The Tempest is a lovely elegant saber just right for one handed use but is big enough for two hands if that's your thing, the finish I asked for is with out a doubt fantasist the copper at each end with the gold activation switch, the colours in the blade are great so bright and the sound is also so loud, this is my first saber I done a lot of research into the difference makers and VV came out on top I'm glad I went with them it was a long wait 5 months but for the work that go's into them it's not surprising, Thank you all at Vader's Vault ..

Picked up a Tempest Elite at a Ready-to-Ship sale, and here's what I appreciate more now that I've held one:
1) This thing is beautiful. Not just the shine, but the curves, especially on the emitter. It's not just a slant - it bows like a fountain pen. Looks sleek and dangerous.
2) It's little! I thought my Havoc was tiny until I held the Tempest. They're about 10" long each, but the Tempest is 0.8" wide at the grip. Extremely comfortable, though if you're looking for something with 2-handed utility, look elsewhere. Perfect for one-handers, and you dual-wielders will want this for your off hand.
3) It's loud and the Tempest font is incredible. Even better, the hilt vibrates a touch in my hand - my Havoc does not. Not sure why, but I can feel the Force flowing through my saber!
Love it, thank you Deanna and Alan!

This saber sits next to 2 saber forge sabers and a kyberlite, and it makes them look pretty bad. This is the smallest saber I've seen. Its absolutely perfect. I did black and brass and its for my almost 2 year old son. He can actually swing it around already with the blade in it, that's how lite this saber is. I would have bought all VV if I had seen the craftsmanship and quality before the others. The pictures are hard to tell but this thing is small, and absolutely scrumtralesent. Thank you VV and it was fast too. 5 or 6 months.

Saber took a little more than 4 months to arrive, but the wait was worth it. Hilt has beautiful finishing. Light hues are bright and on point, especially in the dark.

I order my tempest elite May 15th 2016, and got the message it was sent to me just a few days before Christmas, so full of anticipation (and hoping for a nice Christmas present), I was awaiting the delivery. Today, Jan 10th 2017, it finally arrived. The build quality is great , but it had a small damaged tip where the hilt meets the blade. It's hardly noticeable, so I won't complain about it.
The blade it very bright and really comes to life with the amazing humming sound. Regarding the sound, it was a bit too reactive on swings, but with a fully charged battery, this has become better.
Overall, it's a very nice looking blade that meets the quality expectations I heard so much about on the forums. I'm a happy Jedi!

Just like the title says, I have been waiting 8 months since the day I ordered my Tempest Elite and I could not be happier. It is everything I ever wanted in a combat lightsaber and much more. I had no idea the hilt would be so thin and light, I can move the blade so easily because of this. The multi-color option is definitely worth having because I love changing the color of the blade day-to-day. The sound board is amazing and cannot wait to download other sounds. This is my first combat lightsaber I have ever seen or bought, and if I buy another one, it will also be from Vader's Vaunt.

Well, i can say it was worth 7 months wait. It has really a great feeling to it.
- I think the default audio volume to 4 was too high, it was aggressive on my ears using it at first, i reduced it to 2 since then.
- I had trouble getting the micro sd card out, i could have use a video on that.
- It's not easy to select the saber options with no visual clue (like leather option i had no idea where that would be applied or i did not realize one of the options i selected would add a big thing in the middle of the saber to clip it with a belt.) Pictures of options on site would be the cherry on the cake.
Again, it's a 4 star review, a fantastic product overall, worth the price. Tough to wait that long but when you got it... You can't stop smilling :)

It reached safely.
It was worth waiting.
I can not forbid the excitement of too much beauty！

Thank you for a wonderful light saver！

I ordered two Tempest elites for a Tempest Staff on June 1st, and got them about 21 weeks later, just in time for the convention that I'm going to.
The detail and design of the saber looks so much better in person, I was definitely not disappointed. The size and shape of the hilt fits perfectly in my hand (a little small for double handed grip, but still manageable).
Suncrusher yellow is insanely bright and loud. I regret not getting the RGB upgrade, but I will definitely get it on my next purchase.

This saber is a beauty. I waited nearly 32 weeks for this to arrive in the mail, but as a wise green jedi once said "Patience you must have" I could not be happier with this saber . The weight is light this also works real well with my small hands, great for one handed use or dual Will buy another one in the future from Vader Vault
