URGENT FIE TECHNICAL BULLETIN – JUNIOR-CADET COMMONWEALTH CHAMPIONSHIPS
URGENT FIE TECHNICAL BULLETIN
Please note that, following the recent FIE decision to suspend the use of Leon Paul LP epee blades, type SR-1 with the V-profile, involved in a recent incident at an FIE event, 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.
This decision does not extend to the bayonet connection body wires, also subject of a ban by the FIE, as CFF competitions do not make use of wireless apparatus and the issue is not safety-related.
