***********************IMPORTANT NOTE************************* The Conductive Bib is now Required at all USFA events!!! In the 2011-2012 season, the USFA began to transition to the conductive bib format for foilists. As of August 1, 2012 the ruling now expands to cover every foil tournament that is USFA sanctioned and held to USFA rules. All Sanctioned Saber tournaments now also require the 800N Fie saber gloves. Please be prepared with the proper equipment, a vendor will be available. All foil fencers using chest protectors must have the newly required padded area attached to the standard chest protectors. Uncovered chest protectors will not be allowed in any foil events.
