The Impact Sword is designed for durable, long-term use with soft-kit or hard kit practice. The sword weighs in at 1.5 pounds and has similar behavior characteristics as a steel sword you would use in Singles combat. The Impact Sword is safe for use with only helmets and guantlets worn. You may use padded gloves (such as hockey gloves) in place of guantlets during practice. The Impact Sword is tough enough for full-power hits against helmets and armor.
The Impact line of equipment gives you the feel and punishment of live-steel fighting without the risk of injury or the fatigue of full-kit training. It's an excellent tool for working on technique, timing, and getting in-helmet experience.
