Does anyone know of any fencing equipment stores in England?  I already
know about the Leon Paul store in London.

Also look out for _Gladiators_ - but don't buy your weapons there because
they're basically LP, but more expensive. They've got a nifty spool
replacement system, though...roll on club grant...

There are also several Leon Paul stores in England as this is where we
get all our team gear from. (Durham University)

Try Blades in Staines. They have good qaulity equipment at better
value than Paul's.
Whatever you do don't buy from Rome Fencing of Sussex.They do not
give satisfaction.
Sorry I havent got more accurate addresses but I'm a long way
from my diary.

Leon Paul Epee blades are second to none, they weigh about the same as a
foil blade!  If you are getting an epee get a Paul blade.

_Do not_ buy from Merlin either.

What have people's experiences of Rome fencing equipment been like?  They've been advertising in the
Sword for a few issues now, but I don't know anyone who's bought fom them.  What does "not give
satisfaction" mean?

The comment about Leon Paul epee blades is on the mark!  Their FIE blades
are truly the world's best, especially since the Scaroni forge & supplier
gave up the ghost.  Not only are they light & strong, parries don't slip
off them like off other blades (France Lames FIE, e.g., tho these are
good blades as well).  Their state-of-the-art metallurgy is truly refreshing.

Also Leon Paul body cords are far superior to any other make. Don't
accept any substitute like the Chinese bayonet clones (don't hold well in
socket & break circuit from time to time).  Paul body cords are far
easier to maintain & repair & don't break as readily as other Euro brands.

Just a colonial's 2 cents worth.
