Hi all! I finally obtained my saber! Much to my surprise, it showed up in a toblerone! They aren't extinct! I was gone at school and my mom signed for me and put it in my room. I was having a pretty down day, but this baby lightened it all up! (Especially with that 12+ watt :silly: ) Alrighty, lets get down to the deets ya?

Odered-2/20/16
Etsy shipping label printed-4/16/16
Received-4/20/16 ( :silly: )

I absolutely love this lightsaber. I love the grip and feel of it, perfect for a backhanded grab, Jar-Kai, single-handed, or two-handed. I have found that it is excellent for spins as well! Again love this saber. Some pros and cons now shall we? Cons first, so we end on a good note.

Cons

-Asked for a 32", got a 26".

-This hilt's retention screws are not dummy proof. Took me a half hour to find out that this saber had two retention screws. The big black knob, and a regular retention screw.

-Some scratching near the AV switch, as you can see in the pics down below. Not to big of deal, can't really notice when you are swinging it around.

-Some of the paint is coming off around the retention screws. Again, can't notice it when you're swinging it around.

-Shroud is a little loose, but I expected that, I know it is common with Phoenix's.

Pros!

-Everything else!

-The grip on this saber is freaking incredible. My guess is, if you life the grip on the Avenger, you'd love this as it has the same style hilt, at least the bottom half.

-This saber is friggin bright as bright! I took all of these pictures in a full lit room.

-This saber handles very smoothly. I am already doing flips with it and I have no need to wear gloves!

All in all? 10/10, would buy it again.

Nice looking saber, J! And nice review as well. Congrats on your new acquisition. Definitely glad I went with the 12W on the saber I bought.

Also love your "About Me" text. Just finished playing KotOR again for the fifth time a few days ago.

Well that looks beautiful J. Glad you finally got it! Saw you wanted 32, when we hang out I have a spare 32 I can trade you for that 26 if you want. Overall beautiful saber, and green is a great color choice. Congrats!

Wow, that is such a nice looking lightsaber! I love the sleek design and recessed details like the emitter and the grip.
You ordered in February too? Wow.
For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.

@MHM-I will take you up on that offer sometime soon I hope! Yeah, I just love the blue-green color.

@Gaelis-Thanks! I was surprised when I got it this early, especially since people who ordered mid-January are getting theirs now. Maybe because I ordered through Etsy?

Congrats MistaJ!

That is one sweet Saber you have there! That finish on the shroud is gorgeous, and the 12W+ WOW!
This Saber and your Mandalorian Cosplay, should make you centre stage at any convention you might attend in the future. I hope your Phoenix serves you long and well into that future,

thanks for sharing it with us,

For Tyeth

Cool saber. Thanks for the share. Does make me wonder what is up with the saber forge people though. I also ordered from etsy, and before you, and haven't received a shipping notice, though the etsy site listed a shipping number as of today (that of course shows nothing because its not shipped). I would think a first in first out build queue would make more sense, oh well.


Still glad you got your saber and that you like it. Thanks for the pictures.

Congrats on the awesome saber! Anything that has Graflex influences just rings my bell. Glad to hear it's comfortable. I wondered about that. Thanks for the review.
