@TheDutchman - don't listen to him, emitter windows all the way on either the Apprentice or Sentinel Cheesy, BUT not the Dominix Smiley

I don't know. I don't have them, and my Dark Apprentice is beautiful.


@jorussic, those are some beautiful sabers. How are you liking the Fire Orange?

@Jed - congrats!  Looking fwd to some pics and esp the "hilt change" you made to your new Dark Prophecy Grin Wink

Hazard, I do like how the Dominix looks, both with or without windows.  Having said that, respectfully, I think I prefer windows  Wink  But: to each their own  Cool

Absolutely!  My fav grip point is where the windows sit and that's why I'd go without but it does look sweet with them!

Oh good point; I had not considered the practical reasons to go "windowless."  On that point, which saber body would you consider the best for spinning, combat, etc.  I'm trying to work with my graflex (which looks great) but is somewhat difficult for me to utilize effectively (I figure that I can get another saber w/ a more ergonomic hilt and practice first with that to build up some skills before transferring back to the graflex  Wink).

The Ugly ;
My second prize win . . . . a Monarch . . . . cool setup, with CG blade, white FoC, v4 Obsidian (awesome), and an av switch (thank you US) . . . . but . . . . and I guess it had to happen at some point, of all the US hilts I've played with, this is the first time I can't find something to like about one of these hilt designs . . . I'm really trying, but I can't . . . Isola loves his, it's his most comfortable hilt, and he's already given me some tips on different ways to grip it, but, at this stage, I can't find a way to make it feel comfortable to me . . . I'll give it some time, and see how I go . . .

I guess, each of us have different tastes, and so far the Monarch is not doin' it for me at all, lol . . . there's a first . . . for me  Undecided


Finally someone understands!  The veterans know all about my pure hatred for this hilt, it was well known even before I won one as a first place prize in a raffle (I think US was trolling me, lol)  But i consider my opinion of this hilt to really hold weight more with people now because i have owned one and held it in my actual hands.  It's terrible to look at, and easily the most uncomfortable hilt I have ever held.  I could not find any way to hold it that wasn't irksome.  Now you understand why I was so.......perturbed when I won mine.

Sentinel . . . any variation you prefer!


And, if you really want windows, it doesn't matter on that one like it does on the Aeon / Dominix:

Winning? Is that what you think it's about? I'm not trying to win. I'm not doing this because I want to beat someone, or because I hate someone, or because I want to blame someone. It's not because it's fun. God knows it's not because it's easy. It's not even because it works, because it hardly ever does. I do what I do because it's right! Because it's decent! And above all, it's kind! It's just that. Just kind.

@Dutchman, but Blazing Red is empire kinda colors for lightsabers so more like you'll feel like you can run the entire galaxy rather than the empire Tongue

Agree and to add, almost any V4 series lightsabers ... amazing to handle and IMO nicer styling than the V2 / V3 hilts.

I prefer the V3 Aeon/Dominix/Initiate style over the V4 when it comes to looks but I haven't had any of those V4s in hand so I can't be certain about that assessment. The Sentinel is a great hilt though, looks good with or without windows and is really comfortable to hold.
