While our never ending experimentation to get other Photon blade colors has had some set backs, it has also given us other cool products to offer you. What makes these 'Enhanced Day Blades' different than our normal Day Blades? Well, while they don't give the 'wow' factor and hug brightness increase that our Photon green blade does, these new blades to carry some interesting characteristics that will 'enhance' your experience either trooping or at a Con/event. First, they do offer a slight brightness increase when used with their resepective colors. They also do not suffer from over head lighting glare. These blades do not diminish their color or brightness under fluorescent lighting which makes them EXCELLENT for Con goers and the like. They give the fullness of a trans white blade but no loss in brightness like with a transwhite and no loss of saturation of color unlike transwhite blades. Since blue is still the color of light that activates the dye in these blades, any color that has blue in it will create interesting coring effects with these blades. SWTOR style multi color blades are now possible, and they look cool. Currently available in Red, Blue, and Amber/Gold.

I purchased the Enhanced Red dayblade, 32" in preparation for an upcoming convention - I also own the standard blue dayblade, and will be duel wielding a red main saber with a blue shoto, so I needed something to match, and wanted to try an "enhanced" blade out. By far, one of my best saber purchases yet. It not only makes my TRI-Red saber look amazing, but it also makes my purple saber (a quad RRBB from another company) look like an amazing shade of pink. It also yields a very cool, albeit dim, shade of orange when used with a green saber, and while I have yet to use it with a blue saber, I'm sure the results are equally cool.
What it really helped with, however, was how I looked at blade thicknesses. These are only available with 1/16th inch thick walls, and up until getting this I'd only used 1/8th thick blades. While they balanced nicely with longer sabers (12" or larger, or a 24" blade for a shorter hilt) I always felt those hilts were a bit large for a small person such as myself. This changed all that. Not only are sabers lighter with thsi blade, but they're easier to spin, and the shorter sabers (around 10") that I prefer the look of balance MUCH nicer.
In short - buy one. You won't regret it.

If you can still get your hands on one, GET THIS BLADE. This blade will really make your reds and oranges pop like crazy. Full, bright, saturated colors, and even coring effect colors are possible with this beauty.

I bought a gold/amber blade, which looked more orangey than the picture led us to think, but the color was really beautiful with a yellow blade. However, it was with a cyan blade that I found the best color (maybe any blue would just do the trick). It has an amazing core effect which ranges from teal to yellow/golden/orange. The tip is entirely yellow, even with a cyan blade, but I really liked the contrast between the two of them. I loved that blade so much that I'm waiting to see if a blue one will be available soon. Great job Vader's vault!

The blade does everything it's supposed to (reflect floresecent light, hold its color in brighter lights etc) and if you are going for a blade that will look good at conventions there's no other choice. I'm using it on a saber with white flash on clash and it the clash is fully visible. However the most unexpected part for me was seeing what a blue led did with the blade (an organge-fuschia like color.) Overall I would recommend this for any red saber and a really interesting color for blue sabers

While not as bright as a Photon, these enhanced day blades still react to light to create a fuller more solid blade color like you get with trans-white, less washing out from that pesky sun, and with no loss of brightness (regular day blades you loose a bit of brightness with). They can also be used for some cool color combinations and coring effects ala The Old Republic.

I bought the enhanced red and while it looks interesting with a blue LED kind of a fuchsia pink. It looks amazebawls with a red LED. It looks really good in direct sunlight when the saber is turned off as it catches the light of the sun and diffuses it a little bit instead of just reflecting it like a normal day blade does.

My hilts are SF with +12 Artic Blue colour. From left to right: VV Heavy Day Blade, VV Enhanced Day Blade, and The new SF Day Blade.
The Enhanced Day blade is the brightest and most even.

I have to say, the RED day blade I purchased for my nephews saber build looks totally fantastic. we are running a tri cree with dual reds and a green for Foc on a NBv3 and this blade realy makes the saber looks great both when running and when off. VV service on getting this blade to us was exemplary, esp. considering they were at the Celebration London. My nephew was visiting from Vietnam and we only had a few days to get his saber built before he had to leve for home, and Deanna made sure the blade was shipped out pronto so we could get it in time for testing and fitting into the luggage. You guys excell as do your products

I have no experience with custom saber blades as I'm new to this, so the only comparison I have is to the stock blade that comes on fx sabers, but comparing it to that, it's fantastic. I put a blue Rebel star in a luke anh black series Saber, and wasn't too happy with the consistency or brightness. Put the enhanced day blade on, significantly brighter, especially under light, much more consistent, and is very photogenic even under lights. Very satisfied.
