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.
So just to see what would happen I decided to see if I could order a russian grip epee on The Fencing Post and the Fence Smart Website.
Nope. They had lots of drop downs but none for what kind of grip I wanted . I'm not clicking on add to cart if it isn't exactly what I want so no orders for them.
Online ordering is now my pet peeve.
