It's true. There are a few knights and masters on the Missile Combat list, some of whom are advocating a single society standard and that standard would be tube ammo. In fact some are actually advocating that we go to a single manufacturer!
What is driving this is the fear that a fiberglass shaft will penetrate a blunt and then someone's eye. I and others have been trying to reassure them of the safety of fiberglass shafts when wedded to UHMW blunts. Some have actually come around to a point. Others lofted their opinions and then left. I have to say, a number of the posters on the list (CA proponents and anti-CA types) have been less than courteous.
Duke Lucan has posted an account by one of his squires stating that he was struck below his eye by a blunt-less shaft. So those that dislike CA has an incident to point to.

What information does anyone here have on this? Sir Lyonel just posted this to the Chiv list.
A number of knights in various kingdoms are pressing, lately, to ban fibreglass shaft ammunition and allow only 100# siloflex bolts and arrows on the battlefield.
I confess that I don’t frequent the SCA-wide lists, so I hadn’t heard of this until now. Does this have a chance? What is driving this? Lyonel put a pool out to our list to get the opinion of our chivalry on it asking just one question…”do you agree with this?” I don’t expect many of the Ansteorran chivalry to support such an idiotic (sorry…to strong a word?) proposal. I just wanted to find out what anyone else might know about it.
