    One of the competitors at the competition I was at yesterday had rainbow bell guards for his epees. Anyone else ever see these or know where to get them?

    Not very pretty.

    Can we get a sabre version for Inq?

    Is the object to distract your opponent? Cause that might actually work with that guard.

    I think they look cool.
    I want some.
    Unfortunately bell guards virtually never need to be replaced :(

    Fence people who attack the hand through your bell guard.

    If you like I could probably set you up to fence the guy who did that to one of my guards... :)

    Fencing. Opponent attacked, I went to parry, that was the result of his blade striking my guard. wasn't even a particularly hard hit, either.

    But you know how I am with physics, so probably it never happened, 'cause it couldn't, 'cause formulas and equations. ;)

    glad that was a decent parry then... I'd have hated to see the picture if you hadn't parried as well and he hit your hand instead.
