    That would explain why I never got an email response when I asked them about some test gear...either in English or poorly translated French.

    Any idea when that holiday's over and who bought them??

    The FWF Xtra thick barrels really minimize the smashed screw issue....hence why they're my default German point when I sell a weapon. They also resist jamming when dented.

    Altering the fit is fine, so long as they still fasten below the knee. Just advise whoever does the job of the kind of material (akin to kevlar) so they can use the correct machine and needle.

    The picture wouldn't load for me, but it looks like a small hole in the material.

    You can try to just sew it shut, unless it's too big to easily do so.

    I was actually surprised...as communication with the membership has NOT been one of USA Fencing's strong suits in recent years.

    At US domestic events, weight and shim testing is done before EVERY bout...from the first one in pool to the gold medal.
