The All Black Sevens have ended a two-year world series tournament victory drought earlier than expected with a comprehensive 38-14 win over Argentina in Cape Town.
Ahead 14-7 at half-time, the Kiwis ran in four second-half tries to seal the win.
Joe Ravouvou scored a try in each half, with Vilimoni Koroi, Tim Mikkelson and Regan Ware also crossing before Sione Molia wrapped up proceedings deep into added time.
The New Zealanders, who lost to South Africa in last week's Dubai final, had gone 15 world series tournaments without a win, their last one coming in Vancouver in 2016.
It's their first win under new coach Clark Laidlaw, and puts them top of the 10-tournament ladder, two points clear of last year's series winners South Africa.
Laidlaw says the group took a lot of confidence out of their performance in Dubai, which had carried through to Cape Town.
"The team has been working hard and hoping to do well, but it probably happened sooner than we thought - to get a final and then a win is bloody pleasing," he said.
The All Blacks Sevens still struggled for consistency, but recovered well from their opening 22-0 pool loss to the United States.
They went on to beat Spain 50-0 and Australia 35-12 in their remaining pool matches, then edged England 17-12 in the quarter-finals to set up a semi-final clash against tournament hosts South Africa.
Trailing 7-12 at half-time, the New Zealanders hit the front with tries to Koroi and Joe Webber then kept the Blitzboks scoreless to seal a 19-12 win.
Kiwi skipper Scott Curry said it had been a hugely satisfying performance over both days.
"I'm just over the moon really," he said.
"It could have gone either way after we lost the first game against USA, and for the boys to bounce back and play like we did for the rest of the weekend, I'm massively proud.
"Day two's another day, and we talked about starting fresh and really working for each other, and that's what won us those three games today."
The next tournament is in Sydney at the end of January, a week ahead of the New Zealand leg of the series, to be staged in Hamilton for the first time.
