We have the means of reducing bounce back. Then the arrow shit to hard. The
problem is NOT just bounc back it also invols arrows spinning around becouse
of hitting or being hit and leading with their tails. As this will be
discision wil be made by the SEM it will almost certenly be some sort of
modification of the knock of arrows / bolts so as to reduce or eliminate the
posssiabilty of arrows /  bolts entering a helm.
This is NOT just about eye saftey or corvering for the eyes would be the
simple and only answer, it also is about the effecitveness of CA as it
growes in popluarlity and scope. There have been reports on the SCA Missile
list that about 1/3 of all Triamarins did some CA during GW X.
As I see it from my personal biais if you are afraid of being hit in the eye
with a missile cover your eyes or sit out that battle if not fight on.
