    Agreed.
    Out of interest, do you know if anyone ever has had a black card for this? If they have, it must have been quite a throw

    Just read the spec and it doesn't seem to be the lightest. So how is it so much better?

    Fair enough.
    On that note, I tried somebody's SR71 blade this week and the difference was amazing. Much lighter and, consequently, more manoeuvrable for an ageing weakling like me. Incredible...

    Out of narrow, personal interest, how DO you defeat an epeeist who is a foot taller than you are?

    I like the way the quote italicized the Chinese characters. I wonder if that's an option in Mandarin?
