I am thankful for this thread, but I first had to experience 'saber owning' for a while before commenting.

After having spent well north of $2,000 in a few short months, there's no argument that I like it here Wink  I will admit, however, that I've been eyeing a saber from 'the other guy' whose name looks like a 'w' when you put the letters together.

This particular saber has a very sleek, simple look and offers leather wrapping in a few different colors.  I really like the whole 'chassis' concept to protect the innards, and I would really like more D-ring clip options with pommels and hilts.

Also, I have no problem with the larger diameter of US hilts.  I fully understand that a slimmer profile is easier for spinning/dueling, but they also look kinda dainty to me...like not something a Sith would wield. 

Finally, why would I tie up $600 for 3 to 6 months??  To me, that's just insane and completely turns me off to the whole idea of owning one of 'those.'  Yes, they might be regarded as the apex of boutique quality by some, but 3 to 6 months lead time?  This isn't a freakin' organ transplant!  SHEESH!!

If US offered something similar to the saber described above I would never visit another saber brand again.  And once more, thank you for asking.  There's a lot of value in a thread like this, and it engenders a lot of respect from customers.

I saw them online, but not on US website. I like the second better myself. They could do their own twist/inspired version of it.
I'm leaning more towards the first simply because it doesn't look like "more of the same".

Agreed, but the switch type is what looks good to me. The AV switches work fine for this, but different switch types would interest me much more. Most Continental United States lightsaber crafters use the AV switch for commonality of parts and ease of installation, but I would not mind at all using a micro switch, or even several for different functions of the lightsaber electronics, especially for the Diamond controller. I've dabbled with micro switches and they work fine with the Obsidian v4 and Diamond controller.

Mmmm. Tactile switches. Recessed. You know that guy, the one on YouTube and FB who left recently and shocked the whole community, deleted all of his video reviews and how-tos... he had made some recessed tactile switches that fit in the AV style switch holes. I had to replace the AV switch on my 16 yr olds Aeon and used one of those. They're great. Ultrasabers should totally start making/using those.....

Me neither..... not a word about chasis...

BUT I DO WANT PARABOLIC BLADE TIPS!!

Soooo...was there some colossal and controversial blowout before I came around to the neighborhood?  I'm a relative newb here, could you shed some light?  Why is 'chassis' a hot potato?

Alright, I stumbled onto a thread showcasing someone's new Frankensaber, and I got to thinking: we need a thread for just Frankensaber pics. I need suggestions of where to place it. I'm thinking in the Gallery, but I'm open to suggestions.

Wait... Are you REALLY asking people to tell you where to stick it?

Well, after an invitation like that, I'm going to have to say the Gallery.
