As far as I'm aware the jacket at least is pretty good, I know someone who wears one and he seems pleased, they look nice too!

The only person i know who uses the Duellist kit is real happy with it. The after sales care is good aswell, they had a bit of damage to it and duellist were quite happy to repair it. The only thing that they did pick up on was the seams were tyhe wrong way round. So there was a rodge running down the leg and arm that a point could get stuck on . Apart from that i've not heard of any problems with it,

Duellist kit is good, they do a membership scheme, if you pay an annual subsription you get a big discount. Worth looking at if you need a bit of kit in one go. Their masks are excellent, much better than any of the competition, and cheaper too !

Their starter kit is the best value for money, they give a good jacket not a basic back zip thing !:)

Yes I've got one of those, or something very similar from Duellist. No problems with the jacket, has been fine for me.

My sabre lame has had it though, lasted just over a year from there. Lesson to you all, dont economise on lames! :(

The duellist starter kit for some strange reasons comes without a plastron. Basic 350 N Duelist plastron is 28. Fencing without a plastron is contary to British Fencing regulations, prehaps the Duellist starter Kit kit is for non contact fencing? Once you add the cost of a plastron the price is the same as the Leon Paul K1. This comes with a back zip extra padded jacket, this padding is much appreciated by beginners, especially young fencers. If a fencer wants a front zip jacket he can always choice a K2 for an extra 18, which comes with the 350 Club Jacket and a F100 mask. Barry Paul

Duellist kit is very good, masks, clothing, weapons etc. Friendly service, The jackets etc wash and dry well (reports from parents of fencers in my club say better than other kit). They have had a problem with supplies but believe this is now sorted out. I will always go for Duellist!
