During the USA Fencing Board of Directors meeting held on Nov. 16, the Board voted that USA Fencing will not adopt the 2nd strap mask rule (m.25.7.f) adopted by the FIE at the 2015 Congress.
However, if a fencer is using a mask with the 2nd strap attached to the mask, the fencer must use it as designed, i.e. around the neck behind the head of the fencer. This rule is effective immediately.
