I think riders who do competitions have to care about it.
With foils it is the question if production can keep up with demand.
Prices are also quiet high, so people with less money will have a disadvantage.
And this is never good.
I think it is a question if riders want to rather do foil racing instead of formula.
IKA will follow then. Anyway, they do since try already offer worlds for foils.
But interesting question for sure, and very valid.
I also agree, get a foil and keep practicing. Won't hurt you, just your pocket
