That is actually a non-ultra heavy blade.

Hey Xanon!  Glad you got a good green!  I haven't tried the greens yet, but my quest for a deep purple from a filter is, I am afraid, doomed to fail.  I have found a nice violet, though.  :-)

That yellow looks awesome. Someone needs to come up with a way to cut the Lee filters that works like a hole punch for paper binders, but sized right for saber blades.
I've had the US colour filters for awhile and had only tried them with a midgrade blade (my preferred type) and liked maybe 2 colours they produced.

Recently I tried using an UE midgrade blade and the results were vastly different, in a good way.  So many more colours came alive and very likely due to the different type of diffusion white polycarbonate provides.

Why I took so long to try this I don't know.

So I took pics with all the US filters in an UE midgrade blade.  There's more but I'll touch on that in a bit ...






























Ok, it's not all of the filters.  Some of them are so close in colour that on camera you can't tell the difference and those are more in the pinks/purples.  Speaking of which, the pink/purple filters are the weakest showing as very washed out and really not too pleasant to use.  The green/teal/yellow/ filters are much better - showing truer colour while at the same time being bright.

So if you're going to use a midgrade, the colours that work are yellow and teal/SRD and they look good.  The UE provides more range with these particular filters.

I've finally gone and ordered a swatch book from Lee Filters.  For those that don't know these are light filters for stage use, they can perform under high heat, are bright while keeping truer colour.  There will be an overwhelming amount of shades to try and I plan on updating this thread as I experiment with them and with different blade types.

It's something different to try and I think you'd have a lot of fun with the variety and quality.

I have a cree-tri in adegan, as well. I couldn't make up my mind for color and wasn't ready to go for emerald/diamond.

The Lee and Roscolux filters are loads of fun! Figuring out which ones have the best brightness/color has been a bit of an adventure. Looking for a red that comes off as just red (and not pink) has been difficult. Other colors have been pleasant surprises.


This is Indigo #59. About as dark as you can get. Almost (but not quite) like black light. The reflection in the window is what it looks like more than the direct image.


Chroma Green #389


Deep Straw #15 (my favorite)

Now I'm thinking I'll develop a Sentinel character/outfit just because I like the gold so much.

Nice eratosthenes

I found 106 - Primary Red - to be quite red instead of pink
