v.i. (Go) slack, sag (of a rope, line or net). Kua karu te ao e kua ora te ika. The line went slack and the fish got away; I te karuanga o te taura, kua uuti tetai tua tangata i ta ratou ope. When the rope sagged, the other side heaved on their end; No te karu i te kupenga, kua rere te ika na runga. Because of the sag in the net, the fish leaped out over. (See karukaru.) [Pn. *kalu.]
