Check out the 2017 Wave Runner line from Yamaha

All New EX and EX DeLuxe

The brief was straightforward: Blend together all the advanced technology, superior performance and handling, exclusive innovations and sheer reliability for which WaveRunners are renowned
the world over. But in a genuinely more affordable 3-seater package than has ever been seen before.

The result, Yamaha's exciting new EX Series - A real game-changer, set to introduce a whole new generation of riders and their families to the joy of WaveRunner. Opening up an exhilarating new
world of fun and enjoyment.

Powered by Yamaha's award-winning TR-1 engine

The EX models are powered by Yamaha's award-winning TR-1, 3-cylinder marine engine. Despite its punchy torque and impressive power, this plucky motor is 40% smaller, 20% lighter, and
provides better fuel economy than the previous 4-cylinder Yamaha MR-1 engine. What's more, its 50L fuel tank is nearly double the capacity of competitive models in this category.

Advanced Throttle Control on the EX DeLuxe - that's RiDE®

The EX DeLuxe features Yamaha's unique and exclusive RiDE® system, with the industry's first dual handlebar throttle levers that deliver new levels of precision and control, whether you're moving
forwards, in reverse - or just having fun carving some turns. The new EX Series - the best has never been this affordable - until now. (In fact, it's good to know that the remarkable, world-leading RiDE® system is now a standard feature on all WaveRunner models, except the EX and SuperJet.)

The Legend Returns

Ultra-high-performance fun - the new GP1800 Over many years, Yamaha's GP models - the GP1200 and GP1300R - forged an unbeatable reputation among serious racers the world over. This magnificent heritage is now exploited and thrillingly re-born in the shape of a brand new high-performance model, the GP 1800.

The answer to any performance enthusiast's prayer, it's a great-looking, super-powerful machine with a strong, agile hull and the ability to respond to the rider's every command precisely and predictably.

 Powered by the ultra-performance Yamaha SVHO® marine engine.
 Yamaha super-lightweight NanoXcel2™ hull and deck material.
 Now Equipped with Yamaha's exclusive and award-winning RiDE® system.
 Industry-first remote security system with Low-RPM mode™

HO. Completing Yamaha New Zealand's line-up for 2017 is the feature rich but value-packed VX Series, the race-performance VXR, and of course the famous Yamaha SuperJet. The New Zealand 2017 Yamaha WaveRunner Line-up at a glance :

The 2019 Daiwa Certate LT
Gear
Daiwa are arguably the world’s biggest banger in the fishing tackle market, so when they release a new top end product we expect it to be great. The Daiwa Certate spinning reel is well up the chain of ‘bling’ and will set you back in the neighbourhood of $800 give or take. Not their very top end, Branzino and Exist are there for the Rolex fans, but certainly as good a reel as you should ever need, and capable of handling some mega sized fish, and doing it smoothly with a dash of ‘mmmmm I love using this reel’.

As soon as we have a good field test under the belt we will be reporting back, but if looks could kill, these lures will be pure magic.
