Polling results of "Quality Epee Blades?"

Thank you to all the respondents to the "Quality
Epee Blades?" post.  The general consensus is that:

(1) The new Leon Paul blades sound funny and are floppy,
    but if you like floopy blades they're pretty good.

(2) No one had anything bad to say about Hostin Plus
    blades other than that they cost too much.  They are
    very stiff, and have a reasonable lifespan.

(3) The regular France-lame blades are not very good, but
    the FIE blades are really nice.

(4) Russian FIE blades are not nearly as well finished as the
    France-lame blades.

I find it interesting, that no one mentioned Prieur's blades.
I guess that since the prices of Prieur's products skyrocketed
in the last 10 years, no one uses Pieur blades anymore.

Happy trails,
