I am very proud to announce spear product review from Thomas Aagaard, leader of The 9th Stirland at Krigslive VII (Warlarp 7). The spear project is a success so far.
Calimacil Spear feedback:
+ We love them.
+ They are more durable
+ And more effective. One problem with our old ones where that the target often didn’t notice the hit. Now they do because of the weight.
+ Safe. Way better than our old homemade tips.
+ We are saving money. We lost two spears during drill before Krigslive and two more during combat at Krigslive. All of them because of a broken pole. With our old spears it would have been a total loss. Now we can reuse the tips, saving money and a lot of time.
- Looks… but really not as bad as we feared. And the color is a lot better than our old homemade latex tips.
The feedback we got from our enemies was also very good.
+ They notice the hits because of the weight.
+ But they are soft so it does not hurt. One was strongly hit in the head but mentioned that it hurt less that being hit by a soccer ball.
+ Looks not really that bad.
The leader of an enemy spear unit normally thinks Calimacil is too hard for larps… But he really liked the tips and actually talked about getting some for his unit next year…
Feedback from the Vejlegroup.
(they brought 12 of them)
They were happy with them.
I don’t think that there are any durability problems with foam
Here is a fight with the 9th Stirland during Kriglive VII
Ok, so what is the next step now?
We have two versions ready for battle:
A) Pyramidal spear head with hole inside showed in this video
B) Pointed asymetric spear head with telescopic compession tested by Bicolline organisation and thrustable as well
