Has any one had a problem with LP epee's arriving with kinks in them? Just i bought a new one and it arrived with a kink that makes it have a tendancy to bend upwards, have sorted out with a LOT of bending, just wondered wether it was a common problem?

Getting blades/weapons posted to you does mean that you get what you are sent which may mean you get a dud one..

From experience if a blade at new tends to bend the wrong way, every time you get a solid hit it will tend to try to bend that way again... This is something I have found with all blades from all suppliers...

I guess metal has a kind of memory and tends to go back to how it starts, problem is an upward bend is not what you really want. (any metal experts out there??)

Generally getting seeing a blade B4 you buy is the best option, though not always practical...

I've had it in the past with blades, from all suppliers. From experience they'll change it if you're not happy.
