The sport of Fencing requires quite a lot of equipment, actually. If you are simply a beginner fencer, you shouldn't need more than what fencers call "dry" equipment, meaning, a jacket, mask, glove, and weapon. None of these need be conductive, as you should not be fencing while hooked up to a scoring machine just yet. Should you consider competitive fencing, you will need more. If you are fencing epee, all you will need is a cord and an epee that can be hooked up to this cord. If you are fencing foil, you will need a foil vest and a cord, both of which must be conductive. Your foil must also be able to connect with your cord. If you are fencing sabre, you will need the most equipment. Your mask must be conductive. You must have a conductive lame, a conductive cuff, (it goes around your wrist) a blade that can connect to the body cord that you will need, and a mask cord that will connect your mask to your sabre. It is also highly recommended that, if you are fencing competitively, you will need at least two weapons, especially in epee, where they can break quite easily. Another suggested tip is that you learn how to fix your own equipment when it breaks. (believe me, it will)
