I've always wanted a high quality saber ever since I was little and the only ones I really every knew of were the force fx for $100 but I could never get one and by the time I could they definitely weren't good enough if you can't duel with them and I never really thought about it again. Then one day I'm on facebook and a random ad for saberforge is in my feed. Custom sabers was the only thing I had to read before I clicked the link and started browsing. Luckily it was mid January so tax returns were right around the corner. I filed on the 31st and then ordered so I would know my budget and just dipped in to savings for the time. As soon as i saw the viper I knew it was the one for me. The claws just screamed dark side and I love dark side looks except the saber colors, I've just never liked red. I ordered a champion tier 12w cyan weather viper with quick connects and a 32in blade. I had 6-8 week lead time but after 10 week I emailed them and apparently the lead was changed to 8-10 weeks and because it's an estimate I knew I had some more waiting. This was also when I took a look at the colors again to see what i wanted my next color to be and I realized that I mixed up cyan and mint green when looking at the colors, so i emailed them and got that changed. Finally on the 12th week, tuesday night I got the email that my saber entered the build queue. I checked the shipping the next tuesday and it was on its way arriving on thursday. Now imagine my surprise (and the brick I shat) when I checked the shipping the next day and it said it arrived and was signed for while I was away. I don't live alone but when I asked for the proof of delivery I didn't recognize the signature but when i got home their it was safe and sound. This thing is awesome it's not too heavy and super bright. The only complaint is how loud it is and even then thats really only when you use it inside, it's perfect for outside and I've only tried it on low.

Pros: All the pros of having a badass saber
Cons: If you choke up to far the claws will get you but at that point you're grabbing the windows

All around 10/10 its beautiful and bright as hell and I can't wait to try it at night tonight. When I tried it last night I thought it seemed dim and when I handed it to my friend to use I coukd see it growing dimmer but it was bright right up to a few seconds before dying and when it was that dim it looked like a normal green which was cool

And now the pictures thats what you're here for isn't it.

Edit: For everyone I confused the color is mint green not cyan i just thought mint green was cyan when I ordered and I got it changed last minute. If you're looking for a teal like color its the way to go.

Love it!

As for the loudness of the saber, have you tried adjusting the volume in the in-hilt menu?

Beautiful saber! Congrats!

Don't forget to add some "Pros" and "Cons", as well as some 1-10 ratings on workmanship, brightness, etc. B)
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Woohoo! You don't see too many Vipers around here, but maybe that statement is becoming outdated. Congratulations, and good choice. Grenade grips, yum.
The above post may be subject to editing. A lot of editing.

I haven't looked at too many Vipers but this one looks great. The weathering looks perfect for this saber and I love the cyan color. Big fan of grenade sections (which I might have to do in ASP). The claws are cool and it looks like you can even remove them to change it up if you wanted. Have fun this weekend showing this bad boy off!

BigMagicMonkey, Congratulations with successful delivery of such a menacing Hilt. Illumination of the blade colour is very appealing and the wing span of the claws exudes authority. Thank you for sharing this beauty. How wide is the span and do you become conscious of them either during swings or duelling?

Yes I haven't even bothered putting it on high. And while we're talking about setting anyone wondering about swing and clash sensitivity settings 4 is good if the swing is any higher it does it with any little movement and if you put it at 8 or 9 it seems to make just one noise most of the time

Haven't dueled yet but I can imagine only noticeing them if the other person hits them but for spins I don't notices unless I'm choked up too high and they hit my hand
