Early this morning a highsec duellist was plying his trade in Amarr and spotted another Jackdaw who he challenged to a duel. The fight took over five minutes and was close, calling for a lot of overheating but he eventually prevailed, the killmail shows why it was such a hard fight.
Pyfa gives this fit 82 – 85% resists across the board with an active tank of 233 dps and 280 dps with Mjolnir rage, it also shows plenty of fitting spare and the officer PDS in the lows is a complete mystery to me.
Congratulations to SergiusVictor who had this to say:

SergiusVictor > yes)) nice ))

TMC > that’s rare, can I ask what was in it?
olivieros > Pilots Honour
olivieros > thats what I say
It appears we have a purist on our hands, Sergius had a pod scrammed (which from the fit of the ship would probably have been worth quite a lot) but chose not to kill it as there was no challenge involved. Most pilots would have popped or ransomed it, so much respect to the guy, he is definitely worthy of the title duellist.
