Electric equipment. Once you’re ready to own your own electric equipment, there are a couplepieces that you’re going to need. One of them we already talked about. That is the Lame.
This happens to be an electric epee. You can see at the top there’s a button that is depressed when a score is touched–when a touch is scored–when targetarea is touched. And also in the back you have this place in which you will plug thisso that you will be all hooked up and ready to score accurately and electronically. So,the electric epees and foils are a little more expensive than the dry ones. That’s onereason I suggest that you begin with a dry weapon, a non-electric weapon, also becauseblades do break. You want to practice with a dry weapon when you’re not practicing for Step 1: Measure your space Identify the space in the room where you intend your piece to sit. Using paint… the purpose of practicing electric.
One of these will run you about a hundred to twohundred dollars. It’s pretty much the same between foils and epees. And, of course, youcan spend a little bit more on the higher end if you would like to. So those are the primary electric pieces. You do need other pieces while you’re fencing. These are theones that are specifically electric.
