"Having completed the analysis of Leon Paul SR-71 Epee blades, those with dates marked 08.2012 to 06.2015 will no longer be accepted at FIE events.
Having completed the analysis of Leon Paul V Epee blades, any 08.2012 to 06.2015 blades without a serial number are suspended at FIE events."
Please note the following implications for all FV events:
1) SR-71s have had the date range of the suspect blades widened and those within that new range are BANNED.
2) All maraging LP V blades (cat # E10MLP) are fine - EXCEPT those manufactured within this date range, and WITHOUT a serial number. THESE BLADES ARE BANNED. Those WITH a serial number (but not model SR-71) are legal.
Referees at all FV epee events (and at all levels i.e. age group, Schools League, Novice, B grade, Veteran & Open) will be instructed to check any epee blades on piste and prevent the use of the prohibited blades.
