2015-06-18 19:03 - Urgent Equipment update Leon Paul Epee Blades, body wires
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZFurther clarification has been received regarding the FIE directive,relating to  2013 - 2015 Leon Paul epee blades type SR-1 with the V-profile.

These blades are not to be used in any fencing activity, effective immediately, until further notice. FeNZ has been advised that the blades may split, creating a high injury risk. This follows an incident recently.

The CFF Technical Commission has decided, in the best interest and for the safety of all our competitors, to follow suit and also disallow their use at the forthcoming CFF Junior-Cadet Championships in Cape Town, South Africa. Therefore be advised that no weapon bearing these blades will be accepted at weapon check.

Australia has also advised that these blades cannot be used.

BF blades supplied by Leon Paul are not affected.

Bayonet body wires. The issue of concern relating to this type of body wire is a technical one relating to wireless system use and is a technical issue only, not a safety issue.

Bayonet body wires can be used at Cape Town as wireless systems will not be used at this event.

Bayonet body wires can continue to be used in New Zealand, but any fencer competing overseas should be aware of the ruling, particularly for FIE competitions.
