Quest Waikato has no plans to purchase latex weapons at this stage. Individual palyers are welcome to buy their own if they want, but they will be your own responsability.
The following caveat applies: these weapons are not suitable for thrusting. Be aware that if you choose to use these weapons you will be required to restrict your fighting style to accomodate this. Also be aware that you may have to come up with an alternative to the yellow tape / red tape identifiers for enchanted / poisioned weapons; as adhesive tape may damage latex coated weapons.
edit: white tip rules for dark coloured weapons will still apply.
edit: edited for typos (damn it)
