Like it or not as of 01 August 2001 these are the new rules as regards
I've edited certain portions of the Society Marshal's letter to the SCA
Marshals list that were for the Kingdom Earl Marshals and their Deputy Earl
Marshals eyes only. (Don't ask I will not tell you.....)

Here's the long awaited decision ...
Please know that I made the following decision regarding combat regulations,
specifically concerning Combat Archery equipment:
All wooden and fiberglass shafted arrows used in SCA Combat archery shall be
required to have an approved ABD on the nock-end to prevent any injurious
contact to SCA combatants. This requirement shall be implemented on August
1, 2001, to allow a sufficient period for implementation.
Make the following changes:
Combat Archery Handbook
Wood and Fiberglass Shafted Arrows and Bolts...
8) All wooden and fiberglass shafted arrows are required to have an approved
ABD securely attached to the nock-end in such a manner as to prevent more
than 1/2" penetration into any SCA-legal helm.
(Current numbers 8-9 renumbered to 9-10...)
Approved ABDs (Anti-Bounceback Devices):
Foam Wedge ABD (1 1/2" diameter)
Round rod UHMW ABD (1 1/4" diameter)
Octagonal UHMW ABD (1 1/4" diameter)
Details for construction and specifications can be found at:
1 1/4" round rod UHMW ABD and Octagonal UHMW ABDs:
Fellwalker Bolt (SCA-legal):
There will be several more approved designs available soon, pending
conclusion of safety testing. Estimated time for addition to this list is
approximately one month.
