    Has anyone used the plastic semi electric foils I've seen on other
    sites? Are they useful or just a gimmick? Are masks recommended? How
    safe are they, as in will they break? Do they act enough like a real
    foil to be useful?

    I can't get a response from Zitkovic.
    Thanks,
    RSE

    If you like to see out of your eyes, you'll wear a mask.

    Last year at a highschool tournament I saw some kids fooling around
    (a.k.a. practicing) with them. They are as whippy as hell and very
    light weight. You'd really have to try hard to hurt someone with
    them, but you still wear a mask. No sense in setting a bad example.

    These are intended mainly for smaller kids, 4-8 years, as they are so light
    weight, and flexible, but they CAN be broken if abused by older, stronger
    kids/teenagers.
    (the last ime I checked...)
    Zivkovic sold these with small lightweight helmet/masks of his own design;
    he might sell them individually, as well, but I beleive he is getting them from

    carmimari fencing equipment manufacturer in Italy; they're about 30 EU
    www.carmimari.com

    (but I think it's only in italian...)
