Yes. I've also fenced sabre, epee and foil. I found switching hard, but largely because of the rules changed between them. I think the truth lies partway between these positions. Personally, as a compromise, I apply -3 improv penalty to cultural or similar weapons, -5 to others and probably -10 to really unsual ones.
