Does anyone have a black hilt finish for the acolyte? THis is my next saber purchase but im not sure weather to go with black or weathered finish, i tried recreating it in the saberparts but im sure it looks a lot different in real life. Can anyone post a pic if they have ple? thank you so much in advance

I don't have an all black one. But.....

I don't think that hilt would "pop" the same way it does in the other finishes with the deepness of the grooves and rings. That's just my $0.02 though.

Opinions vary.

The Bastion and Sentinel both look fantastic in all black IMO, if you are looking for an apprentice line black hilt.

With the right wrap, the Disciple could look great too, since you'd get a nice contrast or highlight with the wrap color (it's basically the wrapped version of the Acolyte). For instance, if you were going for a dark side look, A dark red wrap on it with a black finish would look outstanding.

Was going more for a light side amber

Thank you so much, it looks pretty good in black, again thank you, also quick thing is it compadable with quick connects?? i want this saber to be my multi colored customizeable one and i plan to swap colors out based off of just like spinning it around to dueling, and im not sure if it is, since it looks to be a thin neck hilt

It's should be fine with the QC setup
There is a decent amount of space between the switch area and the emitter housing through the neck for the QC connectors to sit down into.
