        How about that cool "ringing" sound you get when you tag someone's
        bell guard?  Can't say I've ever heard it in foil or sabre.

Ah, yes, epee the musical weapon!

On the other hand, sabre lessons are very rythmic. The just leaves foil

Au contraire!  Ah, the delightful melody of foil still rings in my ears-
"Tik tik tik tik tik tik tik *pok* "What do you mean, `passe'?!!!"
