The forum won’t allow you to use links to what’s considered the competition, DV. So if you notice, the link as been redirected

The link is completely dead now actually, goes nowhere.

I thought TCSS was allowed? I guess I'll just stick to the other forums where you can actually communicate.

We can talk about TCSS and their stuff but the forum is set to redirect any and every link that points to parts for sale

hahaha. so, in effect, they're pushing people to the competition by forcing some of us to find different places we can even talk about things, which subsequently introduces us to competing products.

Well nope.  Infinit did say that we could talk about them just fine.  

At one time links to TCSS did work, but once they began selling complete hilts, it no longer worked, I believe.

Don't get too worked-up.  We all do know what an LED star looks like, and that custom ones can be ordered from there - other places too...

Also, if you do in fact wish to share links, rather than just explaining an item, then other saber groups and forums certainly do exist.  There's a few good ones on FB actually, and UltraSabers belongs to one of those too. Smiley

yeah just seems kinda ridiculous TBH lol. you can talk about TCSS but not link them? also why would Ultrasabers sell empties but not their Emerald/Diamond controllers? seems like they put a lot of customers in a weird spot where they own an Ultrasabers product but Ultrasabers doesn't officially endorse using other products - so what is the point of the empties? stunts/Obsidian builds only? its just kinda ridiculous

I'm willing to bet that US would do it - if you asked very nicely (read: beg) - and paid for it. Tongue


For sure, I think they'd be willing to work with a guy if a special request was made for a tri with flash.

I hear ya.  It is different, and you aren't the first one to say so.

Hey, I don't make the rules; just abide by them. Wink

I look at it like this:  Let's say this is a restaurant, and the maitre'd & chef (Deep & Ultra) say that they don't want ads for other restaurants at their tables.  Other places might allow them, but they don't want that at all.  

Alright, fair enough.  I'm still going to eat here though.  The food ain't bad, the service is spectacular, and the prices are great....lol

Anyhow, the OP kind of already said that he didn't care about FoC, so we're both beating a dead horse on his thread.  LMAO!

Sorry Malik.

All of my tri sabers are ridiculously bright like Infiniti said. Also go with ultra edge blades I'm sure you know. Guardian blue is generally dim near the tip i find, but still looks great and movie close visually to me, tri or not. I cant tell if the one initiate v2 Igot for free is sunriders destiny or arctic blue, but that's only two diodes, a brighter blue and consular green, along with violet amethyst which is guardian blue and a shade of red(unsure) mixed, and both are way brighter than guardian blue tri or not I find. Blazing red and consular green are crazy bright, without tri, but still better with.

I would just go with tri for every saber, even if a light goes out every now and then, which in my Intimidator tri consular green it does, there are still two dedicated lights, and I believe it depends on how close to being dead your batteries are and how tight they are taped in the battery holder. My violet amethyst looked like a sith saber at low battery haha :p

I can't imagine FO in anything BUT Tri....

I have had it in both 'styles'.  To me, the "normal" FO appears dim.  In TriCree, it is much brighter in appearance and becomes a very vibrant color.

But there are times when the normal LED is superior, IMHO.   Arctic Blue (AB) is one of these.  The TriCree AB is a great color, but it carries a green tinge to it.  The AB sabers I've gotten in non-Tri Cree are a pure, ice-blue color without that green shading.  And since it is a mixed color, it is also very bright.  I don't notice a significant difference in observable brightness.   

Now, that being said ... I like the TriCree AB color a LOT.   I would just not call it AB.   I'd call, maybe, Light Aqua...   Its firmly between AB and SRD.  :-)

I am pretty sure most of the other "mixed" colors - VA, SRD, and the various "forum" colors - cannot be generated with TriCree either. 

So there's still a lot of reasons to love the normal LEDs and even favor them.  :-)

I just got my DSI in tri-cree arctic blue. It is amazingly bright. It literally lights up an entire room. Much brighter than I thought it would be. I am now a fan of the tri-cree.
