Paul was the one used to shield fighting. In the other fight with Feyd we see (his 100th kill), he wasn't using shields. Paul, on the other hand, almost lost to Jamis because he would slow down his strikes because he was used to shield fighting.

Paul had problems with Janis very soon after he even land on Arrakis. He improved his fightning skill without shield next two years of terror against Harkonnens. Feyd fought only with slaves, not with their best warriors, which were on Dune - losing to Muad'Dib in fights for Dune. Also he was a Kwisatz Haderach, so he had better reflexes. Maybe in genetic line they were equal, but Feyd wasn't two years under straight spice influence.

Does the 2 years of spice exposure realy justify the greatly superior speed and strength that paul had aginst feyd personally i think it had to do with the weirding way that his mother taught him when he ws young

Don't forget that duncan idaho and gurney halleck also trained him. Duncan was one of the best swordmasters.

So, Bene Gesserit has much of their abilities based on spice. Spice hastes mind. And mind hastes body.

The part you are missing about the encounter between Paul & Fenring is prescience. The prescient cannot see other prescient people in their future sight.
Paul had the edge on Fayd because of his future sight. Fenring was close enough to a Kwisatz Haderach to be invisible to Paul's prescience so the outcome of a fight would be a complete unknown for both people.
There are two legs of the Kwisatz Haderach breeding program which converge in the birth of Paul. Given that Fenring was part of the same breeding program, it's almost certain that they are related. Given their age it is likely a close relation.
