Someone in Vega found a new type of shinai a few weeks ago. Unfortunately it is technically illegal by the manual of combat since it only has 3 slats. How soon could we get it into "testing" so that it can be used in events?
They run $20 from amazon. These are flat and look more like a sword than a standard shinai. They have clearly defined cutting edges and clearly defined flat sides so that should reduce some of the ambiguity from the normal shinais. Since they are flat I'm guessing they are fairly easy to attach a quillion to.
