    Hey guys,

    Are there any FIE requirements for epee gloves? Can only find sabre gloves regulations on the FIE webpage.

    Thanks,
    Dinis

    The applicable rule for gloves is m.25.6
    There are no special requirements for gloves for epee.

    KD5MDK's comments is accurate. However, section m.25.2 of the rule book is about the "safety" of your uniform which includes the glove. All gloves must not have any holes whether from use or design.

    I was one of the armorers at last week's RYC tournament in Northern California and we found several gloves that still had the hole in the bottom of the palm for the body cord. We had several parents sewing close these holes at the last minute. One of the gloves was brand new.

    So, if you're in the market for a new glove, get the right one.
