Using h2soys' rating scale
balance with blade on 3
Comfort 4.5
versatility 4
Precision 4
Power 4
Grip 2 handed
Blade Length 32" for a SF Blade

Well damn!!! I thought this would be strictly a shelf queen, but this really a comfortable hilt! If anything the rails help, but I do wish the screwed in the bottom of the rails. Kinda worried about those breaking. It's simply beautiful, the blade plug. being the cherry on top for aesthetics when on display. All this talk about the hilts being sharp, umm ok. The indented cutout part is a little sharp, but that's nit picky BS. IMO. I love it, can't wait to upgrade it.

The blade is really heavy compared to others I've used. It will work great for dueling, if the weight doesn't bother you. SF blades do appear to be the most durable. The LED, Indigo Freaking ing rocks.. I'm one happy camper..

Hey Mate, Congratulations with receiving your Reborn. As I know how beautiful the Hilt is (owning one myself) I would ordinarily *insert Jordon Moll here* and write: that, is Gorgeous however it seems more fitting to *insert =Ottomatix= here* and write: you forgot pictures of your new weapon, Son. ;)

SUbS, it's interesting to read about your handling feedback with a 32" given that the blade holder is quite generous. Have sampled 26"/32"/37" and personally find the lower end at 26/32 is ideal, however what actually explains this is the known history of your nerve damage which may contribute to it. You're gonna have to do some strength exercises since the Hilt is only going to get heavier as you upgrade it. How's the Covertech for you, user-friendly?

I agree with you about the grip spines/rails and find they fan-out a little with continued use however I personally consider it a single hand Hilt. Enjoy it mate, cherry and all. ;)

Yes it is Beautiful and gorgeous and hopefully J. Moll will be willing to do it. Not going to assume (publicly :lol: ) he will, so I'll just ask when I go pick up my Monarch. Pictures will come, but right now all I have is an E-reader

It likely is the nerve dmg, and yes I need to continue to improve the strength in that arm. I prefer to go 1 handed, but the SF 36" is a bit too heavy (to me)for that. Haven't tried the cover tech on my waist. Just checking the fit, I may have to buy an SF clip, the Hasbro is not working to well. They really did a great job, and the weathering wayyy exceeded my expectations

Glad it turned out so well! I feel like the Reborn needs to have either a purple or indigo blade.

If I recall correctly, the rails are supposed to be not as tight at the bottom for that very reason (some sort of stress relief or something).

Jaden Korr, Thanks man. I really dig the Indigo on this, very very bright. I hadn't thought about it being used as a stress relief. That makes sense, they'd really need to put 2 more screws on each rail to get around it. Thanks for making me think, it's good to know that

SUbS, Nice Avatar update, have gotten used to seeing your Nephew with his Vader Mask on and did a double take when I saw the new addition. Mate, read in the Etsy Thread that you wanted a Brass Covertech, I reckon when the upgrade starts to happen Jordan could probably make that happen and even apply a similar colour scheme to the cherry that is the Reborn Emitter Plug to carry the Brass Theme. I think that would look awesome. Saw a Shameem Video of Rebirth in a Brass/Gold Silver Dual Tone but comparably the SF Weathered Finish with Brass would be so much better. ;)

I was always afraid it wouldn't be a comfortable hilt. I'm glad to hear I was wrong. It's very striking indeed!

It's an Awesome hilt and way more comfortable than I thought. However I would only use it for fun or casual dueling, heavy dueling might be uncomfortable.

SuUpberStitch is here!

I know it's not Reborn related however noticing your new avatar my interest with Lilo & Stitch has been reborn and I need to make some convincing excuse to borrow that DVD off my Nephew. :blush:
