    Hey all,
    I'm looking into getting this guy here: Ancient Spear - Larp Polearm | Epic Armoury Unlimited

    The problem is, I know longer weapons can be iffy sometimes, and I'm having a devil of a time finding reviews for it. I found one that was positive, but when it says 5 stars everything "OMG this is great", I tend to be a bit dubious of it. The only other one I found was for cosplay which means it probably wasn't used to whack people.

    And so I come to you all! Any of you held, touched, beat someone with this weapon? If so, I'd love to hear your feedback.

    And before you say it, I know it requires proper maintenance as all weapons do (even boffers).

    Thanks in advance!

    I haven't touched this one but I have handled a few epic armory spears. They are light, have a little give and are padded well. Problem is with this being a epic armory spear it's only padded 2 inches at most along the entire spear. It even says in the description not a stabbing weapon. Personallly I prefer my spears to qualifiy for missle weapon. Over all for durability, it's epic armory. Take care of it and don't stress it like a calimacil and you get your bang for your buck.

    something i noticed with Ralik Ravenwolf 's Dane axe, which is not the same i know, but he fights with it resting on his foot at times, and i noticed the covering has worn down very quickly and needs to be redone and possible reinforced

    I've played with some of the comparably sized staves. Imo they are really whippy. But epic also says they are working on that problem. So maybe contact them directly and see if you can get a newer one, rather than old stock? I've played with the dane axe, and the halberd as well, they're beautiful but have similar probs, which is frustrating for me as I also want that spear or the winged spear.
