    Default query about mask straps

    It's been a couple of years since I fenced and I'm curious about the clip-on mask straps that now seem to be used at FIE level, around the back of the neck.

    As far as I can tell, these extra straps are an FIE requirement if you have an LP disc-and-elastic-strap mask fastening (but you don't need one if you have a metal-tongue-plus-separate-elastic-strap mask).

    Have I got that right, and has this requirement filtered down to UK opens (or even clubs) yet?

    You are correct, not filtered down for Opens or club use.

    However please see - http://www.britishfencing.com/news/latest-news/?n=1760 which BF announced in July after mask issue at the Cadet/Junior Nationals..
