Hey all,

Got my hands on a warrior tier Chosen in Medium Blue. 12w with the li-ion rechargable setup. 37" blade.





A brief review follows.

Okay so i recently decided to get back into saber swinging after a long time away from the hobby (sold off all my previous toys)

What i decided on is a chosen, warrior teir specifically because sound drives me nuts when im training. Ill get sound eventually, but for now, this is what i chose.

Pretty basic. Nice clean hilt, havent measured it but im pretty sure its about spot on for the 12" mark.

No sharp edges, battery setup is well put together, sits very snug in the hilt no wobble or rattle or move ment when swinging.

Powdercoating is nice and clean and even, its almost too pretty, probably going to do a bit of a luke v2 sort of weathering to it

I love the thin neck, its a nice one piece neck and emitter thats set into the hilt with a set screw, and i believe might also be threaded, id have to take it apart to be certain, not that i want to.

I love how the second switch hole, has a nice clean machined dummy switch in place, and i feel its a great way for them to plug the hole and still only need to have one style of body even for single switch non in hilt recharge setups.

The Led is sunk into the body itself, with the neck in there just above it. The thin neck is actually fairly wide which is nice, and the interior of the neck is actually lined with a reflective piece of film, which is a very nice touch. its in there quite snug and does not move around at all.


Only thing i can think of to change, even a little bit, would be if the emitter was a half CM taller, just to give a weeee bit more grip on the blade. I actually really like the way the blade holder is set up just because the emitter gets a grip on not only the inside, but the outside of the blade as well.



Unfortunately I did not get to play with the saber nearly as much as I wanted to last night when it came in....as it was pilfered by my girlfriend who now wants one of her own and had me looking up as she said it "badass female jedi" that she can cosplay as (Yes im a very very lucky man)






Edit# 5648548155618 ...... stupid thing is only letting me add the one photo, not entirely sure why, even going back in and editing the post....it never actually saves the additional photos

Saber and color looks great! Thanks for sharing it. At this point, if I were to buy a complete hilt from SF, the Chosen would definitely be it. Somehow ASP has completely changed my outlook on thin neck sabers. What kind of finish did you get, standard?

Very nice saber choice. Love the color.

Standard finish. Im going to do some custom painting on it eventually to make it look more of a relic....and try to get these photos loaded.

Looks great! I've heard naught but good things of the thin necks and this just adds to the clamor. I'm so glad they added an apprentice thin neck as well. Also always nice to see that medium blue :)

Well that is nice! Glad to see one finally posted here. Could we maybe see a close up picture of the hilt? We see them on the website, but it's different when we finally see it in your hands. Nice purchase!

When did you order the chosen?

I can't figure out how these "new" sabers are being produced faster than ones that have been on order for 10+ weeks.

That being said, wow that blue looks great, If i can stomach the wait again, the chosen in green will be my next buy along with a bastion in purple.

My guess (and it's just a guess) is that they went into production prior to announcing them and so had stocked hilts ready to be wired (or not) BEFORE they were put up for sale. Everything else must be made to order.
For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.

I sure wish I had known, I would have waited 3 more weeks and then ordered the new hilts. :(

A lot of people ordered the new Apprentice Hilts through SF Customs. Many also just went and picked one up from the showroom. That is how you have seen so many so soon.
