what is your favorite peice of equipment? why?

i personally like sabre because it is so graceful, plus it is so hard to get, that once you do, it is such an accomplishment

Sabre all the way. I think that it's more of a "GRR" piece of equipment as Flagratgirl said... it is a lot more challenging and that's what I love about it.

And cracking sabre catches just feels really good. LOL!

well, in the poll, which didn't include sabre, i said rifle. Everyone says I'm good at rifle, whatever, but i think i like sabre better. Just the way it spins in the air and everything is just so much more interesting. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE rifle, but if I had to choose, i would say sabre.

Guardee,

Why did you pick sabre... when you only put Flag and Rifle on the poll? LOL!

Sabre is great... just make sure it's a spanish sabre and not a fisher price sabre. I HATE THOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They hurt more than the spanish ones.

Well I for one like flag the most. I think it's the most expressive peice of equipment, and who doesn't love a good flag feature? Plus every color guard uses flags just about (big exception for Raiders '93 of course... :D ) So yeah, flag gets my vote!

Rifles make the whole show, with out it the guard would be boring!! :shock: but that's my :P opinion so don't get mad at for this.
If you drop oh well pick it up and keep on going! DUH

Practice so you won't SUCK (please do it for me)

Boohoo I miss colorguard and I miss my kick A$$ guard. I love you all! Bellflower Guard your still my FLOWERS

I agree that rifle and sabre can make a show so fun and exciting to watch but the one thing that does it for me in a show is the ENDING FLAG PHRASE!!! I love seeing all the performers on the floor with flag giving intensity speed and energy!! its awesome to watch!!! Id rather see a huge clean flag phrase than a weapon line throw a 9 or something :D

On the poll I put rifle, but my favorite is definitely sabre. It has a balance between the thoughness factor and the light pretty factor, I think.

Sab-re and shield. I love both. I love shield because I can so all most anything with it, and I like sabre because I just learned it, yet I can do a lot. My sabre and I work really well together!!!!

What about swing flags? LOL!

People always seem to forget the swing flags.
HAHAHAHAH!

I think they're pretty cool... especially the BIG DOUBLE SWING FLAGS!
It makes a small guard look HUMONGO! Great effect too.
One mo again.
