So here's a random post asking for opinions... or just to vent about my dilemma.
I received excellent service from SF and my first Saber "Vetus" was created in less than 2 months.
A champion edition and Amber 37" blade, long hilt and bronze stingray wrap.
Love it but more of a deserter's blade if you will.

Now I'm contemplating a true pair of sabers, true to the SW mythology.
Crystal Sabers would do great and the brightest options I would need to go champion again.

I'm not dueling so this is rather for spins and flairs, cosplay, pictures and deco.
I was thinking at a pair of Yellow Monarchs but I agree with the comments that spinning might be only possible from the center point. They both would look awesome as a pair but if I'm limited in movements....

I'm considering Jade Fire as a second option but this one too is reported to be awkward because of the box on the hilt.

So now I'm stuck.
Wondering if I need to consider a single saber in Amber again, to upgrade to Hero (but I read they're a little bit lower in brightness) although with the consideration of added effects.

Until I can build this killer, I'll have to keep wondering...

I have,

The Gladiator is nice and I have been looking at the Crystal version.
I'm not into the Thin Necks and those spring loaded crystal reveal.. not sure.

So either way, I believe the Monarch would be great choice cause of the beauty of it.
I'll still have my first for spins so I need to find some more comparison on the brightness between Hero and Champions sabers.

So turns out our Canadian economy sucks like that of Tatouine being 69% on the dollars.
I didn't get the Monarch on the topic it might be more of a show piece than one for spinning.

I debated Sith for a while but I can't see joining them yet but the power of the red crystal is tempting.

So I've chosen on one for now, which I'm happy to report will be the crystal champion Galdius (standard) - Artic Blue.
Will go nice with my current Amber.
But when we get our act together with our nations finances I'm selectin the Sith weapon from the standard Red Jade Fire.
Then the family should be complete. Unless the wife wants another kids for the ASP adoption program. "Oh hell, why not". ;)

ARRGGGG!

So I received the package yesterday after nearly 2 months wait time, which is quite reasonable.
I was mostly following the tracking number with USPS for nearly 4 weeks, being stuck in states but Finally it arrived.

I open the box, unroll the wrap to notice the beautiful Champion Gladius Saber.
But Wait... "Where's the Crystal"????

Turns out they sent the regular Gladius.
I would have not bought it regular like this but come on, missing the Epic Piece of this order gets me irritated. It's my second saber and double checking the order before shipping shouldn't be something I need to remind the company as a note on the Order, if any in the near future.

So now the SF Q&A section refers to "clicking" the RMA return and refund form.
Which is no where to be found nor any link to "click it". I find this process so unprepared.

Anyone know where I can find that form, as the return has to be done within 15 days.

The RMA form can be found on the main SaberForge website. You print it, fill it out, and include it with the return. More detailed instructions can be found on the site, along with the form.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Just to note - there is a difference between the GLADIATOR (Crystal vers) and GLADIUS (non-Crystal).

Thank you,

I have received a copy of the return form and it's ready to go.
The item will be shipped promptly.

I understand, this was the Gladius Artic Blue Crystal Saber (Champion Edition).
The main part was the beauty of the displayed Crystal chamber.
