Since before recorded history, weapons of war have been wrapped in leather for added grip, control, and comfort. Why should a saber not get the same treatment? Introducing our latest variant of the Combat Class Havoc: The Battle-Wrap Edition Havoc! Taking one of our very popular Havocs, we did some lathe work to remove a good amount of aluminum from the lower half of the hilt to make room for a nice, tight, spiral wrap of lambskin that goes from pommel to almost the switch, giving a large surface area of awesome leathery grip. Great for the duelist, or anyone wanting a rugged looking weapon, the Battle-Wrap Havoc is sure to become an oft picked up saber in your collection.

I bought a battle wrap Havoc with custom powdercoating in a recent RTS, and I can honestly say that very few purchases I've ever made have left me happier and more satisfied. Vader's Vault are true masters of their art. Even under the most intense spins and strikes, nothing inside the hilt moves and the battery remains secure. Externally, the hilt is simple and beautiful, with touches of color in just the right places and without unnecessary obtrusions or obstructions to handling. The balance is spot on with a thin walled blade, and the leather wrap ties a sci-fi movie prop to weapons of our own history. The soundboard detects every swing and clash and is plenty loud. Although I did not choose it for the hilt due to the RTS, I am so glad that my Havoc came with an RGB LED, as the flexibility and options that I have at my disposal are amazing. I'm truly pleased with my battle wrapped Havoc and would highly recommend it (with custom powdercoating or as is) to anyone.

This is the overall best lightsaber I've ever touched, I also have a Dark Havoc & a Rev-N. This thing is so light it almost defies gravity- you can toss it around like lunch!!! I was skeptical about the wrap, but having felt it I would never go back. It's not quite as easy to grip by the pommel as the Dark Havoc and you lose the choke point the non-wrapped Havoc has, but in essence the entire wrapped section consists multiple of choke points. It also doesn't have the balance/counterbalance thing happening that the Rev-N does, but the grip right below the emitter is more than adequate. I'd say if you've got some practice swinging around lightsabers any shortcomings this saber has in terms of design are MORE than compensated for in terms of feel. I honestly don't understand why this saber isn't more popular- long story short, aesthetically it is beautifully simple and tasteful, and if you're judging a saber by feel exclusively you won't find anything better!!!

It is a wonderful saber.
Battle lap can be gripped firmly to suck on my hands.
Speakers are improved and sounds better than previous ones.
Very easy to handle and I am satisfied.

I had waited for 7 months and finally, it got to Japan! I ordered bomber brown leather and it fits the hilt very well. It is a special saber for me! Great quality is amazing! And, also I really appreciated their kind and quick response. Thanks to VV, my son and I have had great days with my son!

Wow. This saber is so lightweight but so tough, and the quality is amazing. It is exactly what I was wanting, and it looks great! The sound is extremely loud and movements are very responsive. I am extremely impressed! Now, the wait is very long. I waited 7 months, but it is definitely worth it if you want the best!

I'm very happy with it! Came just as ordered, and excellent quality. My only complaint is that the delivery time was advertised as 3-4 months and it took almost 7 to complete delivery.

First the customer service:
Ordering was easy and the web interface works well, navigates logically and I didn't experience any hiccups. The fact that these are built to order and thus will take time to get built and delivered was clearly stated and an estimated delivery time was given to me.
Communication during that time period was easy and clear and even though I was told things were stacked up on their end my saber still arrived within the time frame promised. They were packaged well and were not damaged in transit.
The reveal was dramatic. All my co-workers and friends have heard about these things for months. Ohs and Ahs all around and long-simmering workplace disagreements broke out into sword play, but nobody lost a hand or turned to the dark side.
The fit and finish on this saber is top notch. It is machined to perfection. The leather wrap is sophisticated and feels good in the hand. The balance is great, no parts feel loose inside and the whole saber is surprisingly light. The light and sound are crisp and clear and the flash on clash sounds great and looks stunning.
I ordered identical sabers with a coupler so they could be joined into a saber staff. The coupler looks great with the same quality lathe work as the hilts. It screws in like butter and doesn't obscure the sound too much. When assembled, the activation buttons on the two sabers line up exactly like one would expect on a saber at this price point.
Is it a bit spendy? Yes. Is it a long time to wait? Yes. Is it easily apparent why it costs what it does and takes as long as it takes to make? Absolutely. Quality costs money and takes time and the latest additions to my saber collection ooze quality like melting gold.
If you have the money an can wait for the construction time, you won't be disappointed.

So yes, VV makes the best production combat ready sabers out there. Brighter than US and louder. (SF does not compare in any category). And priced the same as US. What you get is better with the color changing option and sound font lock to correspond the sound you want with the color you want on the fly. Only down side would be the wait times, which are absolute killer. But once you have it in your hands, it is worth it. Just know it is about an 8 month wait no matter what you here. Maybe less but that's it.
