I received this a few days ago, thanks to the help of the moderators of our Lightsaber group here in the philippines. This is my first ever Lightsaber(aside from the old Kenner Vader saber from decades ago). It's a pretty long hilt, 15 inches. I was originally gonna go for the 32 inch blade, but when i read through the forums and inquired through their facebook via PM, i decided last minute it should be 37 inches, because the length of the hilt would make the 32 inch blade look a bit short. It's okay though, i've been practicing spins with a longer saber(a blue PVC pipe).

The blade looks great even in daytime, though i didn't expect optics to be different. In person, it looks like a full rich blue blade, but on camera, videos and photos, it looks like the original lightsaber from the films, white with an outer glow color.

Can't wait til my ankle sprain heals up and take this baby for a full-on improvised form demo :woohoo:

Just wondering how the length feels? I'm 5"7 and would usually go for the 32" blade. But from what you're saying the Archon hilt is pretty deep so maybe the 37 is better.

it's very long, a 37 inch blade on a 15 inch hilt is like a mini-staff haha. i've had some difficulty spinning it because of the length and overall weight. takes a little getting used to. i'm 5'9 tall

I went for the 37, but I do have a 32 with another hilt as well so I can always swap blades if it gets to difficult. Hopefully I get used to the length tho..

Thanks for the advice.
