Good quality sabre?

Good quality sabre?

        I have been fencing with a club for several years now, and have finally
decided that I would like a decently-priced, good quality, dry sabre for
fencing. Generally I order my stuff from TCA, although that can always change.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to what would be good?

Depends on what -you- like in a Sabre.  I prefer Hungarian guards, Hostin
Gold blades, All-Star *** grip (even though they break), and a heavier
pommel than standard.  This fits my very fast, stopcut and apris de faire
type game.  

My coach, however, would be perfectly happy with a broomstick mounted on
any bellguard.

Figure out what you like by swapping parts around, and experimenting with
different angles when*** the blade.
