We are looking at changing the "Approved Blades List" into simpler criteria with minimum standards, with a high emphasis on the flexibility of the blade.
To validate the plan, we need to gather as much data as possible on the blades currently being used in the SCA for both Heavy Rapier and Cut & Thrust, as well as blades we don't allow, but which might be usable in the SCA. An online survey form has been posted here:
You'll need a 3-oz weight and a 6-oz weight to do the survey. It closes on November 7th.
Please participate, and spread the word.
