    I think this depends on the individual fencer.



    Could have been an "off-day" in Basel, alternatively it could demonstrate the random nature of epee!

    Agreed (as you will appreciate from my posts in other threads). Could we perhaps turn the "senior selections clock" back - at least in ME (I cannot speak for other weapons) - as to how things were...

    I do not disagree with this kind of idea. However it would need to be adopted and advised to everyone well in advance in order for decent season planning to be possible.

    Bring back ranking points for non-FIE foreign competitions! It's going to be ever harder to find 6 domestic competitions with a decent NIF and many of the Satellites are a real pain to get to.

    I think you are right and I think it is the senior fencers who are being disenfranchised by the attempts to "professionalise" the sport. Time was when a Top 20 ranking gave a senior the prospect of...

    I am not sure that a 50 entry fee for a well-run Nationals is a deterrent. I suspect the "killer" is the two day format which means any fencer not based in London is looking at 2/3 nights...

    I can't claim to know everyone in the 17-32 ranking but my estimate is that around 50% are vets. Still very impressive however.

    For clarity do you mean those not making it to the last 16? Do I sense irony here?

    Given the diminishing number of domestic events and entries to those events perhaps a good start would be to readmit points earned from foreign domestic competitions? Hell, go one step further and...

    Given the decline of the Open circuit perhaps the rankings should be calculated on the basis of a lesser number of events

    Pedant that I am it could do with some serious spell checking/proof reading. "Oympian" appears twice for example.
