Are there any fencing shops as such in the south west? Hear there was one in Plymouth but where? Buying over the net is ok but... i'm more of a hands on kinda person...like to see what i'm gonna buy.Discount for cash guv?:)
Also, need new electric sabre kit (turkey foil) any recommendations?

Discount for cash, you'll be lucky. Sounds like a dodgy bloke with stuff out the back of a van.

LP stand at the Welsh open I think.

I don't know of any fencing shops in the South West. You could try Neil Brown who has the odd bit of kit from time to time. He nornally coaches in the south west e.g. Bristol, Taunton, etc.

you usually have to go into London, but this weekend is the Sussex Open at Portslade sports centre.

Does anyone know who (if anyone) is running a stall/armoury there?

The form sent out with directions to Portslade says Leon Paul are going to be there, I think.

Best way to get cash discount is to make a big order, pull out a big roll of notes and say "discount for cash?" if they say no then write them a cheque. chances are that next time they wont say no :tongue: this works especially well when getting your car fixed.

So do fencing equipment establishments work the same way as your local car geezer then? ;)

Doesnt hurt to find out. Cos it can always be booked down as a special order that was never paid for ;)
