It's been almost 10 weeks since I placed my order so anticipate a long wait.

Good luck, hope you actually get something. I ordered a couple back on May 9th....nothing so far. By nothing, I mean nothing, no communication or responses to email, voice mail, FB, etc. Luckily my CC company has a generous charge back time frame. Hoping for the best, but if it gets close, I'm going to have to dispute the charge.

Got a question and I am hoping that I am posting it in the right place.

With the Summer Raffle going on right now, it seems like a great time to buy a saber. For the Free Initiate Saber, does the order have to be over 650 at the start or is the Initiate only for final prices over 650 (Example, the saber I am planning on getting is $684 base, and $615.57 after the 10% off)?

I could add Fedex 2 day to bring it to $652.92.

Also, how do I choose the size of the shirt? Or is that also random?

The total-based coupons apply to the product cost of the order, not to the shipping, or to taxes, if those apply.  Coupons issued during the same promotion can be stacked, so I would try to apply the 10ALLSABERS coupon as the LAST coupon, and see if it works.

That’s the best info I have, and it doesn’t answer all your questions.  Sorry about that; hopefully, someone else who has experience with the t-shirts will chime in here and help with that part.

I decided to make this thread (hopefully stickied) as a reference for newcomers to lightsabers for Ultrasabers and their products.  Like almost every first time buyer, I had a ton of questions, and a lot of time was spent on Google looking for the answers.  Well have no fear!  I will attempt to gather as many topics here to help you research and decide on your first lightsaber.

The Hilt

Choosing a hilt is completely personal preference and maybe a matter of money.  Do you prefer Style? Functionality? Value?  Will the saber be in heavy use? or will it adorn the wall or mantle?
If you are a looking to be a combat lightsaber enthusiast, the length of the hilt may come into consideration.  2-Handed? 1-Handed? Staff? Dual Wield?  Although there is no specific thread on hilt lengths you will be able to find some in the reviews section.
Saber Staves are essentially 2 smaller sabers connected by a coupler.

http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=1482.0
http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=1041.0

The Sound

The good folks at Ultrasabers do their best to meet with the demands of a lightsaber enthusiast.  They opened up for suggestions on what people wanted out of a soundboard in their lightsaber.  The result was the Obsidian(TM) soundboard.

The Obsidian
http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/z-sound-obsidianusb.htm

Soundboards are available as an option on select hilts because they need the room to fit all the electronics into the saber.  Also if you choose to go with sound, it is strongly recommended you consider getting the Lithium-Ion setup.

The Blades

UltraSabers prides itself on being THE name among combat saber enthusiasts.  This is due largely to their blades.  They have 2 qualities that any saber enthusiast would want.

They are extremely durable

Blade Comparisons
http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=666.0

And they are really bright (also due to the LEDs ultrasabers uses)
There are LOTS of pics and vids in the review section to display that.

Education on Blade Types and Opinions by Deep Himself
http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=3096.0

Some key questions to ask when choosing a blade.
Will it be for combat (sparring, dueling)? or will it be for display?
How long do i want it?  Ultrasabers offers 36" 32" 24".  They will also do a custom length for an additional charge.
Do I want a round tip or a pointed (bullet) tip? The bullet tip will increase lead, that is the build/processing time for the saber, hence also increasing the shipping time.

One last point here is that the blades are replaceable and/or interchangeable.  You can purchase multiple blades for different occasions.  

Also note that the blades when placed in the hilt lose about 1-2 inches so overall length of the saber will change.  Best way to test this is to buy a large dowel (not more than an inch thick and long enough).  Find the size of the hilt on the forums (usually in the reviews) and add blade length minus 1-2 inches.  Measure the result on the dowel and also mark the length of the hilt and cut the excess, and see how it feels.  You may want to cut a bit further up just in case you cut too short.  If that seems like too much work, you can invest in a yard stick. I would say average size of single saber floats above 36" unless you got the x-large 36" blade.


man, thanks for this! Smiley super interesting to read  Smiley

This is the wrong thread for this,
Unfortunately none of us work for ultrasabers,

For the video reviews ive seen recently, the are sending "new" designs out as mystery boxes, have a sort of frankensaber look of mixed parts.

Only portal for contact is info@ultrasabers.com
Good luck

It could be that you created the account, somehow signed out of the account, and then placed your order. Have you checked your email?

Out of curiosity, what is the shortest hilt you guys carry that is MHS compatible? I've been thinking of making a polearm and I'd want the 'emitter' as short as possible for aesthetic purposes.

This is not UltraSabers customer service.  This is a community of UltraSabers fans.  As such, “we” do not carry the sabers.

Look at the V3 sabers and compare the hilt measurements provided to find the answer to your question.
