    Let's have a great stupid argument!

    So, do you people with the Epee and Foil just hate that Saber fencers are cooler than you. Really, we are the bad boys of rock compared to your "quaint" blade. You guys think your blades take so much skill when really you can just admit you are scared of a blade that lets you cut with more than the tip. Who is up? Weigh in. Any comebacks? Thought not. Foils, Epee, HA!

    I'm happy you like sabre so much. Here's a picture of me freaking out.

    The solution to your problem is to fence another weapon.

    How can we foilists (or epeeists) respect a weapon with a 3 foot margin of error. I could probably move forward and swing with my eyes closed and hit something... Ohhhh that's exciting and skillful....

    I would respond, but foilists don't feed trolls.

    yeah, right..like running at each other and yelling and screaming takes more skill that foil or epee. you guys don't know how to parry; if you get a parry-riposte its probably an accident. and to make it all even worse your equipment is more expensive.

    You could hit something, but I guarantee you couldn't hit me....

    Why sabre? Because you don't take heads with the point.

    So you saberists are running wily nily up and down the piste with your
    s-2000 spanking stick, I've got my epee, extended, one more inch and your bleeding you pansy. And then theres foil, which is like two little kids playing tag with fly swatters. Epee is the only true fencing, cause we dont have ROW... I aint gonna be thinking about ROW in a real sword fight, i'm gonna be thinking about nailing every artery in his stupid wrist.

    Sabre is for people with no blade control

    Epee is for people to dumb to comprehend ROW

    Foil is for fencers.

    Sabre is for handsome, athletic, all-around nice people.

    Epee is for people who are half-human, half-tree (rooted to the floot).

    Foil is for neurasthenic whiners.

    I don't count "burns" from anyone who doesn't know the difference between "you're" and "your."

    Sabre and epee... HAH!!!

    Seriously, foil is the only true weapon.

    I respect the other 2 weapons of course... wait forget I said that, Epeeists and Sabreurs are just asking to be bagged out

    But honestly, I have no problem with TRUE epeeists and sabreurs, the kind that has a true passion for his/her weapon. However I can't stand people who completely suck at one weapon (lets say foil) then move on to something else like sabre only to find out they suck just as much as the did with a foil... But instead of changing to the third weapon, they constantly blame their equipment for losing

    foil is best, sabre is pretty darn good, but epee is just freaking boring and stupid. Instead of epee they should call it sit-and-poke!!!

    Really, Epee aside, foil is a bit "sissy". Compare the personalities of the people that tend to be behind the blades. Are you foil folks not a bit a bit tired of the weggies?!
