1. Is Live Spot legal in USFA and FIE events?
Yes! When applied properly, Live Spot sits flush with the lame surface. There are no pockets or edges that can potentially catch a point. Currently, sewed on lame patches are legal in USFA and FIE events; such patches have a clear tactile edge while Live Spot does not. The resistance is also well within the legal limits of 5 ohms. Live Spot does not break any USFA or FIE law.
2. Who is Live Spot for?
Foil and saber fencers who develop a dead spot on their lame/bib and are in need of a quick fix. Club owners who have several lames that require repairing. Anyone who has a lame to repair, but don’t want to buy an expensive new one or spend the time and energy to sew on a patch.
3. How long will Live Spot last on a lame?
