    Hereabouts (Southern California) we've often called the reels in Pelorus  
    Jack "dolphin reels" (must be another localism!..."dolphin reels" anywhere  
    else?), and have typically left tandem reels in their logical state  (cf. 
    someone's previous reference to a tandem bicycle) as reels in tandem with  the 
    leader and follower remaining unchanged.  Apparently then our  "tandem" 
    localism, albeït logical, is now in conflict with official  RSCDS terminology.

    IIRC, there should be a long discussion of this issue somewhere in the
    Strathspey archives from maybe 2-3 years ago if anyone's curious; I don't
    have time to check. -Steve
