You've asked for it, we listened, and it is finally here! The Photon Blade now in the 7/8" size!

Amazing! Ultra bright blade. I'm very happy with it!

Photon is a great way to give new life to a blue saber! Not only that, it's the best way to go longer, especially in 7/8 which usually necessitated shorter blades because the light aperture is smaller, thus brightness really drops off with every extra inch over 30-32.
Photon is the only time I really recommend going 36' on a 7/8 blade. One bonus of 7/8' over 1' in Photon is that you can just notice some coring effects in b/b/w 7/8' while in 1' I have never noticed any coring in b/b/w.
The caveat is you gotta love a Mountain Dew green saber.
Also, I never used bullet tips before photon because mirrored bullet tips tend not to light as evenly as rounded. I was really surprised by how well bullet tips light up in photon!
Neopixel is getting all the attention now, but photon really is a great way to give new life to your old blue sabers at a great price!

I mulled over getting this for months and man is it impressive. It gives off the most amazing light and has an almost eerie effect. It had me thinking I needed to change my contacts.

Amazing, super bright. Little bit of 1" thin walled blade stock as a adapter and it works with any 1" blade emitter. Looks really cool to have a thinner blade come out of a 1" emitter as it give the saber as a whole more of a classic trilogy vs prequel trilogy feel to it. Well done Vader's Vault, keep up the good work. Side note, I would love to see the enhanced day blades be made in a 7/8" size as well.

I purchased this blade along side a clear blade and there is no comparison. I let out an audible "wow" when I first turned it on. It is truly impressive. Very bright and full looking! I was using it with a blue/blue/white which works fantastic! You will not be disappointed!

Great upgrade in brightness if using a Tri-Cree BBW. I put this on my Graflex 2.0 and it's a real kick! The standard thin blade would drop off in brightness, though of course it was Blue. Though it did not have a mirror (using a shine through tip). With the Photon blade you get a more intense lime green which is even from start to end (34"). A nice little plug & play upgrade!

This new 7/8" Photon blade produces a beautiful, bright, vibrant green blade and is perfectly lit. The bullet tip is evenly lit and blends well with the rest of the blade.
This blade is a must have if you have a 7/8" emitter and a green blade!
Well done VV!

I bought 1" blade holders for all my graflex sabers to convert them just for a photon blade (and other options too, but mainly photon), and I'm SO thrilled this is available. Many Korbanth Hilts use 7/8" blade holders as well, which I love building and collecting. You will not be disappointed when you shine the bright blues through the blade, and you can get really amazing effects with certain color combinations doing RGB mixing, and if you are lucky enough to have a Z6, it's unbelievably fun to see what you can get out of it.
Thank you VV for making this!
