What is all this I hear about using a CLS during Rapier stakes? When do you switch from a Rapier to a CLS and vice versa? Is this actually practical/effective?

everything but one handed weapon off staking, you use rapier until you can 1 hit ko your opponent and then switch to cls, as the one hit will be rapier speed but cls strength, you'll gain an edge. If done right, you will have a slightly higher chance of winning, and if done wrong(switch to cls and not 1 hit ko) you'll give up the advantage. If you are staking high enough amounts cls isn't strictly nessesary as vls is almost identical to it(but degrades).

Does the CLS attacking at normal speed only work for one turn? Or do you keep the rapier speed?

I'm guessing it's only for one turn since you can't just switch to cls right after you use the rapier - so why not keep switching speeds.
Since the cls stats are higher - it would be better attacking at rapier speed and the rapier with lower stats would be attacking at ls speed.

Am I missing something here?

When you switch from cls to rapier you get a rapier hit at cls speed, so you are effectively using a weapon with 5,5 tick speed and the average of rapier/cls's stats, which would be worse than rapier alone.

It's the same thing as what f2p range /str pures use to ko people. Switch to a 2h as soon as your arrow fires to get a 2h hit with the speed of a bow.
