New PS looks amazing... I have to ask... did they decrease the emitter switch height? It looks like they took a half inch off and I love it... hoping they give that treatment to the redeemer and also add the magnetic cover plate... does anyone know if the did this?

Yes, similar changes to the Redeemer activation box are coming soon. However, the chrome finish...not yet. If the chrome is deemed a success on the PS, then it will carry over to the Redeemer.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Don't have any specifics on that, but one has to think that it would be somewhat cost ineffective to manufacture two versions of the same part. I am sure they will sell through the remaining ones, but eventually, unless there is something about this version of the switch box that precludes it from being used in ASP configuration, chances are they will be the same.

That is me extrapolating, of course, so take it with a good sized grain of salt. ;)

Yes.

I ordered a Redeemer on January the 15th and as it is still not shipped, I asked Customer Service if my saber would benefit the new activation box and chassis.

India from CS answered "yes" for the activation box but no answer for the chassis !!!

I'm not a fan of the shiny finish of the Prodigal Son so if my Redeemer doesn't have it...no problem for me.

Thanks! That is actually perfect as I don't think the chrome only option on the redeemer would be well received... with the back grenade and grip, I think the current finish is just right!

I like that SF is going to micro tactile switches for some of their sabers. They open up a lot of possibilities to getting more screen accurate looks. (such as The Count) I have a Redeemer with the old style box, which requires a "deeper" press. It's not a huge thing or anything, but it's also not as nice as pressing the plate on my Graflex, with the micro tactile switch underneath.

The standard "brushed" finish looks really nice on the Redeemer, you shouldn't be disappointed by it. :)
