Thumbs up got mine

I received my Viper Defender the other day (red blade to go with my custom Sith garb). I ordered it with the 3-point end cap that is available for the other hilts from Lightech. All I have to say is that I am extremely pleased with the quality of the saber.

To Dark Chao... Lightech does offer a Purple blade... however according to Mike the purple is discontinued so what he has in stock is all he's going to have (according to a friend that called yesterday with a ton of questions).

Mike also stated that the Double Extreme (light-staff) is in the process of being redesigned. He stated that the connector between the two hilts was too weak. He said that as soon as the redesign is finished it will appear on the main page. They are also redesigning the Defender with a bronze colored emitter. My buddy is waiting for the redesign of the light-staff before he orders (of course he also has to save up the money too), but we are already working on a couple of fight sequences.

Too everyone who has ordered/already has a saber fit for dueling, I trust you are having as much fun with it as I am.

BTW, in case there are those that don't know yet, the visual dictionary for AOTC, has a couple of pages focused on saber combat, including parry and attack diagrams.

I was thinking of getting that Master Replicas Anakin saber sometime in July, but now I've seen Lightech!

Lightech is higher quality, but Master Replicas is only about half the cost!

I'M BEING TORN APART!!!

Anybody able to help me with this impassable dilemma?

bah i make my own lightsabers, and they are AMAZING.
sure they don't glo, but they only cost 5 bucks and it doesn't hurt when you get wacked. this is what i do

take a used driver (golf club) and take off the club part.

buy a pool noodle, the ones that come with holes down the middle

stick the noodle over the club, and secure with ductape and VOILA

you can bash people as hard as you want, swing as hard as you want, these things are light as heck and VERY durable. i fight with my friends all the time, i'm sure its WAY funner then fencing. i have 4 normal sabers, a double bladed one, and two shorter ones. its great. i love playing 4 on 1, its like the ladder exept real life

OMG

that guy in the movie clip from masterreplicas looks REALLY silly waving his saber around. I wonder if he can't move his arms... perhaps they're stuck in that position?


Hand me my lightsaber, It's the one that says 'bad motherfukker' on it...

Lord that was a long thread! Anyway, I'm considering building my own saber, but can't seem to get to the yellowbox site (It's always down for an hour or two, due to exceeds in their bandwidth limit)...

I'd buy one; but considering I have like 20 bucks left in my bank account after buying JK2, and I'm only 15, so the cash doesn't exactly role in nicely. Does anyone have those instructions from yellowbox they could send me/post? If so, my email is: mythren@magiclink.com

Thanks...

Oh yeah, Demangel, you know of any place online that can give basic blade training in text, since I live in an extremely small town? I collect bladed weapons (Currently only have 2 daggers, and just added a 36 inch, Full Tang Katana with 420 Carbon steel...but I've basically taught myself everything I know so far [which is a surprising amount]...) I talked to a swordsman (or so he claimed to be...) in a shop in a bigger town about 100 miles or so from mine while I was there, and just happened to have my wooden-katana with me (I've since lost it...unfortuantly), but it was made of some extremely hard wood (I don't know the details, a friend purchased it for me as a gift), and he happened to have one, so we were messing around, and I easily beat him more than once.

I've also dueled with my cousin (crazily, admitted...and I have more than one scar on my chest, arms, and mostly fingers to show for it all heh) with my bladed weapons, and while he generally wins because he's a few years older and psychotically swings his claymore at me, I do get a few good parries and such in, but I'd really like to improve upon my training.

Of course, mainly, I want the stuff that's written on the Yellowbox site!

You know, I wanted to build my own (and I will, since I can currently afford it), but if it's not what I expect, my next paycheck WILL get me one of these...I just can't stand it.

I think - man...what am I REALLY gunna do with a saber that has no practical uses other than whacking against people/things - I'm gunna have fun .

I KNOW that nobody within 200 miles of me will have one, so I might have to take a trip to England for a duel....

Guess I better start shopping if I'm really gunna do it - paycheck comes July 20th, and I'll wanna know EXACTLY what is the best quality and best suited for what I wanna do, as well as the most bang-for-the-buck, and the way they look.

I REALLY like the Echelon from Parksaber, but the Viper Defender from Lightech is just too neat, as well.

My head hurts...

ok guys, im gunna try and make some out of pvc - they'll be approx. 3 ft. long and will use studs at the ends so the dont look flat. ill take a 1"x3' piece of pvc pipe and wrap a piece thats 8 in. long and can slide over the blade - that'll be the handle - then ill make a count dooku saber with those pvc connectors that are at about a 140 degree angle - prolly cost 10-15$ - sound like a good idea? post back here

Just a shame that the laws of phisics (so far) would not allow you to turn a laser in on its-self there for creating a real blade.

The beam would go on continuesly. That sucks (put a hole through anything you point it at as soon as you turn it on.)

Anything cut short of a floating very reflevtive surface at the tip of the blade would not work.

My dreams have died.

Physics...


(I know I'm being an ass, but I just had the urge to say that . Please don't take it personally in any way, shape, or form...)

However, I understand what he's trying to say, but he wrote it a little confusingly I believe. I think he's saying that there is, currently, noway to contrain the "laser" to a certain length, thus it would go on, seemingly, forever.

Weeeeeeeee :D

Well, since i last posted, i now own 2 (1 Parksabers, 1 Lightech) and both of them are great!

I prefer the Parks saber because of the design (looks like Vaders/Anakins) but the Lightech one has a better colour of blade, and Lightech has 360 degree light, whereas Parks has a small line running up the side

Both are amazing though, me and one of my m8's have been trying to coreograph (sp?) some sort of fight sequence

I have half a ton of saber links, i'll post them later tonight when i get home (working right now, or supposed to be :P)

Well, my memory sucks, but i did say i would post my saber links up the other night, so here they are (can't post pics of mine, yet anyway, no digital camera )

http://www.amazing1.com/star_wars_light_saber.htm - cool site with plasma/argon sabers, cheaper than the EL ones, but not designed for duelling (but the effect is cool nonetheless )

http://www.buystarwarsstuff.com/lightsabers.shtml - The place where i bought my Parksabers Rogue from, nothing apart from Parksabers on here

http://members.tripod.com/rlsasabers/ - This one seems to be just the hilts, all original designs

http://www.koolcollectablesusa.com/starwars/sabers.html - This one is just a link to the Master Replicas sabers which are out now/coming out soon, thought i'd include it anyway

http://www.high-techmagic.com/cgi-bi...y.cgi?0X348591 - The gif on the right hand side of this page says it all (More plasma/argon ones with the effect, not duelable)

http://www.lightechindustries.com/ - One of the bigger ones, and where my Viper Defender came from originally (although second hand when i got it, still cool )

http://www.parksabers.com/ - Seems to be the main competitor for Lightech, Parks has more movie styled hilts, but not exact due to obvious copyright issues

http://www.futurehorizons.net/saber.htm - Another plasma saber site, but this one not only has the extend/retract feature, but also on/off sounds, and due to some sort of car airbag technology, also has swooshy sounds when you swing it (watch the QT vid on the end of the page), you WILL want one of these - the drawback? you better have a spare $590 lying around

http://www.darthsworkshop.fsnet.co.uk/ - Last but by no means least, a site from the UK which has some VERY nice EL lightsabers, which are all based on original trilogy, and EP 1 designs, if i had noticed this page before i got my Parks one, a Vader saber WOULD have been mine...oh well

Enjoy

Just thought i'd answer some of the questions while i'm here too (look, i'm bored, ok? )

Quote:

They definetly are still in business Lunatic, i only recieved ny Rogue 2 weeks ago, maybe less than that (and if it was Lightech you e-mailed, i wouldn't expect any reply from them through e-mail, tried that myself and was told they were really busy (and apparently their phone is a mobile, i think, so it may be off at times))

Thats definetly a yes, since i'm in the UK also, and there was no trouble with either of mine getting to me (be warned though, Parks/BuyStarWarsStuff construction/delivery time is now sitting at 5-10 weeks from ordering, but are worth the wait, provided you don't go insane during the wait )

Well, like i said previous post, i don't have a DV, it could be arranged that i could send a small (and admittedly crappy) webcam video of my green saber in use in the dark (it comes on, and moves a bit, anyway )
Pretty sure that someone posted pics of his earlier on in the thread (a LOT earlier), but they might have been removed now, as this was almost a month ago now...

Post no bars

There's a place near where i live, that sells lightsabers ,the hilts are as good as the ones showed up in parksabers. These lightsabers are special because they do have a real beam and they don't need the bar to make it show up.But for now they only have green and blue.But its really great , of course u can't cut anything with that beam its a lazer but not that strong since it only works in dark places,it comes with rechargeable bateries.They really look great but dont expect something like in the movies those beams are only available in photoshop and gimp . eh
