Ever since I started fighting 27 or so years ago in Ansteorra the standard 
that has been "called" is, damage done through armor standard if weapon was 
real. So the blow will have to be of sufficient force (determined by the 
receiver) to either have killed  or disabled enough to resign. Therefore the 
blow would have to penetrate the face. A touch to the grill wont do you; 
need to move the head just a little. If people want to stop all of the fine 
point squabbling, just outlaw fiberglass spears and you wont have to worry 
about breaking someone's neck (and I am not speaking figuratively) anymore.
