I'm looking for a lightsaber for Jaina and I'm wondering where are some places to look? I would like to spend less than $150 on a saber. I've looked at Ultrasabers before but I've heard mixed feelings about them.

I've got a few simple sabers from Ultrasabers, and everything went fine. Heard a lot of bad things about them too, but don't have any complaints myself.

What kind of saber do you want? Ultrasabers offer only what designs they have, so no customizing there if that's important. They do have a nice purple option for the light, or you could go for a white blade and add filters (I recommend getting LEE filters, the colour discs from Ultrasabers are VERY pale IMO.)

I would like something that looks similar to hers; although, there are different ones when I google it so I'm not sure which one is the right one. I wouldn't mind a Mace Windu one, but I don't know how popular those there are anymore.

while I don't know if it falls into your price range Genesis' work is fantastic. He's the only guy I get sabers done by now

That is nice. Seeing how much the others are, I think that's a little expensive for me atm

I've been considering an Archon with the classic pommel in Dark Violet Amethyst from Ultrasabers for a Jaina saber. I own 3 Ultrasabers and have been very happy with them, though I do know others have occasionally had issues. They're nice looking hilts, pretty durable, and not bad for pricing. My biggest issue is that most of their hilts are absolutely gigantic. (anything over 12 inches for a single bladed saber hilt just looks way too big to me.)

another saber design is know as a jaina's lightsaber :



The strip below is from several sources, and the last on the right is the luke ep. VI in MR or hasbro version.


A cheapest way to make a Jaina lightsaber can be a Luxeon conversion of a MR or Hasbro lightsaber, sandblast the emitter, and turn in black (paint glue some grips or a film ...) the bottom of the body.
