Phew contentiuos issue!

Seriously though, shop around and see what you think looks the best for you. Ask other fencers at your club and take in opinions. I don't promote one brand over another myself - I suppose I try to remain impartial for these boards.

If you are only a beginner then don't buy anything labelled 'FIE 800N' there is no need, at present, for you to splash out any more than you have to.
