Title: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Deep on November 08, 2012, 12:53:36 AM
Ultrasabers is proud to present The Manticore.  The ever elusive Manticore is finally available to everyone on www.ultrasabers.com (http://www.ultrasabers.com).  At 11" long and 1.5" wide, this is a very streamlined saber.  The emitter is absolutely gorgeous.  It's very eye catching with the saber off, but when your saber is illuminated it's simply jaw dropping. This saber is built with high quality aircraft aluminum. It will stand up to rigorous use time and again. It's a 3 piece saber design with a highly pronounced flanged emitter with a gorgeous groove pattern and 10 windows to let the light from the blade or blade plug through the emitter..  The saber body has a subtle groove pattern on the grips and the pommel comes in two versions.  One version is very low profile to add to the streamlined look and the other is high profile to add some flare to the saber.  The entire saber is 11" assembled (12" with high profile pommel) so it's ideal for either two hand or one handed combat.

This saber is also available in the RGB color options.  And the RGB version of this saber is the exact same length at the single color version.  So you get an 11' RGB saber!!!

The saber comes completely assembled and ready to go.  The emitter and pommel are all removable and are both compatible with MHS parts.  Sound is also an available option.

Don't miss out on this intro sales price tag, pick up your Manticore here:

O...M...G... It's finally here!!! I feel fortunate just to be one of the first to comment on this announcement that's how amazing this is! Yet somehow I somewhat knew that you guys would release this just before the holiday season thus totally throwing a monkey wrench in my holiday shopping, thanks a lot Deep & Ultra! No seriously THANK YOU! :-)
After I order one I'm going to try to be one of your first customers to do a video displaying it's awesomeness!

Awesome!!  That is one of the best looking sabers I've seen.  The emitter alone is beautiful.  Now if only I can find some cash after Christmas shopping....

Very nice looking saber. Just an FYI, your links at the top are both linking to the w/ sound version of the saber though.

Also, both the sound and no-sound sabers are listed in the no-sound category.

I woke up this morning and checked my phone. I had an email from US. Across the top read the letters "Mant" and that's all I could see because of my phone size.

I literally dropped my phone.

The Manticore is here. Those of you who know me, know that I have been anxiously awaiting this hilt. I did just order a saber in the last few days, and am already planning this for a holiday purchase.

Thank you Ultra Sabers!

Post by: DarthGM on November 08, 2012, 08:24:20 AM
I love the emitter, can't decide on the rest of the saber.  I think I like it, but I need to chew on it some more.

Good work, tho.

When I saw that email, I was checking prices of flights to your area in the event you needed medical assistance.  I know you have been wanting this for quite some time and that your heart might skip a beat to know it is finally available to the public.

Strangely enough the same thought I had ^^ though thinking about making a coupler in the same style as the hilt so it'll look like one solid saber.

Do my eyes deceive me? It's the long-awaited Manticore!! I definitely want a Monarch and Manticore now!!


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: LiethStarKiller on November 08, 2012, 10:04:39 AM
Is the low profile pommel really supposed to be $5 extra than the high profile one? You would think it would be the other way around.


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Oramac on November 08, 2012, 10:07:14 AM
Yeah, I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I'm already planning my purchase. My goal: Manticore staff.

As I said before, I'm stealing this idea.  It seems a smidge too short for a solid two-hand grip, but perfect for a staff.  Plus the emitter would look sick on the staff.  I'm already thinking about how to add an LED crystal slot on a vented coupler for the staff!


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Darth Rifter on November 08, 2012, 10:10:57 AM
woo, nice saber, must get, but if I were to get a full tricked out saber, it would put me down over 400 bucks. Man I wish I had that much money.

That's exactly why I have wanted the hilt. Many of the regular hilts are too long for me to use. This can be a true one hander for me.

Post by: Moderator Manroon on November 08, 2012, 10:53:53 AM
I love that low profile pommel. I do believe I'll have to get one of these whenever I get around to buying some of those Pike extensions. Oh, the sweetness.  8)

But seriously, that's a beautiful saber. Good job, guys.

If I want this with sound and with RGB, is that an option? I didn't see that choice in the menu for the RGB blade on the soundboard Manticore.


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: ed_ification on November 08, 2012, 02:18:17 PM
RGB and sound is NOT an option.  Deep says as much in the introduction video for the Manticore.

The RGB module, switches, and wiring take up too much room for the Obsidian to fit properly.


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Solinus on November 08, 2012, 02:20:25 PM
Point Ed.

That is exactly right. You don't want to even attempt to squish all of those electronics into a tight place. It wont end well.

I also love how it's named after a mythical creature as a sort of nod to how hard it was to get one of these.
Emphasis on "was".
Then again, if you're like me and want to get two of them with sound and a coupler and all the flashy stuff, it's still gonna be a bit hard to get.

This is now on my "Must have" list, along with the Guardian, and the Monarch.  However, it moved automatically to the top the moment it was released.

Holy crap that thing's gorgeous.  The emitter is downright astounding, and the rest of the saber isn't far behind.  That's an MHS emitter, too.  :o


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Abraxus on November 08, 2012, 08:34:12 PM
I just saw that the emitter is for sale by itself.  I can't swing the cost of a new saber right now, but the emitter is totally do-able, and it will look great on my Archon V2!  Might have to get a DVA or a PO (or both) MLS unit to go with it.

You guys would have to release this right after I just ordered a new saber & its already shipped out.  >:(
That is a gorgeous saber & one I will be getting, but if you had released this 2 days ago I would have chosen this one.  :(
But its like I've said along with many others on here, Ultra Sabers surprises us with something new when we least expect it, lol.  ::)
Love the emitter & windows, definitely stands out. This will be the Ambassador of all my Ultra Sabers. 8)
Once again awesome job, Oh & that V3 coupler to make the staff :o thats just wickedly sick.
This will probably one of my Christmas gifts to myself, lol ;D .....if i dont get it sooner, like now, lol. ;)

Just ordered one
BR w/ AB flash
Obsidian w/ blue AV switch
Low pro pommel
Recharge port

And an extra MLS unit in VA w/ AS flash

This is the most excited I've been all year!!! haha

Post by: thisberichard on November 09, 2012, 05:06:35 AM
Quite a beautiful saber. And... possibly even a match for something I've had in mind for quite a while now!

Is there any chance we could get a "length added to saber" measurement for the emitter and pommels?

Correction.....The Manticore emitter is ordered, and on its way!  Since I had a few store points stored up,  I ordered a Bane emitter as well!

Post by: eerockk on November 09, 2012, 04:04:44 PM
That emitter would look awesome on a Shock... I really like this Manticore and I now have to consider it among all my other considerations when I eventually grab the "Sith saber" for the house, (for guests who want to duel my Padaw..errr, my son and I).

Post by: Jare Tal’onidir on November 09, 2012, 05:43:59 PM
Okay, I've know for sometime now that Ultrasabers are cool. How cool? I get the internet for the first time in a month and half, and I find the Manticore front and center. I order said Manticore at lunch time. It shipped in about three hours and will be here Tuesday. I was planning to have a big saber photo and video catch up now that I can post again, but now I think I will wait until next week...


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: Abraxus on November 10, 2012, 09:27:27 AM
When my Manticore emitter arrives, I think I will have to finally do that long overdue video review of my Archon V2, featuring (among others) the Manticore emitter.  As much, as I would love to be able to do a review on the Manticore itself, it is just not in the budget.  However, having this excellent emitter to add to my collection adds yet another personality to my Archon, and I think folks will appreciate seeing how you can essentially transform this saber with the use of different emitters, necks, and pommels.

Not trying to make this an Archon thread.  Just wanted to make it known that the Manticore emitter will be exclusively responsible for pushing my desire to post a review over the top!


Title: Re: New Saber: Ultrasabers Manticore
Post by: JapzLapeno on November 12, 2012, 06:06:15 PM
This just knocked the Overlord, Bellicose, and Archon out of the running for my next saber.  I was on the fence about it when i first saw picks a few months back because the only really cool looking part is the emitter, but now that i've been constantly removing and reattaching the shroud on my Consular, i've come to realize that i prefer a simple grip design for actualy swinging around.  And with the low profile pommel, this is perfect for how i hold swords.  Comfortable looking, simple hilt + awesome vented emitter = YES NOW PLEASE.

Also in one of the pics (close up of emitter with blue LED), the emitter looks like it has nickel plating.  Is this an option that will possibly be available later, because it's not on there now.  If there are plans for this option, i'm definitely holding off to get it that way, or if i can use the requisitions to have it specially requested, i'd do that too.   ;D

I think it pretty much speaks for itself. 

Using just the emitter takes a little off the overall length of the saber, but it still looks good!  I have a solid M/F coupler that can add that length back, but after looking at that combination, I decided I like this configuration better.

You know how some sabers have a choice for different pommels? 

I think this emitter should be a choice for the Archon.  That just belongs there honestly.  Love your setup!!!

Initially, the only thing that concerned me was the difference in size between the emitter, and the hilt at the point where they join.  But, in reviewing the pictures of the actual Manticore hilt, it is exactly the same, so I am good with it!

Seems like it can be grabbed perfectly just below the emitter and hilt body, but still leave enough room below for some two-handed work. Could you please post more saberpr0n for us?

I do plan a thread that will show my Archon with all the different necks, and emitters that I have for it so far.  If you liked this one photo that much, I hesitate to think what a gallery like that would do!

One thing I love about the Manticore is that while being a highly customized and stylish saber, its very alignment-neutral, so its suited equally to light or dark side. I can see this eventually being my RGB saber of choice.

I was thinkung exactly the same! I ordered it yesterday with a VA led and silver foc. I have also the bellicose in BR with orange foc. I'm happy got the bellicose with quick disconnect option beacause i will be able to easly change the color. I will do a review when it arrives and also swap the leds ti show up the colors.

First I liked it. Then I was not so sure... I think it was the emitter.

And now I love it.

I guess it was like one of those new songs you hear. Then hear again. And suddenly you need to buy the album.

Yep, I'll be picking up the Manticore in SY for X-mas... as long as I can prove to my wife I got it on sale (maybe x-mas sale?).  ;D

The Manticore's been in my sights for a while.  Don't know how I missed this thread in my few months aboard, but I just may have to buy two Manti's!  Best looking staff...period...full stop.  :o

But is it correct that there is no Flash on Clash option for the Manticore?

Not sure if someone answered it yet but I got mine with the flash on clash but I think it's cause it has the obsidian sound board in it.

Gaurdian blue w/flash arctic blue
And  blazing red w/flash orange

I asked the same question about the manticore and got my response from another member. The answer is in reply #7.

http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=30373.msg453827#msg453827

"Yes, it's one of my favourite sabers for dueling. It has good balance even with Heavy Grade blades (I even have the High Profile pommel, which shifts the balance further to the pommel end) and provides great grip!

My Archon is also a good dueling saber, almost as good as the Manticore. It has a balance point (assuming a Heavy Grade blade) directly at the end of the emitter, but I tend to hold the saber on the neck which sometimes leads to dents on the leading hand due to the large ring around the lower part of the emitter. So in longer sessions this might become uncomfortable - the Manticore is still comfortable after hours! So definitely a great dueling saber!
