Autumn Raffle Grand Prize winner here... thanks to Deep and his entire team again for the last raffle and there are no words to describe the level of awesomeness that it felt like to win. I was so excited and grateful that I even recorded a thank you video and emailed to Ultrasabers. I wanted them to know from me personally how lucky and grateful I felt. Do not miss out on the opportunity to participate in one of these raffles. They're so much fun and the comradery that is felt in the saberforum community is really unique. I loved hearing about everyone's raffle entries, seeing reviews on them as well as reviews from the raffle winners. It's so great to be an Ultra Sabers customer!  Thank you, Ultra Sabers!

US has been giving away so many free sabers that its a wonder that they make any profit at all.   I have won a saber in both raffles the I have entered and I love both of my 2nd place prizes.  If you have the spare cash and want a great saber then its time to buy your saber and enter the raffle.  Good luck to everyone who is entering and can't wait to see the prizes.

I was disappointed to miss out on the great Christmas special deals but now I am excited for the raffle.
Hope to finally get my worked Graflex on pay day, can hardly wait.
Good luck to all.

Me, too. I just ordered an Arbiter so I might be able to swing another order before Jan. 16th, but it's gonna have to be for a saber that I hadn't planned on getting with the Emerald driver, like the Scorpion, and probably not one of the higher end sabers like the Chosen One, so possibly an Aeon, Sentinel or Prophecy. Have any particular saber in mind yourself?


Title: Re: Ultrasabers Winter Raffle ends 01/16/2017
Post by: Corwyn VonBeck on December 24, 2016, 08:36:24 PM
Been looking at the Dark Arbiter myself, and having crazy thoughts... (Run Rev, Run!)

considering a couple different approaches.
1. 2 empty hilts for a future project.
2. A Dark Prophecy with V4 & Tri-Cree Red.

They come out to within $5 of each other, so I guess the main question would be if I want a full working saber, or another project. Both have their attractions...

I highly recommend #2 except with TRI Arctic Blue. I love mine. The black and TRI AB go so well together.

order going in Fri: Dominix V4 in br, qr coupler, apprentice V4 LE in va to finish staff.
2nd place winner last raffle....hoping for a little higher (mhs hilt, emerald) this time. v3 or v4 sound would work too.

I had wondered about a blue, but my Aeon V2 is a GB, so was wondering about green & red... If I get the Dark Prophecy I will be making it my own special LE version out of it, and color probably wont be decided until I actually pull the trigger... I have seen some very good looking Arctic blues.... gah! lol

Does the $250 purchase include the cost of postage?  Or does the $250 have to be before postage is added?

eg $210 saber + $45 postage = over $250 purchase?


Title: Re: Ultrasabers Winter Raffle ends 01/16/2017
Post by: Jediseth on December 26, 2016, 07:34:39 AM
That's going to be the cost of the saber. At least that's usually how it works. Shipping does not pay US anything and it can also change depending on location. I would say no.

Why!? Ultrasabers... You keep finding ways to tempt me to buy more! XD Love it, though. Unfortunately I won't be buying any for a while. I think my partner would use it to run me through if I were to buy another saber right now. lol

Besides, I had a win in the last one...  ;D

Good luck to those participating in the raffle!


Title: Re: Ultrasabers Winter Raffle ends 01/16/2017
Post by: KraytDragonPearl on December 27, 2016, 09:33:15 AM
The problem is that US is constantly holding that carrot in front of us and leading us to the purchase screen.  We all want more sabers and really don't need them...Seriously I have 16 sabers and only have two hands.  Even with 5 people in the family that really only means we "need" to have a max of 10.....PPPPBBBBBTTTTTT!!!! Yeah Right! 

If I wasn't scared of what my wife would do to me if I purchased another one, id be buying another one right now.  I think I'm going to have to sell off some of my other sabers before I can get anything else.   :'(

Cant wait to see who wins this one though.

This is truly exciting and very fortuitous for me. My girlfriend and my parents had talked about gift ideas for me and, being the wonderful girlfriend who ordered me my first obsidian saber (Raven with Orange blade), she told my family I had been struggling to save money for a new and possibly final saber (consular with emerald). As they were unsure of the exact things I truly wanted in my saber, they instead got me enough money to place the order myself. I went to place the order and immediately noticed two things: the raffle and the Consular hilt sitting at a daily deal price.

I love my sabers I already posess and the new one will be a welcome addition, and the chance to win more sabers is an amazing opportunity, especially given how happy I see people are with their previous winnings here on the forums and YouTube.

Good luck to all and may the force be with us

Very cool! Love when things line up like that  ;D

Good for you, man! You will love the Consular. I love mine because it's like 2 sabers in one when you remove the shroud. Good luck in the raffle!

Silly question but do the incentives stack. For instance I am looking at ordering an emerald sound Aeon V4 and a stunt Aeon V4 and a coupler to staff it up. I wish I could afford both with sound but oh well. That comes to greater than 600 can get the plug, shirt, stand, and initiate? Or just the initiate?

Yes all of them are combinable. Just add each of the coupon codes at checkout.

Damn, wish I'd read through this forum earlier.  I thought only one coupon code was redeemable per order.  I used a code I had been issued and didn't know I could enter the code for the drawing as well.  Looks like I need to read things more thoroughly.

It depends on the coupon code. The coupon codes for the raffle are combinable and so are usually the codes used when other promotions are run when it's "spend $300 get...", "spend $450 get...", where you can add all the coupon codes starting with the highest you qualify for and including all the others below it, but not usually the coupon codes that are issued to you directly by Ultra Sabers. I have one of those myself, and it was spelled out when I received it that it wouldn't be combinable with any other codes. If you still have the email you received from Ultra Sabers with that code, check out the terms on it, or you can just test it out by adding it to your order and then trying to add another code. If it's not allowed, the page will reload with a message telling you and the code you just added replace rather than gets added to your shopping cart.

Post by: Aayrick on December 28, 2016, 02:52:44 PM
I already sent an e-mail asking about it.  The coupon I used was issued by them, and said it wasn't combinable with other offers, which was why I didn't even think to try to enter the raffle at the same time when I put the order in.  We'll see what they say on it.  US has been great with their customer service, so either way it goes, I'm still getting a nice new saber :)

Waiting for Friday...Emerald Chosen One CE day.

Also, I've got to start accumulating the parts for summer projects soon, so I might be able to also swing a last minute order, as well.  Interesting bit about that is that if I order the empty Flamberge SE hilt I need the crossguard from, I'll be building up the main hilt later into a saber to donate to the school saber choreography group.

Hopefully I will be in on this raffle. Getting some money together after this long and busy holiday season of double shifts at UPS. If I don't get lucky in the raffle hopefully I have a new saber. I would like to see a Leia inspired saber, would probably get that for my wife or daughter.

I hope to have a more "optimistic appraisal" of the situation next week and be able to decide then whether I can enter. Once you've entered one raffle, it's hard to pass one by, because the cool thing is that everyone gets a saber, even if you don't win, unless you buy a huge load of accessories instead to make your entry, and I know of no one who's done that yet.  Lookin' forward to how the next couple of weeks develop. Best of luck to you guys.

I've done that.  Not sure which raffle, but I ended up with three entries, one of which was bits and pieces (IIRC, that may have been when I ordered 3 Obsidian V4 boards).  That did not, however, end up being my winning entry, but did contribute to some awesome DiY saber projects.

In fact, if I manage a second entry for this raffle, it'll be parts (although it'll have an empty hilt or two as the biggest parts of such an order, I have more projects in mind for the coming summer).

Ah ha!  ;D  Thanks for replying on this one. Good to know. I guess I was kind of correct then in thinking that everyone that enters gets a saber sooner or later out of it. Anyway, I wish you the bestest of luck to be drawn a winner, shade.

It does suck, I've had to sit out a raffle earlier in the year.

I think I'll just go ahead and put away the money for my Emerald Graflex ahead of time, so that when the next raffle after this hits, I won't have to figure out if I can enter or not, AND finally get the other of that iconic duo.

I entered as well.  I picked up a flash sale saber and a saber for my grandson. It did not let me enter the raffle code and the flash sale cone together but the email for the flash sale Sade if you put your forum name in the comments section it would still enter you in the raffle.

So I am in my first US raffle!

Well...I was waiting on 2 gift sabers I bought in early November for a couple friends (Warglaive w/ Obsidian Lite Sound with a silver blade + color discs, a Flamberge v2 w/ Obsidian Lite sound with a red blade and fire orange port blades), as well as one for myself (Renegade LE w/ Obsidian Lite sound with red main blade and red port blades), BUT...  all three models are on backorder, and won't be finished fabricating until February.  And then...then Ultrasabers has to go and start a Winter Raffle, and of course I HAVE to enter that. 

My Raffle entry:

Dominix v3 with Obsidian Lite Sound
[Blade LED Color:TRI Fire Orange]
[Flash on Clash:Flash Red]
[Obsidian Lite Battery Configuration:Standard Setup]
[Blade Length:36" Standard Size]
[Blade Option:Mid Grade]
[Obsidian Lite Sound:Obsidian Lite Soundboard]
[Pommel:Renegade LE Small Pommel]
[Switch Type:Orange Illuminated Black AV Switch]
[Blade Tip:POINTED TIP]
[Include Retention Screw Wrench:Sure!]
[Include Blade Plug:Yes, Include Standard Plug]
[Include Saber Stand:No Thanks]
[Include Covertec Clip:No Thanks]
[Install Covertec Wheel:No Thanks

And I'm going to Mod the hell out of the emitter, and the rest.  Drill some holes, carve some designs.  Gonna be awesome with my Team Orange blade.

Good luck folks!

A Tri-Orange blade on the Dominix will look stunning with that accent orange AV - great build!



Also just wanted to point out that FoC isn't compatible with Tri-Cree so you don't get disappointed when turning on your lightsaber for the first time.  

Or you might want to email US and make adjustments to your order if you had wanted FoC.

Well looks like it's finally time for me to order something. Been teasing myself on here for about a year now. Gotta wait until i get paid next week though. Hmmmm spent so much time on this site and I still can't  decide what my first will be....Electrum Wind, Lost Gray, Mantis, Catalyst...man so many options!

EW is great, but I'd go with the Lost Gray or the Mantis. You'll like whatever you end up getting.

The Lost Gray is separating itself from the pack more and more right now. I just love how sleek it looks. Mantis has always been one of my favorites, love me some curved hilt. Also really contemplating a Standard Issue, love the diagonal emitter and after seeing how people like Drahcir have customized them, I really like it. All I know is I want VA or DVA for the blade, so just figuring out which one that looks best on will make my decision a lot easier

Here's a picture of my Electrum Wind in Dark Violet Amethyst, if it helps. My Lost Gray is in TRI Guardian Blue

I think the gold/silver black combination of the Electrum Wind looks best with shades of Amethyst.

Yeah I do love the way the EW looks with VA, I mean how could it not look amazing? And with it being pretty canon, it's a saber I'd love to build. I thought once US came out with one of this style, my decision would be so easy, but they had to go and make the Tano ones freakin' amazing too!

Seems like the Flamberge is the only thing listed as Backordered in the catalogue.  The other two just have standard 5-working-days leadtime disclaimers.

Yeah, I really want a DSI, but that'll be later. Same with the Fulcrum and Lost Gray. My friend has an EW, and I've used it some. I like the looks, but it just isn't speaking to me much right now. The Dark Mantis is very high on my wishlist right now as well, but it is just really big. Personally I'd go with DVA, just because to me it seems like a more "full" color than regular VA, and I like the darker color as well.

Post by: hazard502 on January 01, 2017, 04:30:03 PM
Yeah I agree with it being fuller ... might sacrifice a wee bit of brightness but it's no deterrent when considering DVA.

Thanks for the heads-up!  Yeah I didn't know it wasn't actually available - I see now the disclaimer they have when choosing FoC about the Tri-Cree - I guess by default they go ahead and install FoC and refund the Tri-Cree for a regular LED.  That works for me, but I already emailed the folks at US about it, so oops lol

No reason to be concerned at all Duelist7.  They ship out order entries early now and then, possibly depending on their work load.  It doesn't disqualify you - you are still in the raffles and could win the big prize!  :)

Thank you!  I got confirmation on my entry today as well - will arrive in a couple days, AND while they did remove the Tri-Cree LED's in order to keep the FoC, I WAS also charged for it.  But they emailed me before it shipped, explaining that they'd credited me the difference.

US might have the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with.

I have a question I'm hoping someone can help me with.

I finally pulled the trigger on the Archon v2.1 that I've been lusting over for a year on December 29th, after waking up that morning to the one-day 20% off special on that particular lightsaber. However, when I ordered, I had to put in the 20% off code, so I couldn't enter the "WinterRaffle" code. I did put my forum name in the comments section, as the email instructed.

Should I be worried that I wasn't entered in the raffle since I didn't enter that code or is my username in the comments section enough? Should I give US a call to make sure everything's in order?

If you followed what the email that was sent to you said, there should be no concern as long as you still (after the discount) met the $250 or more for the order to be entered into the raffle.

I just wanted to say that I won during the Summer Raffle and I was very impressed. I got the Sentinel LE V4 with sound and absolutely love it. It is my third lightsaber, and could not be more happy with them. Anyone that is on the fence about entering the raffle, I would highly recommend it. It may be a high entering cost but it is all worth it in the end; you get a high quality Saber, great customer service, and a good shipping time.

Thanks Benji. I did follow the email to the letter and I was well above the $250 threshold, so I should be good. I may shoot them an email just to confirm and ease my mind, but seeing as how this is the first raffle I've gotten in on, I want to make sure I did everything right.

Great choice on the Archon.  It was one of my first and still one of my favorites.  You might try e-mailing.  I forgot to include my forum username in my order notes, e-mailed them about it, and had a response less than an hour later.

OK, so I just called US (awesome customer service, by the way), and I am in fact entered into the raffle just by entering my forum username in the comments section of my order. So even if you use a promotional code (in my case, the 20% off the Archon V2.1), as long as your order is over $250 and you enter your username in the comments section of the order, you're entered.

Whew! Thanks for everyone's help in this thread too. Good luck to everyone that's entered!

I got an email stating similar things this morning.

MaskOfMany,

I am receiving mine tomorrow... Convinced my boss to allow me to work from home since I need to sign the package. These hours can't go by any slower right now.

Jediseth,

That's interesting. Yeah out of all the plethora of saber related companies I've done business with, Ultrasabers does seem to provide the most professional platform with a desire to go even higher. Excited to see this brand in a couple of years. Especially now that a whole new generation of Star Wars fans have been captured!!!

open up the mail and there should be a tracking number. You can then simply just paste that in a search bar if you want as a shortcut. Or just go on that carriers site.

Has anyone from Canada been a raffle winner?

Yep :)

I've won twice!  AMAZING prizes each time too- a mantis ce with sound and a very cool/ unique Arctic blue blade  and a scorpion with sound and the emerald driver!!!  Unreal!!  I still can't believe it lol. 

It's a pretty amazing thing to score a win in one of these, and get that mystery saber in the mail :).  I can't even describe how awesome it is, like being a kid on Christmas morning again haha.  It really is unbelievable just how many of these raffles US has done for us recently, beyond cool.  Thanks US!! 

I had to miss the last raffles due to funds issues lol, I can't let this one slip... only thing is, I'm still having those funds issues lol, so I'll just have to say a proverbial prayer to the saber gods and hammer some OT or something and hope like heck the timing works out that I can sneak this in!  If there's ANY way I can, I'm SO in this one. 

Best of luck to everyone entering!

Been looking at the Dark Arbiter myself, and having crazy thoughts... (Run Rev, Run!)


Haha!  I think I'll stay put :).

Hmm... the prophecy is gorgeous.  But but then the dark arbiter is on sale correct?  Tough call. 

If I can swing it, I'm torn between the three newest releases.  Need them all eventually lol, but those are all likely candidates, and also i need another Graflex CE and another mantis- yes, need lol... I need them, don't judge me!  ;).

Rev,

Ughhh I can't read the word "Graflex" without my mind starting to melt slowly. Mine is still processing and still waiting on it to ship.Bad part is.... I leave for a business trip on the 20th... AND THAT TRIP IS 3WEEKS. So it's either, the raffle ends, and my two day shipping works and I get to play with it for a day or two before leaving, or else the wait time is extended another 3 weeks. I wake up sweating every day man, lol

Anomylech,

I learned this the hard way. As long as they haven't shipped it yet, they can open back up and make changes (obviously)
However.... two things to consider.
1) You'll have to pay 25 bucks for them to open your hilt back up (disassembly fee they call it)
2) If it was close to the day they were planning on shipping but now have to open back up, may take you extra time to receive it

good luck!

Oh no I don't want to make changes!  I wanted and paid for The Works on both entries and don't regret any (except the initial color choices, but since Emerald, who cares).

I'm just hoping they're going into shipping boxes sooner rather than later now that some people are getting their orders already ;D

So I was wondering regarding the raffle, if the order ships does it mean the raffle prizes maybe included with the shipped items? or will they contact afterwards, i was told via customer support that the order placed will ship after the raffle ends. Either way im excited my first saber Arbiter will be comin soon! and in Sentinel Yellow haha.

My saber that I won came in the same box as my saber entry. They held the saber until all the winners were announced. Then they are shipped together.   I think this is the norm.

I wouldn't discount it yet, I did read somewhere that they may have sent stuff out already. You will find out for sure when it's over. I may have not been much help. I highly doubt they have made any winners.The Winter raffle Is not over until the 16th. That means people could still submit.

I have had orders held until the end, and had a prize I won shipped with my entry, I have also received my entry well before the raffle was over, won a prize with it, and had the prize ship to me separately.  The one thing that seems to be most consistent is that if your entry is a backorder, your prize will wait on the backordered saber before it ships out.

A bunch of folks have gotten shipment notices on their entries for this raffle, but they're not out of it, while I have not had mine ship yet, but I read nothing into that, either.

If I had to guess, I'd say that I suspect they're trying to ship all of the easier/simpler sabers first (easier electronics, I mean) and/or that notable scene from Rogue One has increased demand on a certain saber, so I may wait a little extra time for my Chosen One CE with V4 sound and Emerald.

It doesn't seem to be the case this time around. Lots of sabers are going out before the winners are announced.  I have never had my sabers sent out before the raffle ends, but hey that doesn't mean anything I guess.

I hope it's not the case this time around - US has me utterly checkmated because I don't know that I'll ever be able to stop ordering more sabers until I finally win one in a raffle.  I just got into all this last summer, just in time for the Summer Raffle, and I've been in every one since.  It's already a vendetta to win in a Raffle lol

My second entry (two empty hilts and a blade) has shipped.

For those worrying, it really is nothing to be concerned about.  As I have said, I have had raffle entries go both ways, where my entry shipped first and I still won, and where I had to wait for both.

No one is DQed by having their saber ship to them.

Anyone know if there is a way to enter the raffle and use the Flash20 code?

The email I got states "Simply put the coupon code 'Flash20' will take 20% off the purchase of the Consular. But this sale ends today 01/11. Don't miss out. You can still enter the Winter Raffle by typing your SaberForum name in the comments field of your orders over $250. This coupon code cannot applied retroactively or be combined with any other offers."

It makes it sound like it can still count as a raffle entry (just type your name into the comments field), but can't at the same time: i.e. being combined with another offer. When I try to put the Winter Raffle code in, it takes the flash20 off.

You still can enter the raffle even if you use the "Flash20" for the 20% off the Consular. Simply like it says just enter your SaberForum name in the comments field below when making your purchase order and you're still in the winterraffle. It is the alternative of still entering the winterraffle since you can't combine the winterraffle code itself with the Flash20 since Flash20 says it can't be combined with "ANY" other coupons. I hope that makes sense.

So if I were to order a $252 saber, and use my bonus points to take money off it to cut down on the intl. postage, would it still count as being an order over $250? Or will it not let me enter if it drops down to $238?

Because for me a $250 order is actually a $298 order. What's the postage like for you guys in the States?

I double checked with customer service and they clarified that I am entered with the Flash20 code by putting the forum name in the comment box. US customer service has been great at answering all of my questions during the order process. I went with the Emerald Consular with v4 sound. I love that the emitter and pommel can both be swapped out, which I think will keep me entertained for a while, and that the shroud can come off to give it another look.

May the Force be with us all in this raffle.

The first saber I got was a black Emerald Sciepion and a pike extension - it's pretty cool.  The only complaint I would have in it at all is that the pike doesn't fit 100% flush with the scorpion, and because of that the outside skirting on the scorpion is a little loose.  Otherwise it's awesome.

In any case congrats on the saber, and good luck in the Raffle!

I intend to post a review video for both my sabers very soon.

Congratulations on getting your second saber! The Consular is a fantastic choice and with 20% off!

If you win you'll get an email from Ultra Sabers on Tuesday morning, Jan. 17th, but they'll also post the list of winners on saberforum.com late Monday night, Jan. 16th, around 1-2 am Central Time.

I did it lol.  Got a saber as a bday gift for a friend of mine.  So yeah, I guess I'm officially entered into the Raffle twice now.  If I don't win something this time, I'm gonna have to dropkick an infant.  And then enter into the next raffle because it's a full-on vendetta now lol



My first raffle, I entered three times.  Didn't win anything, that time.  All an entry is, is a chance to win.

That said, I've gotten extraordinarily lucky (my entries are one with the force, and the force is with them) in raffles since then.  The odds are likely to swing back away from me, and that's just fine, because I'll still have my empty hilts for projects coming up this summer, and my Emerald Chosen One CE, even if my numbers don't come up.

Just got my first saber. Could probably argue that the winner should be someone who's a repeat customer, but I'm in it to win it!  ;D Almost pulled the trigger a year ago, couldn't quite justify the indulgence. Looked at the site again this year, saw the Electrum Wind and was like 'Yep! This is happening!' Just got the notification it shipped, can't wait to receive it.

I finally got my raffle order placed!  I had to wait until payday, but I made it before the deadline!  So excited!  I was a little torn between placing two orders (and having a chance for two entries) or combining to get an Initiate.  I opted to combine.  There are beautiful sabers on the way no matter what, so I'm smiling. 

My orders:

1. Prophecy v3 with Obsidian Premium Sound
[Blade LED Color:Guardian Blue]
[Flash on Clash:Flash Arctic Blue]
[Battery Configuration:Li-Ion Setup with BuckPuck (Batteries Included *ONLY*)]
[Recharge Port:Recharge Port + No Charger]
[Blade Length:32" Length]
[Blade Option:Heavy Grade]
[Pommel:Warglaive Pommel]
[Sound:Obsidian USB V4 Sound! [V4]]
[Switch Type:Blue Illuminated Black AV Switch]
[Blade Tip:POINTED TIP]

That's the one I'm most anxious to get, I think.  I was very interested in getting a "Chosen One" but I want to be able to spin it. 

2.Dark Liberator v3 with Obsidian Lite Sound
[Blade LED Color:Consular Green]
[Flash on Clash:Flash Silver]
[Obsidian Lite Battery Configuration:Standard Setup]
[Blade Length:32" Length]
[Blade Option:Heavy Grade]
[Obsidian Lite Sound:Obsidian Lite Soundboard]
[Pommel:Raven SS Pommel]
[Switch Type:Green Illuminated Silver AV Switch]
[Blade Tip:POINTED TIP]

Oh, okay, I can't wait to get this one either!   I think this one will help me the most with my spin training.  And I've been practicing so much my hands are aching! 

Time to start pacing the floor, methinks.

You made a very good decision based on comfort and great handling.  The Chosen One is so beautiful and unbelievable - but it's very difficult and uncomfortable to wield.  And well, the Prophecy is really easy on the eyes and impressive as well so win win :)

Congrats on your orders and good luck!

I hate the fact I HAD a paid off credit card.  This giveaway along with the free random saber was just too tempting.  Got my wife and I a new saber with sound this time since first round we went just basic combat mode.  Hopefully I can add sound to those later.    Since I do a bit of charity visits and finishing up a grey wookiee, I ordered a Fulcrum with silver blade for my wookiee to carry when I feel like it.  Best part of being a generic wookiee, nobody can say it's wrong as long as I am just doing a non- rebel legion sponsored visit.   Fulcrum looks very plain, yet awesome, so fit the elder wookiee look in my opinion.    Would love to win the the off-hand Lost Gray...but if not, will pick it up in the future most likely.

Best of luck to everybody!!

Thanks for the confirmation and the well wishes, Hazard502!   I think the works of art that are the Chosen One and the Graflex will someday reside in my home.  My wishlist keeps growing.  So many gorgeous choices! 

I'm going to repurpose a quote I love for books.  It fits here as well...  "When I get a little money, I buy light sabers; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes."

Well just to be clear - you can only choose which saber you'd like if you win one of the Gand Prizes.  All other prizes are selected by US and you don't know what it'll be until you receive it - which is also crazy exciting!

Good luck to you Jedi Techno!

This is the 3rd Raffle I've entered since I became a US customer last Summer, and the other two times I actively DIDN'T think about what I may go for if I were to win any of the top tier prizes, because I was sure if I did that I would lose.  I'm superstitious like that. 

Aaaaaaaaaaaand, I wasn't chosen anyway.

So...  Screw it.

***IF*** I were to win a Grand Prize, I think I'd go witttttthhhhh...

Maybe another black Scorpion, so I can take it and make a staff with the one I already have, and maybe...a Flamberge SE for all the modding fun.

Okay, now that I've successfully cursed myself from ever winning anything in any US Raffle ever for all time no matter how many entries I get in, I'm gonna stop thinking about it.

Thanks, buddy.  I have very conservative expectations and keeping in mind that I have an amazing saber being built for me right now, so I get a saber regardless, and I'm just thrilled for the chance to be a winner and to get to participate. Being a raffle ticket holder is half the fun. You're definitely right, though, the odds are probably not in my favor.  Whatever happens, I quote Chirrut Imwe, "All is as the Force wills it."  It's all good.

Nice! That's quite a formidable weapon. Yes, you can configure the main blade led, the left blade led and the right blade led all individually. You can also not have the left and/or right blade illuminate, remove one or both of the side blades and turn your saber into a regular saber with a kickin' emitter.

Wait, wait, wait.

Some clarification is really, really needed to avoid a potentially expensive mistake.

The side blades on an Emerald crossguard saber are controlled by one of the 4 Emerald channels, and they do NOT have full color changing function.  They also are wired together, so you can not simply turn one side off via the Emerald driver, they are not controllable individually.

If you want to have a variety of color choices for all three blades, the method that works is to get the Emerald driver and white (Adegan Silver) side blade LEDs, plus color discs or photographic lighting filters, such as the LEE filter swatch book http://shop.leefiltersusa.com/Swatch-Book-Designers-Edition-SWB.htm (http://shop.leefiltersusa.com/Swatch-Book-Designers-Edition-SWB.htm)

The best method is to find a filter that you like in the side blades, and then try to match the main blade to the filtered sides via the Emerald settings.  Caveat to that is that some filtered colors simply cannot be matched to a satisfactory degree with RGB, but you can get a very wide variety of excellent matched colors.

Again, and this is very important, you cannot change the colors of the side blades in an Emerald crossguard saber via the Emerald settings in the launcher program, if you want to have the ability for matched blade colors in a variety of colors, AS side blades and Emerald driver, plus filters or color discs is the ONLY satisfactory method for a stock saber.

I hope that Gravediggervincent sees this before he makes a very expensive mistake.

The side blades on an Emerald crossguard saber are controlled by one of the 4 Emerald channels, and they do NOT have full color changing function.  They also are wired together, so you can not simply turn one side off via the Emerald driver, they are not controllable individually.

If you want to have a variety of color choices for all three blades, the method that works is to get the Emerald driver and white (Adegan Silver) side blade LEDs, plus color discs or photographic lighting filters, such as the LEE filter swatch book [url]http://shop.leefiltersusa.com/Swatch-Book-Designers-Edition-SWB.htm[/url] ([url]http://shop.leefiltersusa.com/Swatch-Book-Designers-Edition-SWB.htm[/url])

The best method is to find a filter that you like in the side blades, and then try to match the main blade to the filtered sides via the Emerald settings.  Caveat to that is that some filtered colors simply cannot be matched to a satisfactory degree with RGB, but you can get a very wide variety of excellent matched colors.

Again, and this is very important, you cannot change the colors of the side blades in an Emerald crossguard saber via the Emerald settings in the launcher program, if you want to have the ability for matched blade colors in a variety of colors, AS side blades and Emerald driver, plus filters or color discs is the ONLY satisfactory method for a stock saber.

I hope that Gravediggervincent sees this before he makes a very expensive mistake.


Sorry I misread that. I was referring to the ability to choose LED colors for each of the blades when configuring the saber during purchase, because you can choose the blade colors there, but shade is right, once they're configured in the purchase, the left/right blade LEDs cannot be changed through the Obsidian Launcher software for Emerald. They're fixed similar to the illuminated AV switch, so the only way besides using filters as shade described is to send it back to have the leds swapped out for different colors. Only the main blade's LED can be changed through the Emerald driver.

Well, UltraSabers you got me!  Granted I waited until super last Minute. Ordered a Sentinel Staff (Stunt) and an Emerald Obsidian V4 Aeon LE V4. I really shouldn't have but the Raffle and well the free initiate, My Prophecy V3 is amazing so I said why not! I hope my tax returns are a high as I think they are going to be!

Best of luck! That is an admiral reason to want one! I am hoping to get one to use as a second to lend to people while taking pictures at cons. So many people want to borrow mine and its awkward being a jedi without a saber in a picture! this way maybe I could lend them an awesome one for pictures :-p

You know what, that sounds really good. If I were to win one of them, I'd give it to a good friend who also happens to be my cousin who has wanted one and hasn't been able to afford one with car repairs and other challenges in his life. That would be priceless to see the expression on his face.

The quickest way to figure out if the raffle period is over is to look at the US front page.  If the raffle banner ad is gone, then the raffle is over.

BUT...posting of the winners list might take some time after that.  Longest I've seen is a day or two, IIRC.

I should add that the only time I've seen a delay longer than posting the winners the morning after was when US were still on the road for cons.

Thanks for that, although it'll be a while before I decide to get a crossguard saber. Still, that's kinda lame, kinda defeats the purpose of an emerald saber.

It only takes a little bit more effort and time than fiddling with the Emerald settings on a conventional saber.

If you're talking about using pulse to have blade flicker, that's absolutely doable with the crossguard sabers set up just like I use mine.  Flicker is a function of brightness, and so the side blades can flicker along with the main blade by setting the pulse rate to a pretty fast rate and different brightness levels for the different channels in use.  I find that for colors at the longer wavelength end, about a 100% - 80% brightness flicker works well, while colors further toward the other end of the spectrum look best (IMHO) at more of a 100% - 90% setting.  For mixed colors, just work out the proportional values.

Presto, blade flicker for all three blades.



On the other hand, if you want all the blades to pulse to different actual colors, then, yeah, you can't do that.
