    Hello,
    I'm sure this question has been asked and asked again several times on this forum, but I didn't find the answer :

    Do you know if Allstar fencing delivers only in Germany or somewhere else ? Because when I want to fill the blank "country", it only tells me "Germany", so...

    IIRC, Allstar has regional contracts and they aren't allowed to ship into the territory of another contract.

    So if you want Allstar equipment, you have to find your local distributer.

    Hi,

    Thank you, I didn't know for this story of contract. It's sad because they're a lot cheaper than the others. Thanks.

    Or, you buy from FSL and have it shipped over.

    Are they really trustable ? Their website look to be an hoax.

    Yes. They've been in business for at least 20 years, I've ordered from them many times, as have many others I know.
    There's a significant minimum shipping charge to the US (57 Euros now, per their website), so you do need to have a large enough order to make it worthwhile. Group orders for a club or team are a common approach.

    So far as I know, the only thing you can direct order from Allstar to the US is the Race Gold Line foil blades. Otherwise you'll be re-directed to one of their retail partners like allstarfencing.usa, which is a low-effort drop-ship outfit that ships from Scotland, or one of the more well-known vendors like Blue Gauntlet, The Fencing Post, etc.

    FSL is very reliable. If you don't see something on their website you can email them in english and they will give you direction.
