    I have been foil fencing for almost 4 years. The style that I’ve developed is a very aggressive one. Earlier today I was going through the Leon Paul website when it hit me that I had no idea what type of blade best suited my style. I was curious if anyone knew what foil gear would best suit an aggressive style (forceful beats and parries, charging in quickly, etc.). It would be very useful information to me and anyone else who happens to stumble upon this. So, please, if anyone knows enough about foil weapons, your input would be a big help to improve my game. Thanks!

    If you're finishing aggressively as well, then Viniti would support your forceful beats and touches. N.B. That will also allow an adept opponent to evade you with tight disengages and counter-attacks.
