    Good to hear.

    Folk were chatting about the new design at the Norfolk Open Épée, probably due to around 90% of fencers having contour fit masks. No issue about the additional safety, but more...

    It's really helpful to see the changes highlighted. For juniors it certainly clarifies the definition of a BSC, so not just U20 events but nominated senior events too. This was probably needed to...

    Does anyone have any feedback on how the new design has gone down at the Worlds? Interested to know what our top fencers internationally think before the mere mortals make the change.

    Thanks Steve. Whilst thats certainly a pain in the proverbial, the current BF message is that there will be no change to arrangements for our domestic events, where FIE kit is not required. So your...

    Having just looked at the Leon Paul website the Xchange mask is now being shipped with the contour fit plus system as standard, not just the adapted bib. Another positive step forward, particularly...

    I have to say I missed this on first reading, but picked up on it following the post by SMJ.

    If I read this right, the change has been made at the instigation of Leon Paul???? Or is this an...
  16. BF News Update

    BF have published a news item clarifying that there will be no immediate change to use of LP Contour masks for domestic events. However, clarity around Cadet Circuit events is now being sought:

    Many thanks to the moderators at Leon Paul for changing the title of my thread to remove the suggestion that contour masks might have been banned by the FIE. It is probably better to note that they...

    It does feel as if the impact of this FIE decision will be very much dependent on the next move. If the FIE believe that contour type masks are unsafe, and have indeed asked fencers at the Worlds to...

    So if I have got this right, the likes of the LP FIE Contour and in our case the Xchange are now illegal in FIE events.

    It will certainly be interesting to see how the safety requirement filters...

  22. Does the FIE rule update effect the use of contour fit masks?

    I have just had sight of an FIE communication dated 15th July 2014 that appears to be banning contour fit masks from all international competitions from September 2014. The wording reads:

    There is a phone number for Tony Rose, the club secretary, on the contacts page of the website, at the bottom. That might be a good start. I think he was the contact point for entries.
