Vader's Vault Combat Class sabers are made for the active saberist. The designs in this category have to meet strict criteria of sleekness, durability and aesthetic appeal. Each design in the Combat Class category is slim, and most sabers have a general grip surface diameter of 1.25" and a average length of 10.25" with a few models being the exception to this. This makes for an extremely well balanced saber for spinning, stunt work, or dueling, without feeling like you're grabbing a D-Cell flashlight. The internal design is just as attractive, sporting a one piece machined Delrin chassis that holds the 18650 size battery cell, soundboard, and 22mm 3 Watt speaker. Don't let the size fool you, these sabers are packed with awesome features that before now, just weren't available in sabers of this price point. You get the best in the industry for LED lighting with an ultra bright Suncrusher™ Tri-Emitter lighting solution which allows for the awesome Flash on Clash™ feature.

A bit about the Crystal Shard soundboard:
The Crystal Shard that comes in our Combat Class sabers is a tiny soundcard that is packed with rich features previously only found on higher end soundcards. With the low profile auxiliary switch that is on the underside of the saber (180 deg from the main switch), you have access to six, that's right SIX soundfonts, Pulse, Flicker, pitch shift, force effect, multiple boot, lockup and 4 blaster sound effects even at the base price starting at $299. You also have the ability to have SIXTEEN different main blade colors and SIXTEEN different Flash on Clash colors (color change requires RGB upgrade) at any time and a very user friendly way to change those blade colors at your whim (see Video below). The three fonts loaded on the saber will be the default "Graymeat, Darkmeat, and our exclusive model specific soundfonts. Other awesome custom fonts for you to fill up your SD card are available at Saberfont.com
