Nice Gras in the picture.
Are those the same sort of simulator you had at Fightcamp, where the metal "blade" was fixed in the stock resulting in rather a firm thrust?

Many thanks.
I thought that they represented the weight well, but they would probably be difficult to use in my salle as most people don't have much in the way of protection and I couldn't trust some of them not to thrust too hard.
Have you had any thoughts on possible means of reducing the impact of the thrust?

The ones we've got at the moment aren't ideal, being a bit short. These are also stiff but I've taped a rubber squash ball on the end:

Weren't period simulators endowed with spring-mounted rod ?
