quite a range in size on the tuna, so if you're heading out be prepared...  Yellowtail fishing has improved significantly, some fish up to 40 lb at the Coronados, 25-40 lb locally and off Catalina.  Heard from an angler who reported tuna tight to the coast off La Jolla! I didn't see 'em, could be delusional, but really I don't doubt that he did see 'em. The guys at our HB shop came across some images from one of the spotter planes searching the water off San Clemente - nothing short of amazing looking at the volume of the smaller tuna and the BIG fish too. The big ones looked like big porpoise, but they were bluefin and easily over 200 lbs.  Gentlemen, it's getting interesting out there. Time to fill up the tanks and go fish'n.
As always, thank you for visiting our Weekly Specials!

Sincerely,
Mark Smith

Billing: Please note, we do things a bit differently than other on-line businesses, in part due to my own concerns over on-line privacy and fraud protection. When you submit your order with us, you will not be asked for your CVC number during check out. You are immediately sent an order confirmation. We will then contact you by phone or email to confirm your order, make sure rigging if needed is clearly understood, stock availability confirmed and then we will ask for the CVC and process your order. We do NO billing online. Best practices for on-line credit card transactions is to never store CVC numbers - for YOUR PROTECTION. Once we process your order and bill your card, that information is shredded. You will need to re-enter that data each time your order on-line. We do this to protect your private information.  I was on the bad end of a fraud situation some years back, twice, $40K each time, over 80K! One was an ACH transfer, the other bogus credit card billing. I'm still on the hook for over 20K, from what I considered a trusted supplier.... You can not count on your bank's help, but you can limit your exposure. Think about that next time you order from an on-line retailer who holds your credit card information.  We don't do business that way. We treat our clients like we'd like to be treated, thus the added security.  

FREE Fed Ex GROUND SHIPPING*
*Free Shipping for orders over $150 (one package, MOST rods will carry a surcharge of $20) shipped within USA FedX or USPS - AK and HI via USPS included so long as your order can fit in a standard size flat rate box - otherwise there will be a charge).  Oversize items, like lobster nets, rods and International orders will carry a shipping charge which we will quote you prior to billing.  Please note, FedEx and UPS no longer want the long rod business. They have increased their shipping rates for boxes 96 inches or greater, increased to over $100!  We have a work around for most of CA, but have not found an alternate arrangement for the long rods.  Working on it...  Reason for the increase, increased handling costs - labor vs. conveyer and machine, it takes a human to move the long boxes without risk of damage...

*Standard Size and Weight Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!  Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Rods & Blanks, given their extra length, will have an added cost of up to $20 - this is a change for 2015 due to increased shipping charges from FedEx and UPS, packaging costs also increased this year for longer boxes. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. The Free Shipping offer applies to ONE standard size/weight box going to ONE address. Orders requiring more than one box will have additional shipping fees for the second box. *(One standard sized and weight box, within USA. If the order requires multiple shipping cartons then there will be increased shipping costs. Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you).


Special #1

Avet G2 Series Single & Two Speeds
Save 10% OR Take Advantage of Special Offers
(like free rigging)

For 2017 Avet has announced the new G2 Series (as in generation II) reels to their line. The new reels offer increased drag performance, important for those fishing heavier lines. Also, similarly to the Raptor series, the spool and frame allow for a modest increase in line capacity and smoother performance at higher drag settings. These single drag reels increase the flexibility of the models in comparison to the standard series. For instance, the new JX model now can fish 50# very well, while the standard JX is really a 40# and down piece, the JX/LX G2's can cover 40/50 and even 60# lines with appropriate drag performance. That's a significant upgrade in performance over the standard series reels, and the lever upgrade is also quite useful in setting more precise drag levels and in operation. Whether or not the G2's upgraded performance is right for you depends upon the line tests you plan on fishing in my estimation. Again, back to the JX, if your intent is to fish the piece at 30-40 lb test leaders, then there's no big reason to spend the extra money. However, if you are like me, and want to fish 40-50# on a JX, then the upgrade is very significant and makes the piece a value when compared to the Raptor version. For Avet to provide us fishermen such a range in products, all geared to the types of fishing we do, well it's wonderful and demonstrates that these folks are indeed listening to their clients and coming to market with products that suit all anglers. With respect to the SX/MX series G2's, I see a logical generational improvement. The drag curves were fine with the earlier models for fishing say 30# and down, really better suited for 25# and down lines. Given an increase in drag of about 40% above the previous models, 13 lbs at strike, we're really still looking at fishing 30# and down rather than 40 - but there's going to be less sideload pressure on the spool bearing, greater longevity when the reel is pushed to higher and more appropriate drag settings for 30 lb line and down.

(Just to help in the confusion department: I've had a few calls from folks asking when the G-2 HX's will be produced. Well, they won't be made, the HX really was the first G-2 offered! The SX-LX series reels are following that reel series design, incorporating it's features across the new G-2 models. The first generation SX, MX, JX & LX will stay in the line, at least for now. Feeling from Avet is that the first gen models are most appropriate for those fishing light drag loads, so they still have a reason to be produced...and of course they cost a bit less, so Avet customers have more flexibility in putting their dollars to the best use for their particular applications.)

 


MXL 6/4 G-2's

SX 6/4 MC - G-2

 

The first production will be in the Neptune's Heart color combo - bronze and red as pictured above. This will carry a $10 higher cost than the standard colors. We've now received SX and MX series reels in most standard colors as well as the two color Neptune. The JX/LX series will follow this month - could likely be end of January before the larger two models are completed.

Special #2

Okuma Tesoro
Star Drag

The Tesoro is a 2018 model reel, first shown at ICAST July 2017. The new star drag reels got a lot of attention from anglers, with the improvement in casting of leverdrags it seems there's a preponderance of lever's and less star drag reel options for serious anglers who are looking for a high quality star.  There really are applications where both types of reel offer advantages. 20 years ago, if you wanted a good casting reel it pretty much had to be a star drag. These days, in no small part thanks to Cal Sheets, Larry Cofe, and of course Avet, lever drag reels improved. But, still you can do some things with a star drag reel you just can't duplicate on a leverdrag.  So, there's a market among anglers for the benefits a good star drag can offer.  As of this date (11/17) Daiwa's Saltiga has been the class act in this regard. Along comes the Tesoro, and I have to say it's similarly refined, but a very different reel.  The metal-work is very good, as expected, but you'll also note that these are trimmer than what we're used to handling, excess weight has been taken off areas of the reel where it's not needed. Freespool is simply excellent, and the drag is very capable, you can button 'em down and not effect casting performance.  Could very well become the wahoo reels of choice for a lot of guys. Compact, light, modern technology and application of best practices in design...and a 3 year warranty.

The Tesoro reels make use of (buzzword) alumilite frame construction which provides more precise tolerances for precise gear alignment, maximum castability, and durability. The mechanical stabilizing system keeps the reels in precise alignment for strong, stable and smooth long term performance. Okuma also has a patent pending enhancement which stabilizes the spool at three key points to maintain optimum performance and minimize spool shaft flex when under pressure.

- High Speed 6.2:1 gear ratio
- 6061-T6 machined aluminum frame, sideplate and spool
- 17-4 grade stainless steel helical cut gearing
- Multi-disc Carbonite drag system with Cal’s drag grease
- CRC: Corrosion-Resistant Coating Process
- Swept aluminum star for increased ergonomics
- Anodized aluminum swept handle reduces wobble while cranking
- 4BB+1RB corrosion resistant bearings, spool bearing with TSI oil
- Ergo grip handle knob with anodized aluminum handle arm
- Dual anti-reverse (mechanical and roller bearing)
- XL Gearing: Drop down gear box
- Quick-Set ant-reverse bearing allows for zero back play in handle
- MSS: Mechanical Stabilizing System for increased durability
- Self-lubricating gear system, all models

That type of stuff is all good, no, lets make that excellent and just one step from incredible.  But, I'm a bit more into feel, touch, subjective evaluation.  All the buzzwords and specs don't mean as much as how a reel actually feels doing what it's supposed to do. Okuma has another winner in my estimation.  The Tesoro feels like a quality reels should, better since it's pretty darn light. You could call it a star drag Makaira, and in some respects that might be fair, but it's a much different reel and one that needed to be made.  There's no slop in the handle, everything feels reassuringly solid and tight, smooth upon  cranking the handle.  Nice feel.  Excellent freespool, really these are excellent casting reels. Great for distance casting, and hard pulling drag capability. 

I very much appreciate all that the Okuma engineers are doing to try to minimize the effects of saltwater. The treatment to the metal parts, and (one of my peeve points on almost all other manufacturers) the Tesoro has proper porting, so you can actually clean a reel after a hard days fishing. Take a look at the pics below to see what I mean, four ports, no vac lock, easy drain while fishing or when you're back home cleaning, good airflow for drying...makes a difference long term in my book.

 

It's often the little things that make big differences in how well certain reels perform over time.  Did the manufacturer shortchange on the bearings, or make use of a cheap stamped clamp or reel foot. How are they putting their parts together? That's what makes working on a reel simple or overly complicated, so darn hard to work on that a reel becomes more fit for the garbage basket than repair bench. Well, the Tesoro is really pretty straight ahead in how she's put together. In a lot of ways, you could say this relatively light reel is overbuilt.  Note the way the reel foot is put together, four points secured to reel frame - not two, reel clamp allows plenty of thread on the bolts to be secured.  One could call it overbuilt for it's intended line class by some standards, but I'd suggest it's just built to best practices standards.   

 

The images above show off the first two models in the line, however as of June 2018 Okuma began supplying the third model in the Tesoro series, the model 5S. The 5 is just a bit smaller, smaller diameter sideplate, about 8 or so ounces less in weight, but the same overall construction as the two larger models. The 5S is pictured below... 

 

Please note, we received  a few of the model 5S. The 10's & 12's have been on the market for a few months and customer feedback has been VERY positive.  Supply has been tight for all models, with some inventory air shipped into country over the past couple weeks. We probably shouldn't be putting these up on the Weekly page, since supply may be an issue until later this month.  But, we do have some inventory to work with and we've been receiving a lot of emails asking about the release date for the little 5S. So, we're getting the word out that these can now be ordered.

Okuma Andros Series A 2 Speeds
FREE SUPER BRAID SPOOLING!

The previous model Andros 2 speeds were superb, I well know having purchased both the 5 and 5N myself. I fished the crap out of 'em over the past 3 or 4 years, they were my go to reels for their line class - fishing these for 20-40 lb test lines (40-50 lb braid as backing). The new reels go my own previous generation reels a few steps better, pricing dropped, cosmetics in my mind improved, construction got beefed up a bit, oh, did I mention the price dropped. The first one I bought cost $399...the new ones $319! (5 & 5N 2 speeds).  No buyers remorse here, I love those reels, but no doubt the new versions are even better, more akin to the Makaira series... The first of this new series to arrive were the 5's, followed shortly after with the 12 and 16 sizes (at reasonable prices of $369 up). The 12S - high speed was delayed...for over a year's time. Finally, all models are  available - and they were well worth the wait!

FROM A CLIENT
Subject: Okuma Andros reel used on Polaris Supreme 5 day last week
8/8/2013

Hey, thanks for setting me up with a great reel.  It seemed too tiny to do what it did, and did it well.  We were into Bluefin over 60# and it never balked.  I checked the drag each evening and it stayed close, fricking amazing for what looks like a fresh water bass reel.  I fully expected it to fail under the conditions we were in (and with a 50/40 set up getting used hard).  Maybe that company has stepped up design and quality control. Also, thanks for the freebee package you sent to my dad (John Costello).  He caught the #2 and #3 fish on the same reel.

"Beta" is an excellent private boater as well, but these days he's hitting the surf a few days each week and has gotten other staff here involved in his early morning routine.  The guy has fished a lot of gear over the years, and sadly most reels have been "disposable" in that they reach a point where they just aren't worth working on.  A few years ago he got a Ballistic, and that's been his favorite reel by far, and one that can withstand heavy use in the salty stuff.  Great reels in the past and their new LT version which was introduced at ICAST 2017 improves upon the old model.

The new Ballistic LT's were specifically engineered to reduce weight and increase performance.  The new models make use of a super tough Zaion housing, machined A7075 aircraft grade aluminum DigiGear that ensures smooth and steady line flow and durability.  Mag Sealed for increased durability. This innovation which has been present on Daiwa's most expensive models prevents water and debris intrusion - it's a big reason why these reels are so strongly recommended for the surf. Seven bearings ensure smooth performance and long distance casting. The Ballistic LT's feature enhanced durability that stands up to the harshest conditions, in toughest environments. The reels also feature Daiwa's air rotor and air bail to further minimize weight. The new model Ballistics deliver serious performance, from a modern, light, compact and strong spinning reel.

 

⦁ New Smaller frame, body and housing

⦁ ZAION Housing LT Concept- very light yet very strong 

⦁ Machined A7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum DIGIGEAR- smoothness and durabilit

⦁ MAGSEALED-reduces water and debris from traveling down the shaft

⦁ 7-Bearing System 1-CRBB, 5-BB and 1BB

⦁ Designed for  freshwater, inshore and offshore applications

GUSA U.S. SERIES
Dual Helix
New Models Added

These are the original GUSA designs, dual helix carbon fiber construction - no 'glass in the mix. High quality graphite is used in these rods, like the rest of the UC lineup, but more of it and no fiberglass used for these classics. Hoop strength is created through the dual helix build, so no compression of the blank when under load and far greater durability than ever thought possible on a graphite rod - stronger than fiberglass. These are light for their rating verses other rods, and they are incredibly strong. These are the rods that built GUSA's reputation for strength and lightness. In the fall of 2016 United Composites added this series to their factory wrapped mix as a new series of rods to complement the Challenger Elite, Swimbait Finatic  and Challenger Platinum series rods. As of this writing there are now 13 different models, old time favorites being produced and some new ones, too. This series will expand to include additional models as time progresses, but what's offered now are the one's folks have asked to have produced first. The rods are beautifully finished, ALPS dual lockdown seats, metal gimbals, and metallic blue wraps.  Very nice rods, exceptional is a better way to put it.

GUSA or US Series - The original GUSA series designed rods, DUAL HELIX build, no fiberglass. A bit faster in action than the Challenger Elite series. The GUSA series rods include some old and new favorites like the Tilefish, Predator, Monster, etc. In basic terms, the US series offers four carbon patterns in the build, dual helix times two for a four ply rod. The carbon fiber used to build the GUSA series rods is twice the strength (almost double the GSM - grams per square inch) of the carbon used on other rods like Seeker and Calstar - nearly double the amount of carbon fiber in the material used. That provides much faster recoil than a Grafighter, energy is loaded up and released faster, and the rods are stronger with far greater hoop strength (which is the weak point on any rod under compression or a load). Much like Calstar's design progressed rod performance beyond fiberglass in the late 1990's, so too does the manner in which UC's rods are built and the material used in their production significantly improves performance for fishermen today. These are wonderful rods to own and fish for decades to come. In my own collection, the CP series and the GUSA series are very well represented, and my favorites to fish.  One pull and you'll understand why, one good fish on the other end and you'll probably find good reason to replace a few of your previous favorite rods, they really are that good.

Rods will carry a $20 shipping charge within continental USA.

ToroTamer
Inventory Adjustment!

ToroTamer did their inventory, well they still have a bit to go. But, noticed a rather major stock imbalance. They're overstocked on the small poppers. The big ones got the most heat the past couple years in our area, the small lures were hotter on the export market - Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama.  Toro ramped up the inventory levels on the little guys to support sales down south. But, distributor for Central America went out of business. That leaves Toro's warehouse overstocked on the smaller 120 mm lures.  These are thru wired, with treble hooks. Great lures for tossing with spinning gear or smaller baitcasters.  Lures weight 1 1/2 ounces, and are just a tad under 5 inches in length.  Regular price is $12.99, but not this week...

Custom Wrapped Deckhand Plier Sets

Another excellent set of tools for anglers. Go on a boat and check the tools used by the deckhands, might be something similar hanging from their belt...but chances are not quite as nice.  These quality drop forged tools, needle nose and dikes, offer very good quality, and then they are customized by a fellow angler who does some very nice cordwork. With the "wraps" and unique knots, and some sealant to ensure they stay secure long term, these tools are confidence inspiring - and they do look darn good, too.

The tools are not stainless steel, but they will last a lifetime with appropriate maintenance, a rinse with freshwater and a bit of oil will keep 'em functional. The wraps are guaranteed to hold up by the man who produces the pliers. We do have some nylon deckhand sheaths available at our shop which can be added to your order. In all honesty, pliers this good should have a nice leather sheath...

 

 

 

 

Well, we hooked up with a fellow who does some wonderful leatherwork, AC Plier Holsters.  The fellow making these premium grade holsters does excellent work. These can very well be lifetime products for the fisherman. Top quality leather, excellent and durable stitching.  They are just flat out perfect.  We have these made in both black and brown, with and without tuna spike receiver.

Speaking of spikes, folks have been asking for us to stock this necessity. Dispatch a tuna like a pro with these handground tooks.  Like the pliers, they are made by the same fellow, top quality for decades of use.  We have two versions of spikes available: metal noggin and bone-head with headband. Both fit nicely in a guys hand.

Yo-Zuri High Speed Vibe
Troll or Cast

One of the most interesting new lures, introduced at 2017's ICAST, is Yo-Zuri's High Speed Vibe.  The lure has some functional similarities to the Halco Max 130, it's an effective trolling lure AND cast and retrieve lure.  Both applications can be done very well with this versatile lure.  The lures are 5 1/4 inches (130mm), weigh 2 7/8 oz (80gm). They are thru-wired, sinking design.

From the manufacturer:

The brand new High Speed Vibe is a realistic lure manufactured to match baitfish found up and down the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. This unique lure can be trolled up to 15 knots, casted and retrieve or fished vertically in open water for a variety of saltwater game fish. The vibrating action of this lure is proven to entice strikes and the innovative through wire technology guarantees that fish won’t break off after the initial hook up. This is a sinking lure and can be fished at all depths/ranges. With key features like Yo-Zuri’s patented color change technology, powerbody and premium terminal tackle, the High Speed Vibe is sure to be your new go to lure!

  • “Power Body” with through wire construction

  • Welded shaft

  • Through wire construction

  • 3x treble hooks

  • Patented Color Change Technology

Our take? Well, the lure's finish is great, cosmetics excellent, rigged appropriately and can be enhanced with single hooks if that's your preference (Eagle Claw and VMC both offer in-line replacement hooks).  The trebles which come with the lures are 3X strong, plenty good for schoolie tuna.  I'm really thinking these new lures will shine brightly when we get a good run of albacore down here.  For those in NorCal and the Pacific Northwest, these lures might be of great interest for your summer albacore fishing.

Halco and Yo-Zuri comparison pic left. First glance, hooks appear better on the Yo-Zuri and the coloring process should be longer lived.  Both lures are nicely weighted and track well on the troll, both can be used cast and retrieve. Sure is nice to have some good options.

Fall Flat Jigs
Productive & Popular!

Here's a very effective lure, well proven in 2016. Schoolie tuna, both bluefin and yellowfin will gobble these up.  The Fall Flats are a metal jig that has a slower action on the drop, fluttering like a baitfish that's in shock from being hit by a predator. These are relatively slow drop jigs. We're focusing on their heavier weights at the present time. If you want lighter weights we can certainly get 'em, but really also have that base well covered with a similar jig from Savage Gear (their Squish jigs). The finish of these is quite good, will reflect light well. There are some similar lures out there, so why do we like these?  The weights and finish are consistent to what we were looking for, and the rigging was done right. No cheezy making bait type assist hooks. The hooks used for these jigs are of heavier gauge steel, and a bit larger than what you'd likely see on some other similar products in the marketplace. Pricing is also fair for what's offered. So, we're glad to offer our clients a lure which should be helpful, both for the smaller schoolies and capable of taking much larger tuna under the schoolies with the higher 200 and 250 gm weights.

Well, the idea of only stocking the 200 & 250 gm sized lures didn't last long... Got quite a few guys stopping by the shop to tell us that we really should be stocking the smaller sizes, so that's what we did. 125/160/200 & 250 gram size Fall Flats are now available, priced at a very reasonable $8.99, 10.99, 11.99 & 13.99 respectively. For 2018 heavier sizes are now available for targeting deeper water tuna.

The Slash - Cast and Rip Bait

BACK IN STOCK

Slash jigs can be fished a couple ways, for great effect. For our long range fishermen, it's a GREAT wahoo lure in the two smaller sizes of 100 and 150 gm. For deepwater enthusiasts it's a deep water tuna jig with excellent action on the drop and wind, with the 300 and 400 sizes being the lure of choice for the larger grade bluefin and yellowfin tuna which tend to hold deeper than the schoolie fish. The lure's casts great and they are rigged properly with a higher quality single hook and a ball bearing swivel (ours even points the right way...) attached with welded rings. Colors and finish are top quality. While it will bring in wahoo when they are around, don't be afraid to jig it for tuna and yellowtail. If your fishing trip heads to Alijos you've got a great wahoo lure, but if it shifts gears and moves to Cedros fine, you've got the right lure for yellowtail. If instead you hit the banks for rockfish, you've still got an effective lure on your hands. The two smaller sized lures work great on the "slide" as an enticement to other school fish following a troll strike. One lure, fits a few applications, and a few different styles of fishing. 

This versatile lure can be fished several ways, cast and retrieve, vertical yo-yo style jigging, and speed jigging. There is a very slight curve to the lure, allowing a bit more action on the drop and as the lure is bounced up. This can be accentuated by the angler easily, and it's not a bad call on the two smaller sizes, though not something I recommend on the two largest sized slash lures. It's important to keep a good contact on the lure if you're fishing yo-yo style for a couple reasons. First, you won't know you've been bitten unless you've got contact with the lure, secondly the lure can foul itself on the two larger sized Slash lures - those with the receiver for use with small lightsticks. if you don't offer some control of its accent or descent when not using a light stick the lure's hook can enter the cavity. It's not common, but it can be done if you do not have some control of the lure's very fast decent to depth.

Based upon client feedback, we've expanded this series of lures back in 2012. We have two new LARGE size jigs to add to the assortment. The new 300 and 400 gram sizes are perfect for dealing with better grade tuna when they're holding deep. Of course they'll also do a number on yellowtail and wahoo if you need to go down to get 'em. Given the deeper water application, we've added our Illuminata feature, the new LARGE size jigs have a recess for use of a 4.5mm light stick. Go deep, get noticed and get bit!

The 300 and 400 gm size Slash lures turned out to be THE best lure for larger grade bluefin in 2014. There was no better lure, and as the guys on the Red Rooster III told folks heading out last summer, "Don't get on the boat without some." They proved their worth as the images below testify. The two smaller weight versions of the jig also performed very well as a cast and retrieve lure, or fished on the slide for schoolie tuna. It's been more often fished as a casting lure for wahoo, but the tuna take 'em too.

 

Our slash bait is available in four sizes this season:
150 gm, 5.29 oz, 6 1/2"
300 gm, 10.6 oz /180mm, 7"
400 gm, 14.11 oz /200mm, 8"

 


 

The Slash became the top producing lure for big bluefin during the 2014 bite, with the 300 and 400 gm sizes being preferred given their fast drop, shape and action.
