Okay so!! Here we go. I wasn't able to make a video right now because my phone is just about out of memory and won't let me film... I need to fix this. Anyway. So here's my review of my Acolytes. Here they are:



As some of you may be aware there was a coupler issue when I first got the sabers... that coupler is the proper length for the Acolytes. If you get one shorter you're gonna have issues because of the angles on the pommel sheath cover. Now! More pics!



Pretty red color.. very very bright.



And of course, staff form!!!





So! Summary!

Pros:

- Fantastic, comfortable grip. Good balance. Spins very well. Solid and stable in a duel with both 32" and 37" blade lengths (tho I did Crack a blade today..)

- Short hilt makes one handed grip ideal but long enough for a hand and a half grip too, making two handed combat optional.

- pleasing design is pleasing.

Cons:

- I had to pay money to find this happiness.

Oh sorry about that. I just realized I did word that rather poorly, I meant more that when I did a brief mock duel I cracked my friends US blade.

Hi Knytiri,

This staff looks amazing, that's exactly the setup I want to get for my first Lightsaber. I do have one question if you could help me out, what blade length is more comfortable? The 32" or the 37"?
When you ask for trouble, you should not be surprised when it finds you.

For a staff, I would definitely recommend 32" blades. The 37 are just a bit TOO long. If you're short, or want even easier handling, cutting them down to 30" wouldn't be a bad idea, or going for the 26" blades.
