Re: Some weapon-related questions.

Hello there,

A couple of days ago someone asked in the Madrid forum, if it was allowed to put a ring of foam on the front end of the weapon. We've seen it in Germany and in Ireland, some 3 or 5 cm rings, and started to do it our selfs. The point is that he pretended to put a 20 cm ring, making something like a Shield on the front-end of the weapon. Me myself didn't find a good answer except that: I don't think that will be very safe even thou it is foam, since the most weight you put on the far end of a weapon the less control you have on it.

Have you got any issues on that topic in Germany? Can you bring some light to these poor pupils?
Thanks a lot
Grüß, Hashele.

Well, it seems that nobody here had this idea yet. If someone had built such a weapon, I'm shure we would have some rules about this.

In my very own opinion, a small ring of foam is ok, but with a maximum of approx. 5cm.

Some inofficial Jugger rules limit the diameter of any applications to a maximum of 15 cm.

Subtracting the diameter of the pompfe itself (smth between 5 and 10cm) leads to a maximum radius of any applications of about 2.5 to 5 cm. Thus, it's not possible to build a shield, but it is allowed to attach some rings to avoid for example the chain from sliding up the pompfe towards your hands.

Yep. When we first saw that in the videos, we didnt get the point of that, then someone copied it and we began to understand many things XD, it was some time later that this guy asked about making a bigger ring. However, and this is a thought of my own I dunno if anybody else in Spain has the same opinion, I only find useful the ones close to the grip since the ones on the far end make it harder to untie the Chain when it has got stuck and loose a lot of time that could be used in wiping the enemy line of pompfs. Yeap, it also makes it harder to untie the chain for the Kettenman (and therefor easier to hunt him) however I dont find that so usefull.

Thanks for the replies, that makes much sense.
Grüß, Hashele.

Thanks!

That is a tube, right?
I thought it needs to be a rod (i.e. no hole inside).
At least that's what the jugger-book at http://www.juggerblog.net/index.php?/ar ... book!.html says.
A tube or a rod is needed? Or both are okay?

Thanks!

Sandor

No, the material can well be a tube as well.
The idea of "stable" tubes is quite new, it has just spread over the last year (s?). Before there had been mostly rods and tubes were said to break easily. Therefore they had not been included in the book (yes, an update should be done, just hand me some time for that ...)
The tubes that are now in use seem to be fine and don`t break.

Thanks!

I suppose tubes are better because they are lighter?

By the way, is there perhaps any non-online store where one can buy these stuff?
(One that has a chain all over Germany perhaps?)

Thanks again!

Nope, a chain that long would be against the rules :)

tubes are better because they are lighter and sturdier.

Sometimes some harwarestores have them in their sortiment, but it is definetly not a regular thing. So online would be the best and most reliable solution.
