Red Dragon Feder

Hi everyone

Has anyone used these new feders being offered by the Knight Shop (as the HEMA shop)?

Just wondering what they're like/how they handle, and how they compare with others available (e.g Regenyei etc)

There are some at the Academy of Historical Fencing. I have not handled any though I think that the general agreement is that they are too whippy in the blade.
Like I say I haven't actually handled one so can't give first hand information.

There are two types, just to complicate matters :)
I suspect that one is stiffer than the other.

So would this mean that when ordering one, I would be given a choice of which I wanted?

There are two different models, with different names and code numbers:
