PRODUCT INFORMATION

This is a new lightsaber hilt inspired by Master Depa Billaba. She was apprentice to Mace Windu and went on to teach Caleb Dume, later known as Kanan Jarrus.

This inspired design comes in a black and gold color scheme, absolutely beautiful. Even though the finish of this saber is not as durable as some dueling sabers, we still strongly recommend it for training. It is light and comfortable enough to train with.

VHC : This saber has VHC threads (Variable Hilt Component standard by Nexus Sabers), meaning it can be associated with parts of other VHC sabers and can accommodate VHC compatible accessories.

The pommel has a VHC thread (female) so you can remove the pommel cap and add a coupler (externally threaded / male). For the quick release coupler please note you'll also need an additional coupler (externally threaded / male) to act as an extender providing a male thread for the quick release coupler.

Like all of our amazing sabers, this hilt is made of aluminium 6063. Every saber boasts stunning finishes on a great build with strong materials to offer either the best reproduction of a legendary design or a very comfortable and yet stylish dueling weapon.

SABER CONFIGURATIONS

Here's a simple breakdown of our available configurations. See our "Which version to choose ?" info box above for more details.

  • 🥉Standard : the base model now with a Xeno 3 board, featuring rich sounds, lots of effects and customizable through a mobile app or via SD card. Standard sabers are baselit sabers with a lighter blade made for heavy dueling. Perfect if you plan on doing cosplay or stunt/duel performances or if you simply don't need the neopixel blade.
  • 🥈Premium : it's our most wanted option! The same brand new Xeno 3 board but with a neopixel blade. The high density LED strip in the blade allows for an amazing look and tons of visual effects. Now customizable through a mobile app and, as usual, via the SD card.
  • 🥇Deluxe : for the coders amongst you, completely customizable effects and styles thanks to the Proffie v2.2 board, here with one function button. There's no better neopixel lightsaber than this. If you like getting your hands dirty (mostly your keyboard) and mod the things around you to suit your needs, you'll love this !

DIMENSIONS
  • 📐 Dimensions of the hilt : 27,5 cm / 10.8 inches in length, weighs approx. 440 g / 0.97 lbs
  • 📐 Dimensions of the blade : it's our 1 inch diameter standard, then you choose between 72, 82, 92 cm (28, 32 or 36 inches) for the length. Polycarbonate thickness is 2mm for Standard sabers and 3mm for Premium and Deluxe sabers.
  • 📏 Recommended length of your lightsaber : a lot of academies and fencing federations request that the total length of your dueling saber stays between 100 and 110cm (39.4 to 43.4 inches). The blade usually sits inside the hilt for about 5 to 7 cm (2 to 3 inches). If you mean to use your saber in an official setting, be careful and choose the appropriate size, if you don't care for this, go for the longer blade length : 36 inches / 92 cm.

Key criterias for duelists is Handling and Weight, for cosplayers it is Style and ease of Maintenance, and for collectors it is mostly Style.

 

STYLE & REFINEMENT

Achieving great design or screen accuracy but with a little compromise for better dueling comfort.

4/5

When an original design meets a properly comfortable dueling hilt. A good compromise.

3/5
WEIGHT

Entering the world of sport sabers, this hilt is light enough to train with for hours on end.

4/5
MAINTENANCE

This saber either has a 2 parts core or a slide-out core with a Core Matrix Hub. Maintenance access is not too complex. Charging port is on the core but easily accessible.

3/5
XENO3 BLUETOOTH

MAIN FUNCTIONALITIES

All of our sabers provide the following :

  • Removable polycarbonate blade
  • Unlimited blade color choice through quick access presets or full RGB color picker.
  • Volume control from 0 to 100%
  • Smooth swing : these lightsaber are very motion sensitive and the humming sound of your saber reacts very precisely to every move you make.
  • Dozens of soundfonts and blade styles loaded in and possibility to customize and add your own (sounds and colors for Xeno3, full control on Proffie)
  • Hilts are built with aluminium 6063 and CE certified
  • ON XENO3 ONLY : Bluetooth capabilities and free mobile app control. Some sabers have weak connectivity due to the thickness of the hilt, see details in production description.
BLADE SPECS
  • Baselit sabers work with a 12W LED module in the hilt. Standard blades are 1 inch in diameter, 2mm thick and made for heavy dueling.
  • Premium and Deluxe sabers have neopixel blades, with a full length high density LED strip inside. Either 1 inch diameter and 3mm thick polycarbonate or 7/8 inch in diameter and 2mm thick, see their description for more precisions. The 3mm thickness is dueling capable although we do not warrant them for heavy dueling due to the probability of breaking the LEDs circuit inside. Additional blades can be purchased, offering different width, thicknesses and length.
  • The neopixel blades give you access to tip drag effect and smooth ignitions. Blaster effects, flash-on-clash and saber lockups are also effectively much better with the neopixel blades included in Premium and Deluxe sabers.
BATTERY AND BOARDS
  • The 3000mAh and 3600mAh batteries are rechargeable and provide around 1 to 3 hours of saber usage depending if it's a baselit saber, neopixel or proffie and the kind of effects you're using.
  • Always use a 1A 5v USB charger, never charge on a dongle, hub, fast charger, computer or console. Improper charging devices and power outputs will fry your board and will not be covered by warranty.
  • Charging the battery is either directly in-hilt if the port is visible, or beneath the pommel piece, directly on the core (either remove the grip section or slide the core out)
  • Every saber comes equipped with a recharge cable.
