Hello
I've got question about Qui-Gonn lightsaber,
i found 2 types of lightsaber wchich closely resemble
original saber,could You advice if any of them
would work for that costume,and if yes wchich one
would be better option.
I know both of em have wrong switch,and counseilor lack
holes in back of the shroud,but i think those things can be fixed,
mostly i'm worried so both of em lack that deep cuts in that
black inner part of hilt,so that probably cannot be fixed
cause lack of space for electronics inside
http://www.saberforge.com/elite-sabers/guardian-saber

http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/stunt-consular.htm

Would be gratefull for any advices or if You got any better
options for links or so Smile

The Guardian is a lot closer to the original, so that would be my pick.
With that said, I am uncertain of that vendor's current reputation...
There have been some issues with Saber Forge, though there are plenty of customers who have had no problems.

As for Ultra Sabers, well, the only issue of theirs that I'm aware of are their electronics, but that's easily fixed.

So yes, go for the Saber Forge saber, but be sure to point out any issues as soon as you notice them. This goes for both vendors.

The blades of both are fine. Just make sure you get the mid- or heavy grade blades if you pick Ultrasaber.

Basically, it depends on your duelling style. If you just want to bash like a mad-man (like I like to do Razz ), go heavy grade. Also known as a Thick-walled blade, or just as duelling blade.

If you're into lighter duelling or choreography, go for the initiate-/mid-grade, thin walled or showblade.

Advance notice: heavy grade blades do not light up as well as mid grade blades. "Ultraedge" (AKA trans white) blades do not do as well with reds as they tend to wash out the colors they're used with.

There's a lot more than that, but that seems the most pertinent information at this time.

^^ Yeah, don't use Ultraedge blades on red, oranges or yellow, they will wash out. Some people like what it does to white sabers, others think it makes it look like a florescent tube. It seems to look best with cool colors.

As to mid-grade versus heavy grade, mid-grade is pretty indestructible. I've whipped mine full force into a tree and down a ravine (on accident, I didn't have it attached properly!) without even a scratch, and hitting pavement just scuffed it a bit. Just don't mix mid-grades and heavy grades in a duel, and you'll be fine.
