I’m not shur what ones are late or early. I just started buying habs about two years ago. I’m 27 years old and a total Nubie when it comes to habs and surf fishing... They are all beautiful tools in the surf tho no matter what. I just noticed that there seems to be 2 different 2oz SR versions, but They All sink fast and cast wicked far! I can control where they are in the water very well. Plus all the legends that have caught cows on them. Holy ****! I have also had some epic nights with them. I love them!
