Question for Barry @ Leon Paul,

Is this the same type of pistes they were using at the Slough Open? It was quite comfortable to fence on, not slippery at all, and was grounded. If this is the same piste, it's considerably cheaper than any metallic pistes and I would think in the price range of a lot of clubs. Also, how durable are they? Would one missed epee toe touch put a hole in it?

Cheers,
Epeecurean

I believe that these are standard rubber pistes.

These are a new product being tested, they are not the same as the ordinary rubber pistes referred to in the first post.

So the Slough Open pistes were prototypes then? Who is developing them? They felt great to fence on -- very good grip and no buckling.

I recall some rubber pistes at Birmingham last year - very light to carry, as epeecurean says, no buckling. Haven't seen any since.

The ones at Slough were the same ones which were used at Birmingham, and at the London Open Epee (Miller Hallet). They are yet another Leon Paul development.

why are you people referring this product as a rubber piste when the first sentence of the product descriptionis:
Piste phosphor bronze 1.55 mtrs. x 18 mtrs(Reference P92)
These phosphor bronse pistes are made with unique plastic coated edges.
it is made of phosphor bronze, the rubber only goes on the edge; or has LP changed its description since you first read that?

No at the top of the page is the bronze piste Ref P92 but if you scroll down you'll find the rubber piste we are talking about Ref P80

Hi PK,

Keep in mind there are two pistes under discussion, the standard non-conductive rubber piste which is being sold now (Ref P80), and a new rubber piste being tested with conducts electricity and can be grounded. This one isn't being sold yet.
