The clash could have been extended a bit, that's true
Nami's never been in an environment to know Haki, and she dosen't have DF powers, like Ussopp told her before the time skip, those are the 2 most vunerable members of the SH's with no expectation of a great power boost, or hax, they survive off of their intelligence, wit, and knowledge. I'm glad everybody's not boosted, though I'm in the minority Ussopp and the freaking slingshot has worn out its welcome in my book.
At least the author was smart enough to enhance the capabilities with plants from that crazy island he trained on, and in the beginning, slingshot, for his character made sense. Now they're on the second half of the Grand Line, the enemies are retarded strong, and though everybody dosen't have to have the same weapons, I don't think anyone else in the One Piece Universe has been seen with one, its soon gonna be time for Ussopp to switch to guns even though a lot don't want him to be like his Dad specifically, but he's a sharpshooter. He needs a freaking gun in his hand, heck BB carries and I'm not thinking he's the best of shots, he relies too much on his DF, that will be his demise... watch.
I understand everyone dosen't have to have a 'smart' weapon, like the Dude from Ussopps island with the Cat Claws, but his tech not so far off of Wolverines, can't really hate on that much, except for the Stupid Cat Footwork. Tha slingshot though, ugh, its very near time for its end.
