Re: Leon Paul

Really cool you can buy a complete gear set together and save some! It is. If they hadn't chickened out with the gloves, this would be a real one stop shop winner. The full kit bundle is a wonderful idea! Well that's something a competitor could one up them with! ;) Edit: They would do better to in...

Re: Leon Paul

Many Americans used European sources as well,...

Re: Upgrading Your Kit

Thanks for the feedback guys! Ultimately the goal in some Easton Sabers for steel. I really like the Red Dragon gloves based on Matt Easton's review. Kevin, thanks, but I'm not so worried about color as I don't see myself doing classical beyond fencing with those in the group who are interested, ass...
