    He's still young enough to switch to saber, realize what a horrible mistake he made, come back to foil, and still be competitive.

    And when he is fully grown and mentally mature he will decide on epee. I'm ducking now..........

    Or, if he's a real wisenheimer, he'll switch to epee AND start following Inq around at tournaments wearing garishly colored socks because he gets a kick out of seeing Inq's reaction.

    It's been done. Hasn't proved gratifying from what I've heard. ;)

    Merely carrying an epee should suffice.

    Go for it. My son was in the same situation. He switched from foil to sabre and now fences in college.

    Sabre is fun...make the switch if he's not enjoying foil!
