I use a Negrini FIE epee glove. Over a good bit of fencing I have worn a small hole in just the leather sewn on top of the FIE material on the palm of the glove. It is underneath where the end of my pistol grip rests and has not compromised the FIE material underneath at all, just the thin leather.
My question is, at a NAC when my glove is getting checked if I make that argument do you think it would still be approved for fencing?
The FIE material is still solid and the small hole is underneath where my grip sits so it can't catch a tip... plus it's already way safer than the plain leather gloves...
