Title: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Deep on July 29, 2018, 09:34:22 PM
We're extremely excited to present this one to you guys- it has immediately become one of our favorite sabers in the arsenal, and we're sure you'll agree.

Top to bottom, this saber is packed with features that we've been itching to outfit a single saber with for a long time.

Say hello to one of the most beautiful emitters we've ever crowned an Ultrasaber with. The Spectre's emitter rests atop the first rounded guard we've ever featured, and is available with or without the beautiful wrap-around vertical windows for a look of pure elegance.  

The emitter's features don't stop there. The Spectre is the first Ultrasaber that can be worn in two parts. We've designed the Spectre to accommodate a covertec wheel in the emitter so that it can hang from your belt independently of the hilt.  If you recognize this saber from it's inspired source, you'll understand why we're so excited to be able to offer this feature, and why we worked so hard to make sure it was included.

You've undoubtedly already noticed the body of the Spectre. You all asked us to bring more sabers with etching to the lineup, and we weren't about to hesitate to give you all what you ask for.  The Spectre has been given the full-pattern treatment, with an intricate circuit board look that's sure to turn some heads. For you purists out there: we haven't forgotten about you!  The Spectre's body is available in a classic black anodized finish for that clean tuxedo look that you know and love from Ultrasabers. Finally, The Spectre comes standard with a covertec wheel that rests centered on the back of the shroud above the pommel.

You Ultrasabers veterans know that our features and options don't stop there! We got such great feedback from all of you when we released our square and angled activation boxes, so we especially wanted to bring them back for The Spectre's hilt to really complete the saber's look.

And last, but definitely not least, we've capped off the Spectre with a great new pommel that really gives it the perfect balance you know we prioritize in a saber crafted for expert combat.  The Spectre's pommel features four cardinal direction ridges that alternate with the position of the sound vents and really compliment the vertical etching that runs the length of the shroud. The Spectre's pommel has been designed to accommodate a D-Ring for another option to be worn for cosplay (or any other night on the town).

The Spectre comes completely assembled and ready to go. The emitter and pommel are removable and compatible with TCSS MHS parts. This saber can accommodate Sound, Diamond Controller, and the Emerald LED driver.

That is a tough one.

Right now,  I'm thinking maybe SRD with AB FOC.

I'll probably change my mind, though.

Love that it has an LED screw to hold it in place. I know it is for a reason but it would still be nice to see this become a standard.

I have another saber with that combo and really like it.  However with the Spectre being such a bold saber... those color combos may be too soft or not dynamic enough if the circuitry model is chosen.  :)

Me too and perhaps a QD for other options as I don't like fiddling around with my sabers on a computer.  :)


I wonder if this is going to be a wide girth saber like the Fulcrum and if the open slats in the shroud will be uncomfortable without gloves.  Am already thinking of other emitters and pommels to swap out.  :D

Really for me its the Emitter itself I want.  But it doesn't seem to be for sale separately.  BTW  Can anyone fill me in on what Mass Effect has to do with this? Not knowledgeable of that franchise

Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: BatMike90 on July 30, 2018, 02:14:40 AM
The last couple of new sabers, were passable, in my opinion. The Spectre is a Wishlist saber.

Post by: scifidude79 on July 30, 2018, 04:21:36 AM
Seeing this makes me glad I'm waiting until I get paid next week to put in a raffle order. It was going to be a Dorinian, but now I see it will be a Spectre.  I'm thinking Sunrider's Destiny, V4 sound, yes to both windows and engraving. The only part I'm uncertain on is the control box, I love both. However, the switch will be black because that looks awesome. ;D

Edit: I'm thinking angled activation box so that I can see more of that awesome engraving.


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Infinit01 on July 30, 2018, 04:47:48 AM
I've been hoping that US would make an emitter with a Katana like guard to add to one of my sabers.  Now, I'll have to buy an emitter and the Spectre as well.  Looking forward to this!

I am with you.  I am having a hard time deciding between the two.


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: naeblis on July 29, 2018, 09:56:12 PM
I put this on the suggestion box /wish list a month or so ago.  This is amazing.  I love my Emperor's hand....but this may become my new favorite.  THANK YOU US!!!!!!!

Post by: Moderator Nightwing on July 30, 2018, 06:45:03 AM
REALLY nice job on this one.
Based on one of my all time favorite characters' sabers, and is a nice size too!

The detachable emitter is a nice touch; probably not a feature I will use often, but a cool one nonetheless.

My debate is which activation box to get.  Square is more accurate, but the angled looks more comfortable to hold.

Thanks for bringing such a great saber to us!

Now to wonder which design comes out next: a Mandalorian inspired saber, an apprentices dual action taser(or blaster?)/saber, or an imbalanced apprentice's saber?
(translation, darksaber, Ezra's first saber, Ezra's second saber :P)


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Zren Tobas on July 29, 2018, 11:50:37 PM
I already want me one :P Blazing Red, no emitter covertech though, square box for the more classic look, black av switch, no pommel d-ring, emitter windows =] Can't wait to get me one :P Just from the name its sounding more dark side to me if anything, but no engraving for me, want my saber to be all totally classic looking


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre

Post by: Saso Is-kor on July 30, 2018, 10:03:56 AM
If there was ever any doubt that US doesn't read the "Suggestions" thread on what sabers they should make, then put those doubts to rest. It looks utterly amazing, the many people asking for a Kanan saber are in some serious luck.


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Samhain138 on July 30, 2018, 10:51:11 AM
This ones a hit with me!  Wish I could visit an US both and see how this one handles!

Ordering today!

What better way to enter the raffle, what do ya'll think SY w/ FO, or DVA w/Silver? After placing in the last two raffles, I feel "obligated" to enter at least 2 more. I'm just torn between this and my Catalyst, a saber that has been on my wishlist since the beginning. This is just so different from there other sabers, it's a must. Just found out the wife is pregnant so I can't have both I guess?


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Infinit01 on July 30, 2018, 03:19:51 PM
Iím leaning towards the SY.  Been wanting one in that color and I think itíll look sweet


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Stone37 on July 30, 2018, 03:26:47 PM
NEED!

I don't own a saber with flash on clash, and this will be the first. Do I go with Guardian Blue or Arctic Blue with Silver flash on clash? The videos I've found are not giving me a good comparison. HELP!


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: Zren Tobas on July 30, 2018, 03:32:40 PM
Gonna try and go for one this week =] Tempted to also get an extra pommel with the d-ring for my Dark Sentinel as well :P

That is a beautiful piece ! You nailed the look and feel of the inspiration !
I'm saving for a down payment on a home so on to the want list it goes !
I'm thinking stunt, AS (no flash) with a UE HG blade.

Post by: Taegin Roan on July 30, 2018, 08:04:13 PM
Wow, what a great job Ultrasabers, once again. I think it would look great in either SY or an Orange. :D

EDIT:
I've decided I need two. One a Kanan replica (as close as can be anyways), and one with everything else.  ;D

Planning to get a nice high end saber with sound over the next couple of months, but the choices are getting harder and and harder. This one definitely goes on my future list regardless. It looks amazing!


Title: Re: New Saber: Spectre
Post by: hazard502 on July 31, 2018, 03:47:06 PM
The circuitry is too busy for my tastes so it'd have to be the black hilt body, no windows, square box and in a Tri-LED of some kind; prob GB  8)

Flamberge - 1.5"

I bit the bullet and ordered one last week.  And as usual, amazingly fast service, it arrived in UPS today!  No pics yet but this thing is gorgeous!  I got the etched circuit hilt.  Was skeptical at first but in person it really works. Love the windowed emitter, D-Ring is perfect. Only other comment (not a critism), this saber is ... large.  Very large. But it has a wonderful balance to it.  I plant to carry it with me to a Rebel Legion trooping event soon.

For the curious, it is Consular Green (first CG we had had) with MLS QR emitter, FOC SD, Premium Sound.  Really a beautiful piece.

Great job Ultra Sabres!

I plan to install Quick Disconnects myself. I started installing them on all of our sabers after I modified a Arbiter that we got in a Mystery Box a few months ago. I started installing them all before getting any extra LEDs from US and when I did order one that had QD installed, discovered that I had installed the connectors the opposite of how US does it. So instead of going back and redoing all of my work, I just get my new sabers without them and install it myself.

I plan to install Quick Disconnects myself. I started installing them on all of our sabers after I modified a Arbiter that we got in a Mystery Box a few months ago. I started installing them all before getting any extra LEDs from US and when I did order one that had QD installed, discovered that I had installed the connectors the opposite of how US does it. So instead of going back and redoing all of my work, I just get my new sabers without them and install it myself.

Nice!

Do you have a part number for the JST connectors that you and US uses?

Really for me its the Emitter itself I want.  But it doesn't seem to be for sale separately.  BTW  Can anyone fill me in on what Mass Effect has to do with this? Not knowledgeable of that franchise

Not sure where you are getting the shole mass Effect thing from unless you are talking about the name of the saber.  Spectre is the name of the crew from Star Wars Rebels... I only figure that is what it had to be because my husband plays Mass Effect quite a bit.

"Spectres" are also a type of special soldier/hero/diplomat/whatever in the Mass Effect universe.  "Spectre #" was the callsign system in Rebels also, but that's the Mass Effect tie-in.

It was this model that lead me down this path Iím now very happily traveling on. Came across the YouTube video by Emory and pretty much ordered one straight after that. Went the hole hog and got it with a diamond card as well. Love everything about it, balance is amazing build quality is stunning, really love all the detailed work with the circuit board effect on the hilt.

Have also set one of the memory slots for white light and no sound, so I have a very cool torch 😀

I have to agree,  that SY is very nice. O love my DVA. If anyone is still on the fence about the Spectre, GO FOR IT! You won't be disappointed. Quick note: I love the engraved feel of the circuitry pattern on the hilt. You can actually feel it, it gives the whole Hilt a sort of texture that is actually rather impressive. Wasn't expecting that but I'm very happy to find this little detail. It adds so much more depth to the Spectre.

In addition, Kanan's call sign is "Spectre-1". Interesting that Hera is really the leader of the cell, but that he's #1 to confuse who the leader is, at least that's what I've read.

I did get my hands on the Spectre at the US booth today, the engraving on the hilt feels even better than I thought, very intricate and unique tactile experience.  Also the hilt is not as heavy as expected and is comfortable as both a single and double handed saber.  Seeing various ones up close, I prefer the windowed and etched versions over any of the other variants.

Glad to hear it isn't so heavy, watching the first unveiling video I thought it was a prime contender for their heaviest hilt. It just looks so meaty.

For those of you who've held and Emperor's hand. Remember when you first saw it and you thought that is a really large beefy looking saber? You thought it would have quite a bit of heft to it and it turned out, it was very lightweight and evenly balanced. The Spectre is the same. Looks like a beast, handles like a dream. And there's almost no real weight to it. Well, actually enough to make you feel like you're holding a saber without having to work too hard to wield a saber. Stop considering it and go for it. You WILL BE HAPPY WITH IT.

Yeah it is nowhere near the weight of a Mantis or Malice those are some monsters (but I do like them), I think it is around the same weight class as a Guardian or Emperor's hand.  To me it is a comfortable weight that gives that real weapon feel like my Reaper.  Of course blade grade and length can vary how it overall feels.  I think I would personally go with a midgrade 32" blade for a Spectre but that is just me.

HA, Malik I was just writing this response when I saw yours, I agree completely very similar to the Emperor's hand type with this Spectre!

Compared to many of the US sabers, this thing is a beast and is twice as heavy as the Prophecy for example.

  The prophecy is considerably smaller, though...so that makes sense.  I have the Dark Prophecy, and there is quite a bit of difference in overall feel.  I used to fight with broadswords so the overall feel of the Spectre is really good for me....Emperor's hand as well.

I agree! I have practiced and competed in Iaido for over 20 years. The Katana is lighter than an English broadsword, but is still has very real weight to it. This is what I love about the Spectre. It has the weight of an actual sword.

The electrical pins are pressure fit into the hilt. To remove them I heated up the hilt so that the aluminum would expand more than a Pin. Then worked the pin out  I will be putting it back in the same way.

My Spectre is in DVA, and I have to say, it is pretty cool. With a 32 in blade, it is perfectly balanced. It's also very comfortable to spin and wield,  especially when I use a heavier strike against an opponent. I do feel like I have a real sword in my hands. If you're thinking about getting it, stop thinking about it and go for it.

Post by: digitalsithlord on September 26, 2018, 01:25:42 PM
I picked one of these up at DragonCon this year and will say I was pleasantly surprised that it was not as bulky as it seems to be in online pics.  I went with the basic, no windows or tech engravings, with my first every Arctic Blue blade with silver FOC.  The tech engraving was just too aggressive for my taste, but I absolutely love this hilt.  As stated earlier, this does feel like somewhat of a sword in the hands and the handguard is a nice addition.  I also was fortunate enough to get the angled box activation switch and not the square.  This was a purchase I did not think I was going to make until I saw it.  It did not have a recharge port, which I still want, so I will have to send it back in.  I did LOVE that this came with both a D-ring and cover-tech wheel on the hilt.  This saber could absolutely be Jedi or Sith easily.  I love my set-up and I love the plain black grip area of the hilt as well.  Sometimes plain is just fine.  This is a awesome lightsaber that I will highly recommend that you get, you will NOT regret it that is for sure!

Which do you prefer? I've actually been torn between the etching and no etching. On one hand I like the classic look, on the other hand, the etching is a great chance to get a saber that looks really unique. I have to say though I really just like the basic black and am leaning toward it. The etching looks a little too busy for me. I just don't know lol

Although the etching looks really cool, my build for it is without as it looks better to me with the main body not being as busy since thereís already a shroud covering most of it.  Itís just me though but I like how it looks without, it doesnít draw attention away from the rest of the hilt like it would with the etching in my opinion

Yeah that's what I thought. At the same time what are the chances to get something with that kind of design. I guess I'm only considering it as it's a design option the other guys don't really have so it makes it stand out more uniquely. But personally I guess I'm just old fashioned. I own a lot of black and just love a plain black look.

Do you have photos of it somewhere on here Infinit? Curious to see what your setup looks like.

Sweet!  :o That's actually the setup I wanted as well if I did go with the etching. Huh. So it might even improve the grip somewhat? After digging around I have seen others on the forum talk about how beautiful it is in person. I feel like that with the Guardian I just got. On screen I didn't think it was that impressive even though other reviewers had said the hilt was gorgeous in person. Now I that I have it, I see the appeal. Now I'm back to being on the fence with the Spectre engraving lol

Sounds to me like you both have made up your mind then. The etching is incredible I have to say. But it sounds to me as if the force and your heart are leading you both to the cleaner black finish. Problem solved. If your like me, the only thing  left to do now, is to save up the funds so that you can equip it the way you want to. Get this saber. Speaking as someone who owns and loves it, I can without a doubt, I wholeheartedly say, You will not regret it.

So very odd question. Does anyone know if the holes for the Activation Box is predrilled or if they are drilled after a order is placed. I would like a Spectre without a AB but can't seem to get in touch with anyone at US.

Just ordered my very first lightsaber and it had to be this one!  I went with a Diamond setup in Guardian Blue, with FoC to Arctic Blue.  I think the only thing worse than the long wait to save up for it is the wait for it to show up now that I've pulled the trigger on it!

I'm not sure why they look yellow. Fantastical as it is there real colors are 2 x Blazing Red; 1 x Guardian Blue

It might be because of the ProNeg Standard.

Personally, I prefer the engraving, but I think the saber looks okay without it as well.  To be honest, I think the reason you're getting your order so quickly is because you didn't get the engraving; I think those hilts are on backorder.

Could very well be.  I had thought that it could just be because the Spectre isn't as in demand as other similarly-priced hilts.

Personally, I also like the engraving, but it just didn't offer as clean or "traditional" a look as I was after.  If the circuitry had been cut into the silver parts of the hilt, as opposed to just the 'grip', I would have been all over it.

I actually prefer the non-engraved over the engraved.  As someone stated earlier, it does give a more traditional appearance and a cleaner look.  In my most humble opinion, the pattern just takes away from the simplistic beauty of this hilt, but everyone is different.  The only thing on mine is that I am starting to regret getting the 'D' ring as it can be a bit annoying as you swing it around hearing that clink clink clink noise of it rattling around.  This is a GREAT hilt though, as I am in love with the Tsuba on it.  I have mine in Arctic Blue, which is the first saber I have ever got in this color.  Let me say this is a most underrated color as it is stunning in person.  I hate that everyone is having to waiting on their hilts and I wish for speedy deliveries for all.

Totally agreed, personally.  Although it certainly doesn't look bad with the engravings.  They upgraded my Spectres to the D-ring pommels because the ones without them are on delay.  But from the photos, it looks like the D-rings should be removable, so I may just go that route if they're too annoying.
