I did ok at the open on Saturday. I came two touches from getting the C rating I was after losing to an A epeeist 15-13.
Sunday's tournament I top seeded and won all the bouts except the final which I lost to Mike Williams about 15-8.
Not too bad, it was a pretty good showing for me I thought overall. I think the overall sense of what I get out of it is that my training is working for me and I'm getting stronger as an epeeist.
I found out from Dale
I got the blue gauntlet epees I ordered. I didn't like that they chopped the russian grips to balance em. I like the longer grip. But I had some extras of the right length around.
I got a surprise package from Triplette. A return package for the blades they sent me and two pistol grip epees. One was russian, the other was another type of grip. NOt sure the style it looked a bit like belgian but longer.
The wiring on it was done poorly at the base part where the
Well blue gauntlet fixed up their page so I could order properly. Should have some nice russian grip epees in.
Triplette hasn't said anything about my order mixup other than an email saying I should already have everything.
I guess they'll do whatever. I slapped the blades on some epees so I'm not sending em back. 176 is pretty steep for two non fie wired blades though.
Physical chess is fixing their page so they'll have the right handed grips up so
I decided to see if I could buy a russian grip epee on fencing net's store.
No option to order one.
I never realized it had gotten that hard to order the type of sword I like before this.
Maybe I should just order viscontis and buy the grips in bulk somewhere else or something.
Did everyone get pissed at the russians and decide to stop stocking their grips?
I ran into the same problem with the Alliance Fencing equipment web page. Lots of options to click but not one for the grip. For a fencer selecting the right grip is really important. I guess we're supposed to just 'order an epee' and hope its the right grip.
So, no orders placed with them.
