At Loudoun Fencing, we realize that everyone has their own favorites when it comes to fencing equipment. In an effort to make your shopping process a little bit easier, we've provided a helpful database of high-quality fencing gear designed to suit entry level competitive fencers.
If you buy a starter package, please make sure it includes two electric weapons (not practice ones), two body cords, and a mask suitable for competition. The description of the mask should state that it is suitable for tournaments or mention that it is a 350N or 800N.
These are items you must have in order to compete in tournaments:
* If you prefer to start slowly with equipment purchasing, we recommend starting with a mask and glove. ** We suggest speaking to your coach before purchasing an epee. However, this is the least expensive option, which we recommend in a #5 blade size for fencers 11 or over, and a #2 for younger athletes. *** This is a mid-priced alternative to the least expensive option.
