I've noticed that the LP web page for their maraging FIE épée blades states that one can specify the flexibility/stiffness of the blade. However, they offer no information on how the stiffness is specified, what range of stiffness is available, or how the available range of FIE blades would compare with their standard épée blades. I've been unable to find this information by searching the forum either. So I wrote a note to [email protected] asking these questions, and got back an annoying non-answer, in which they simply said that I could specify my needs in the comments field when ordering, but included no information at all. Can anyone tell me about these blades and the specifics about the stiffness issue, since the Leon Paul sales organization won't?
