I received my dual tone Vanquish a few weeks ago. Ordered from main site at launch in May 2016 this year.

An awesome saber, a true curved saber. Thank you for watching.

Thank you for the Up close & Personal Review of Vanquish, Ex66. I have remained apprehensive about the SF Curved Hilts (Bane/Vanquish) and after watching the Video it's certainly confirmed a few things for me, it's not the Hilt for me personally. It will serve as a nice addition to your Collection (and seriously, you may need to re-evaluate your display again 'cause having them lined up against furniture may not be a solution). :P There is one appeal this Hilt has for me, the Emitter Windows.

I had remained uncertain if this was cast as two halves (like Bane) and whilst the seam is near perfect by comparison, part of me was (prior to the close up) hoping for a mandrel bend or minimally, a press bend so that the Body remains as one solid piece, a true curved Hilt. Have you tried swapping out the Emitter & Pommel with your other ASP Parts for kicks? You mentioned you've had it for a few weeks now, have you had a chance to bang the blade against anything to determine the friction against the fork prongs (similarly, the alleged blade cracking from Disciple and Fury with the fork prongs)? I encountered a similar problem with the Emitter shroud on my Ascend so it effectively stays on displayed and removed during contact.

Great colour choice with BO (or Red Orange as the Site Lists now) against the DT Finish. Congratulations and thank you for sharing. :)

Curved sabers are that - curved and something different, just like cross guards. The design of the hilt is really the crux, just like if there is normal shaped hilt but if I dislike the design, I won't get it.

As for the Vanquish, it's all solid and I don't think I will swap any parts out. That's why we have ASP for that. :P

Not necessarily for permanent swapping-out, merely wondered (since a highlighting point when it was unveiled that the Emitter/Pommel were ASP compatible) if you too had the curiosity to see your ASP Hilts with a curved Body. I also sense (with your enthusiasm to Crossguards) that Dark Paladin (which looks Light) may be on your acquisition radar too? :whistle:

I was looking at the Dark Paladin photos. It's basically a Relic extended at the neck and body. The main and side emitters, with side emitter under-arms are identical. I have an idea ....

:lol: Your Powers are weak Old Man. If your strength with the Darkside was truly so, would we not have seen both your hands driving the levitation or even Saber activation by Force (instead of finger force)? :P
Was 'out-of-camera-view Lefty' used with the packing polycarb inserted into the Pommel? :whistle: Or is Mastery actually achieved? :ohmy:

Awesome that Vanquish. Think I'm also warming up to this one besides the Exhalted. However, the budget restriction still lurks nearby so all I can do now is:
