Are you subscribed to the Rapier net?? I was still on it when all the
stuff came down on the accident.....
all the sudden lots of fencers were talking about how the TCA *foils*
were wearing out much faster than most other types of foils, on personal
experience I have one friend who is very upset that her blade broke after
2 months of intermitent fighting (about once every two weeks!!) another
TCA foil that kinked on the first use... Another, who is using a lames
from TCA, is very happy with it, so if one goes with TCA I would recomend
the lames blades...
