Let me start by saying this hilt is extremely comfortable to duel with!
I love the windows on the front and decided on the Dual Tone finish.
I initially go it in blue, but the recharge port started to go bad, and I am too impatient to warranty it, so I took matters into my own hands.
I put a Crystal Focus 8 in there and it isn't the loudest, but Probably the best sounding hilt ive dueled with.
Soon after I had the bright idea to wire up quick connects, but realized it was a hassle, So I opted for an rgb setup.
The windows on this hilt absolutely makes it for me. they look amazing.
It is the most comfortable hilt I have dueled with (US Standard issue, Prodigal Son, US Graflex, US generic, and a Graflex 2.0)
I actually polished the aluminum to have a chrome finish as well.
I'm highly debating getting another to have a sister saber.

Great Saber! Looks very smooth and comfortable. Congrats! :-)

How are you liking the RGBW? I've been wanting to tinker with one. Does mixing white with the other colors make them brighter, or lighter in hue, or both? Said differently, I was wondering if red + white makes a "cream sickle" strawberry red or if it makes it more orange. I'm just trying to get my mind around the difference between the RGBA and RGBW in terms of color mixing.


- RGBA+ Monarch, FW Epoch, Juggernaut, Exhalted

I think the RGBW has a much more satisfying FoC effect, but the white tends to have a brighter/paler color. I feel like the white tends to wash out as well, but not too badly. The FoC is probably best with RGBW as opposed to RGBA

This looks great! I have a couple of Epochs, 1 champion and 1 hero. I am debating whether I want to sell the champion one eventually or maybe upgrade the soundboard myself - probably a CF8. Did you go with 3.7v or 7.4v setup? Also, did you use a chassis for your internals?
May the force be.... don't do that.. not on the rug, man
