Starting from April 2020, fencers at the Cadet & Junior World Championships and Olympic Games, followed by all FIE competitions from September 2020, will be required to use bodywires with transparent plug
Leon Paul's Bodycords are made from the highest possible silver coated quality copper wire and have a wealth of features that make them superior to other manufacturers. Great electrical connection, easy to maintain and long lasting are just some of the product highlights.
Our new transparent bodywires are made with a durable body wire with thicker, transparent PVC cover. The tinned cable inside keeps low resistance for far longer than other bodywires. The transparent cover not allows this to conform with FIE rules, but also makes it even easier to find damage in the cable
Leon Paul's Bodycords are made from the highest possible quality copper wire and have a wealth of features that make them superior to other manufacturers.
The bayonet plug is more reliable than two pin plugs. They almost never come out unintentionally and high resistance connections are very rare so there are fewer white lights during play. Even our three-pin plug is more reliable than many others; the pins are slightly offset meaning that as the plug is pushed in the pins are forced to straighten providing increased tension and a perfect contact throughout its life.
We make our wire from double spun multi core copper cable, each core being made of hundreds of twisted copper filaments. This gives the wire greater flexibility and increases its fatigue life. We coat the wire with clear plastic so that if it does eventually break you can see where it has broken and just trim it rather than replace the whole item.
The covers on both plugs are made from a one-piece flexible plastic moulding. This allows the wire to flex inside the plug and prevents it from being bent repeatedly at the point of entry, which increases the life span of the wire.
Finally, all of our terminations are made with piercing screws which are much more reliable and allow easy maintenance.
