My new favorite saber
Nothing but good things to say about the Brawler. Definitely a utilitarian design that “disappears in your hand” without sacrificing interesting and reminiscent architecture. Opting for the 3 accent LEDs adds a recessed area 90-degrees from the activation, which gives just enough bling without looking gaudy or out-of-place. Roughly 2-inch blade socket with retention screw tapped into thickest OD portion of emitter for “full-tilt” heavy dueling without the set screw emerging from the hilt. The heavier pommel makes both spinning and dueling feel natural with a 36” thin blade (I’m tall), and brutally fast with a 32” thin. The unique sound font is outstanding on the 22mm bass speaker and is outrageously loud on volume 4. CS 4.0 provide excellent accuracy and features worth upgrading to if you have an older model—pitch shift is life-changing. Also consider upgrading to a wrap, it really brings out the beauty of this design.
