Ok, I started perusing SF sabers and other sites about 5 months ago. I took a long time deciding on which style and company I would go with. I decided on SF because they have the best product for the price, good customization options and some of the best styles out there. I decided on the Epoch hilt after much deliberation.

First Impression:
- Awesome near-flawless machining
- Good weight
- Bright blade (although I've come to realize after i got a few more sabers yellow is not as vibrant as most)

After my friends got sabers we started dueling a bit with them. The epoch is an elegant design but a bit long and not so much suited to spinning and you definitely need gloves. I've cut myself up good on the two sharp prongs above the activation button more than a few times.
After a few minutes of some moderately hard dueling the set screw opposite the button comes considerably loose and requires tightening too often. I own 2 epochs and my older one has since been stripped of the threads on the aluminum body. The set screws they use are hardened and are much stronger than the aluminum.
All-in-all I give the epoch a 7.5 our of 10 based on my experience with other styles. The only points lost are from it's less than durable dueling capabilities.







Sabers I own:
Champion 12w yellow Epoch
Champion 12w green Fury
Champion 6w green Epoch
Hero RGBA Acolyte

  • The Jedi and the Sith are both a lie. The force is both, life and death. Good and evil. Black and white. May the forces be with us.

I really want to get the epoch, but the sharp edges give me pause. The new version doesn't have that problem. Should I wait??? I know the saber is long, but is that a negative???
I have a Acolyte Champion Purple 12w LED.
Soon a Disciple!!!

The length makes it a really comfy two-hander. As far as I can tell the epoch still has sharp edges too.

Its definately a 2 hander. Has great weight for spinning I think. I have yet to cut myself, and I spin it a few times a day.

Just wanting to know how long the saber emitter is because I am looking to get one for my wife but she is quite short and doesn't want anything that is too long. Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure I get what you mean? From the bottom of the saber to the emitter? (12"), from the emitter to the top? (1.1") or the length of the entire saber? (13.1")

Anyway, here's all of them!
Champion Medium Blue Reliant (First Edition)
Champion Green Epoc
Warrior Green Epoch
Warrior Red Acolyte
Champion Cyan Acolyte Saberstaff
