So I have a pistol grip epee and I’m pretty sure it’s a small size. But I was talking with a teammate and he was using a Zivkovic grip and he let me hold it and holy crap was it comfortable. Much more so than mine (which is just a standard Absolute Visconti non insulated grip). So I’m thinking of buying one. Anyone who’s used them, pros and cons?
I’m also in the market for a french grip since I want to experiment with that again (I’ve always used pistol grips). I’m most likely getting this one but if you have anything to add, go ahead.
Oh, hey, did I ever post this? It’s me being shitty at my sport.
I mean it’s me in my first DE at Charm City in December.
Despite my lackluster DE, I’m really proud of Charm City. I helped! We set everything up and took everything down in record time and we had tons of people from UMBC sign up! AND I WASN’T THE ONLY GIRL FROM THE CLUB TO COMPETE. There were four! Seriously, past two years I was the only girl to do USFA at all.

High scool fencing NJ rankings
NJ does not…/i thought NY was popular….
Is NJ this popular for fencing?
Yes. And then they come down to Maryland to try and get easier ratings because our tournaments are smaller…
