Hi all, our daughter is an average-size 7 years old and has been learning foil for a couple months. Her coach recommends that we buy a foil with french grip for her to start with. However, we are not sure which brands and options to pick. Could someone help with the following questions? 1. Which brands are the best fit for kids in this age? We found that Absolute Fencing and Blue Gauntlet both have size 0 foils, but we are not sure which one is better and whether there are other brands. 2. French grip, foil guard, and foil pad each have a couple options: 2.1 French grip can be upgraded to leather. Is this a good option for young kids? Absolute Fencing also has a "AF Signature Series" option. Does anyone know whether it is a better fit than the "AF Leather" option? The link is: https://www.absolutefencinggear.com/shopping/product_info.php/products_id/174/cPath/24 2.2 Foil guard has a lot of variations (e.g., see the above link). We are just baffled by the amount of options. Should we just pick a light one (e.g., AF Aluminum Light) or a most expensive one (e.g., Vniti One-Piece Extra Strong)? 2.3 Foil pad also has a lot of variations (again, see the above link). The AF foil has Plastic, Heavy Felt, Leather, and Transparent. Does it make a real difference which option we pick? Any suggestions? Thank you so much for your help. Any input is greatly appreciated!
