The most popular style of pistol grip in France but cast from magnesium making it 30% lighter than a standard aluminium handle. It gives amazing control between the thumb and fingers and strong stability against the wrist. Perfect for a competitive Foil or Epee fencer.
We all know that a lighter weapon is faster and speed is everything on piste.
Leon Paul are all about developing groundbreaking products to help give you the edge on piste. The Mag-Tec pistol grip is a groundbreaking product and a world first in fencing. This grip is high pressure cast from Magnesium rather than the usual aluminium making it 30% lighter and just as strong. Combined with other lightweight parts these incremental weight reductions create a staggering difference to the overall weight and agility of your weapon.
Weight – 62g.
The weight savings apply to Foil as well as Epee but to use an example an Epee made with all standard parts and a traditional blade weighs in at 454g whereas a weapon made using the Mag-Tec handle weighs just 357g a reduction of 21% when included with our other lightweight components. When combined with our lightweight titanium Epee point the balance point of the weapon stays the same despite the overall reduction in weight.
