Log in to Reply I used to pooh pooh the floreti, but in the last couple of years I have changed my opinion and now see it as something quite important. I now see it as a way to establish speed of the stick without initiating– a very good thing for me because my initiation speed is quite pedestrian! This then has the effect of putting the opponent on edge– because every rotation of the floreti is capable of launching the strike quite non-telegraphically.
