I definetly want a coat of plates more than a platebody.
I guess I would have to construct my own rattan sword in a few years then.
or buy one, but that would be more like something I'd want to make.

Alright guys thank you for your feedback.

You can order rattan wood ((i.e. bamboo) shafts already to SCA specifications online at ebay (really cheap). You make them into the weapon of your choice but to requirements of SCA by measurement, thickness, etc. www.sca.org has the listing by kingdom. Swords, pole weapons, axe are common SCA rattan weapons. They use blunted, padded shafts which can also be bought online.

Hey guys, I wouldn't go start buying up a bunch of SCA kit stuff if you've never been to an SCA meeting.  Each kingdom has varying rules, so you'd need to find out exactly what your specific group's requirements are, and they'll be better able to guide you on what they use.  Also, without ever having been to an SCA meeting or fighter's practice, you really don't even know if you like it.  They have loner gear for new folks to wear to make sure it's something you enjoy before you start dropping hundreds of dollars on kit.

That's good advice for any combat activity-- meet the people first, and see what the group's requirements and recommendations are.
