Hey all! Figured i could add to the sparse reviews here on my brand new Dissident.

This thing is gorgeous. I picked it because it looked like something that would be a good dueler and something that a jedi on tatooine might carry with them.

First off, the leather is large enough for two hands if you want though a grip around the choke (just below the emitter) is quite comfy too.

With a 32" blade, the balace point is at the end of the emitter, just beyond where the blade comes out. The switch is in a nice spot too.

Fantastic to duel with, the saber feels very sturdy and absorbs a lot of the impact from the blade.

Overall, 10/10. Though the cloth has come off, I intend to wrap it around somewhere. Also- the pommel liked to come loose but I just swapped it with my Arbiter pommel and it works fine now!

Saber, charged with the blade in in a lit room!


Close up with blade on!


Choke/Emitter


Body/Pommel (I swapped my new Arbiter Pommel here as the black ring likes to come loose)


Blade Plug


Hilt


Comparison to Arbiter



Seriously, I love my staff but I have a hard time choosing between the two for choreo/dueling because they're both SWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEET. I'm surprised at how comfortable this feels/is for dueling and really just swinging around too. If you're considering grabbing this saber, do eet now!

Any specific questions or photos- just ask!

I love to hear when someone has their expectations blown the hell away! Fortunately for me, it is a fairly regular happening in these parts! :woohoo:
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

I'm glad to see another positive review of the Dissident! Can't wait to see the photos you take, this is definitely one of the hilts I'm most looking forward to ordering, once I can decide on a damn wrap!

It was between this and the Exalted for me... after seeing the Exalted in the showroom, I'm still hoping to get one at some point but I have NO regrets on grabbing this baby. First saber I've picked up and swung around that matches the Arbiter in comfort while dueling- and I like the Arbiter more than the Gladius.

Nice looking saber. Dissident is slowly making it's way onto my wanted list. :P

If you can't decide which one to use for dueling, why not dual wield with both sabers?

Pretty old topic here. I think dual wielding a Staff and a Saber would certainly be challenging...!

I was meaning more about just dual wielding with the Dissident and Gladius, but yes it would no doubt be difficult to wield a saberstaff and a normal saber at once.

Hi Eddlyss64,

I think =Ottomatix= may have missed your concept idea of dual wielding the Dissident with a Gladius earlier in the thread. He was just pointing out that the photo shows a Dissident and an Arbiter Staff (not a Dissident and a Gladius saber).

Kind regards,

For Tyeth

Just buy a Gladius, couple it to your Dissident, then channel your inner Pong Krell. Everybody wins!
