    Firstly we have a right mishmash of blade lengths, timings of bouts and scores to fight to between U10 and U14.

    In my opinion it needs to be simplified.

    Full length blades should start at U15...

    I wouldn't call bayonet fittings innovations, they have been around as long as I have been fencing and that is 32 years. And I'm sure it is longer than that.

    OK, I'll bite. Fonesto - what one earth are you on about? Has it got anything to do this this topic. Especially as you are not in the UK and you write as if English is not your first language.
