View Full Version : Which blades are flexible, which are stiff, what's the diff?

I would like to buy one of those yellow maraging blades which are said to be flexible hi quality metal which lasts considerablely longer than others. This for safety and economics! Yet some say the inexpensive PBT blades are durable, and some that they are stiff, how so I ask? What brands and types can you share with us, explaining the benefits and weaknesses of such equipment? Where do you get them?


PS you can check them in the equipment reviews section under "sabreurs"!

A blade is a very personal thing, I just swapped to a LM sabre blade from PBT and so far have not been vastly impressed. However I have yet to put a set on the blade so that could explain some things.

The best I can suggest is that you visit opens and shops to feel the blades for yourself, because the proof of the pudding is in the throwing it at your opponent :)
