I am looking in buying pre-made foam weapons from http://www.Calimacil.com. My question is has anyone used or seen these and do they pass Belegarth safety regs?

Just want to check before I drop a good deal of money, thanks in advance.

While they are definitely beautiful and realistic-looking, they are not legal for Belegarth. One of the main reasons is this:

1.3.3. Two and one-half inch ruleā€”No surface on a striking edge (sword tip, arrow head, spear head, javelin head, etc.) whether designed for stabbing or not, may readily pass more than 0.5 inch (1.25 cm) through a 2.5 inch (6.5 cm) hole; swords with a semicircular tip, with a minimum 1.5 inch (3.75 cm) radius are exempt from this rule.

The tips of the Calimacil swords are much narrower than 2.5". In my experience, they are also better-designed for light to medium contact, not the full-force swings that we use in Bel or Dag.
