Just a quick update on FWF Blade wires I just received a fairly large amount (count) of both epee and foil blade wires from FWF for Summer Nationals and noticed that they changed the coloring of the insulation. Click here for image This link is on our web site, its safe. Sorry about my finger nails, been working We have all seen the milky blue and milky red ones. We have also seen the super dark blue ones as well, now, they have this new type of neon blue coloring. I did notice that the outer skin does feel different than the milky blue ones. Note: you can ask if I have tried wiring a blade with one yet or not, but the answer right now as I am writing this, I have not. Knowing the super high quality standards of FWF, there will/should be no issue, but thought I would pass this information along since my first perception was: Are these from China? They are not. So, if you order these blade wires from us, or see them in the blades going forward, they really are from FWF.
