Actually, the way I heard it was that the foil in question had already been 
disallowed for competition, and the gentle in question didn't realize that the 
marshals meant *at all*, and not just for tournament play, and used it in 
practice.  AFAIK, nobody's ever had a problem with a TCA foil if it was good to 
start with.  But that last is simply hearsay on my part.  Nikolai, any 
documented problems with fresh-off-the shelf stuff?
