Hey guys, props to imperialknight23 for giving me this idea - he made a thread asking what Guardian Blue looked like in person, and it got me thinking.  We all post reviews and rave about our favorite colors, but pictures and all don't really give a good idea of the actual color (as you all have noticed).

I wanted to start a thread where people could discuss and give examples (pictures of color swatches or whatever) of what these colors actually look like in person.  That way, people won't be surprised or disappointed when they receive their saber and it wasn't what they expected.

Here are the colors we're talking about:

Blazing Red
Consular Green
Guardian Blue
Adegan Silver
Fire Orange
Sunriders Destiny
Arctic Blue
Violet Amethyst
Pyrestone
Sentinel Yellow
Dark Violet
Bane's Heart

Anyone with a good description of any of these colors feel free to comment - like I said there are comments all around the forum but I wanted to make a sort of definitive guide of the real life colors.  I personally feel that the regular Ultrasabers colors are pretty well represented by the picture on the main US page, but the "secret colors" are harder to describe.  Let's get this thread rolling!

I am very happy to see this thread.  Please everyone remember that our opinions on a color are just that, opinions.  If someone disagrees, don't take it personally.  For example:

I have seen and use every US color regularly available (working on the secret colors) and in my humble opinion Arctic Blue is the brightest (produces the most light).  Guardian blue to me seem like a very deep darker blue and less like a more cannon color, which is cool to me cause I LOVE BLUE.

Pictures and video don't do these blades and LEDs justice.  We don't have the technology yet to ACCURATELY capture colors this bright and intense on home media yet.  DOESN'T STOP US FROM TRYING THOUGH!

Consular Green


Guardian Blue and Blazing Red


Fire Orange


Adegan Silver

I thought of it while drinking some Fire Orange Powerade as I was reading this topic.

Those are shockingly good representations!  I feel like Guardian Blue is a hair darker than that, but the rest are pretty spot on - especially the Fire Orange and Blazing Red.

My Arsenal -
Blazing Red - Dark Initiate V2, PVC Omen, MLS unit
Guardian Blue - Phantasm V2 Staff (2 Aeons V2)
Consular Green - Dark Initiate V2
"Dark" Violet Amethyst - Liberator
Fire Orange - Fully loaded Dark Shock - On its way.



Blazing Red - a nice "evil" "Sith" red.

Consular Green -looks awesome in pictures, but I find it lacking in person.

Guardian Blue
- very bright, very blue, very awesome. 

Adegan Silver - Don't own one.  Don't plan to own one.

Fire Orange - On it's way!

Sunriders Destiny - I really like this color, but I have too many "light side" colors so I passed on my latest order.

Arctic Blue - I already have a blue; but considering what everyone has said about it, I'll get one eventually, or atleast an MLS unit.

Violet Amethyst - Don't own it.

Pyrestone- I was torn between going with this or going with FO; the only reason I did go with FO is that I wanted some difference between my BR and FO and not a really close color that looked a touch off.

Sentinel Yellow - Don't own one, although the color is kinda growing on me.

Dark Violet - Found this to be the most disappointing color, it's bright, but just...not the kind of purple I was looking to get, it looks EPIC on camera though.

Bane's Heart
- I can make this color by adding a red filter to my Liberator in Dark VA, I like it better than the standard dark VA because it looks more vibrant.

The blazing red in my opinion, is EXACTLY the same color shown on the US page. I was disappointed when I received my blazing red raven because I thought that the color would be a more "Red" color as opposed to (this is just my opinion) an orangish red . But then, after looking on the the US page, I noticed that the color of my blade was EXACTLY the same color as shown. (You would think that I would have paid more attention to the color I was ordering. I was looking at the videos of the US blazing red color and referring to them as opposed to what was on the site. VIDEOS SHOW A DIFFERENT COLOR THAN THE ACTUAL COLOR IN PERSON! Remember that when ordering).

Now that I have realized that, I'm not disappointed in the color of my blade. I VERY happy with it Smiley

The red poweraid is a good representation of the actual color, but it is a little bit darker than the actual color, and a little more red. If you throw a wee bit of orange (I mean just a hair) in there, and lighten the color up, you have a great representation of the actual color. But I still HIGHLY recommend that you go to the US site and look at the description of the color of the blade. It is 100% correct (in my opinion).


P.S. I think it would be a good idea to post what kind of blade you have, because the blade can effect the color. I have a standard mid grade blade. Research told me that the UE blades would lighten the color up on a blazing red, giving a pinkish look to it (except when in the dark). So I went with the standard mid grade blade, which research told me it would stay true to the actual LED color. I eventually want to get an UE blade for nighttime dueling.

DJ's posts just made me thirsty.  Dammit....

Feels good to get props though.  I think though that future posts should clarify on certain colors such as RGB LEDs like VA, SRD and AB, and any other specialty color, what the color looks like when FRESH batteries are put it, and what type.  I can speak from experience that my SRD comes close to arctic blue when i put in fresh Eneloops, then about after 30 mins of cumulative use, it becomes that seafoam green people talk about, then when close to death, it becomes a transparent Consular green.  so that would be an important factor.

Side Note:  I realize there is another plus side to these bigger hilts, that have the option of Li-Ion.  When i got my prophecy all i could get was standard setup for my SRD.  Thinking about my next purchase of an SI with Dark VA in it, i would go with Li-Ion (but no sound) to have it maintain that color.  I would say that if people go with a RGB LED type color, and want that exact look, Li-Ions are the way to go, if it's available for the hilt.

All right guys lets keep this thread to its original purpose.  I wanted to help new buyers decide based on REAL examples, so thanks to DirtyJersey and Yega for explaining in detail.  Imperial Knight had a good point about the SRD changing color too, but I was hoping people would post some pics of real life colors that accurately depict what the saber color looks like.

Let's keep this on track.

guardian blue?  thats how i percieve it.  and the glow too.

also people may ask what colors may look like in person in ultraedge blades.  that factors in too in some people's assessment of color.

I'm VERY Interested in this thread, because I only own one saber (Blazing Red), and I'm looking at potential colors for my next.
Now, I noticed that BR's "True Red" isn't the same red as that powerade picture. It's not even that deep and vivid. Instead it's a combination of bright light red and dark orange. Sort of Red, but not at the same time. I think a "Sith Red" with a deeper hue would look truly awesome, but for now all we have is Blazing.
