New Weapon Safety

Recommended Posts

So I plan on bringing in a new spear at the May game and I was thinking about this one from Medieval Collectibles. https://www.medieval...larp-spear.aspx I was just wondering if this would pass inspection because I would like to know ahead of time before I spend a couple hundred bucks just for a weapon to fail.

It looks like the grip surface has too little padding to pass. That is unless the core is very thin. This leads to another potential issue.

 

It also describes the core as being "flexible". If a weapon has too much flex we have another name for that: whippy.

 

If anyone has seen one of these before, please chime in. Off the cuff I think it's doubtful that this thing will pass at best.

What prompted the change? Your current spear looks good. Better than the new one in my opinion. If the old one still passes C&S I don't see why you'd want to spend... wow $170 on one that may not.

It looks like a Forgotten Dreams spear. They've been hit and miss in this game for safety. You could get it, but it's a gamble. Most of it comes down to how whippy it is. If that's ALL grip, like their other ones, however, it will not have enough courtesy padding to pass inspection.

It's not the size of it that counts, it's how you use it. (Yes, I went there!)

Well I was planning on getting this as a back up spear and was planning on using it at other larps. Probably not going to get it. Oh and bigger usually compensates for something that is usually lacked.

Sometimes you get tired of playing with the same spear day in and day out, and you just want to go out and find a new spear to fiddle around with.
