    Man my back is finally better and am coming back to fence. yay me!!!

    But i suspect I may need things since rules have changed.

    what do i need?

    I fenced briefly a year and a half ago, but not sure if i have the correct gear.

    Presuming you had all the gear you needed for competition a year and a half ago, the only new thing you'd need gear wise is a chest plate with the foam padding if you're a female (or a male who uses one).

    If you had a foil mask with the lame on the lower half of the bib, you should be ok.

    Depending on where you're gonna be fencing you might need to have a mask with new back strap (which can be retrofitted).

    The obvious, everything must be in working order. It wouldn't hurt to check all of your cords and weapons.
