Equipment

23 Sep

Bought my first electrical foil and body cord last week. Ran me about $110. Got a lame a few months back for around $80, and my tunic, glove, mask, and practice foil set me back around $200 a year ago. So this hobby of mine has already cost me close to $400, and that’s not counting the instructional fees.

This makes me appreciate the dedication that fencing schools, especially the smaller ones, have to have for the sport. They must have to invest thousands in equipment, and hundreds of hours laundering tunics, mending gloves, repairing foils.
