The Ardent Elite™, a fresh take and Vader's Vault spin on traditional design themes. Our first true "Thin Neck" Combat Class saber, we took extra care that while giving the look, balance and feel of the thin neck, we didn't sacrifice the duel worthy durability of the Combat Class. Meant for the active saberist, this saber is balanced and comfortable, melding with the wielder's hand like it was meant for them since birth. Offered with your choice of emitter crown and neck accent colors, as well as black powdercoated accents on the body sections and pommel. The emitter is packed with detail, from the elegant rounded rings at the crown, to the 4 sets of light emitting 'gill slits' in the center. The engraved detail around the switch area offers an asymmetrical catch for the eye. Just enough to give the area some contrast. The middle v-grooved grip provides a non-slip surface in a traditional fashion. The rear, vertically milled 'booster' section offers an off-set to the v-grooved grip. The pommel stands out as a very familiar power cell design with raised cubes, but in a non obtrusive, unique placement, complete with wide sound vents for great volume and resonance control. This entire saber screams elegance, and power. Get yours today!

Here we are again, this time with PlecterPixel/Neopixel instead of Suncrusher RGB. The quality of the hilt build is exceptional as expected and the Gold Accent work is clean. Brass Covertec is great quality and solid.
The Plecterpixel/Neopixel blade is exceptionally put together, very solid like it was 1 piece. Vader's Vault really does make the best saber blades. The tip is fused so well with the blade body that it's basically a 1 piece solid object and the pixel leds go all the way into the tip so there's no dark spot there. Connectors for blade and hilt are straight and even, exceptional work there too.
Battery swap process is still a pain in the butt. Because there's barely any space between the Delrin Chassis + Larger 3000 mah 15A high drain PCB battery you need to shake carefully to get the chassis to come out, then use the guitar pick or lego brick separator to get the thicker battery to pop out. It takes more effort and care than with slimmer 2400MAH 18650 cells but it's doable.. It's a really tight fit in there.
Overall 10/10 Vader's Vault saber :)
Hands down, VV is the best. I own two Saberforge Epochs, two Ultrasaber Dark Apprentices and two Sabertrio FX Aeryns, all with couplers for staff spinning. The quality, reliability and features of VV are far superior to the others. My only regret is not having bought two! My next sabers will definitely be from VV.
My Ardent Elite arrived earlier than expected and I have been enjoying playing with since it arrived a little over a week ago. The quality and craftsmanship is evident thought out the saber. I am glad I took the time to research saber companies and then choosing VV to purchase my first saber from.
The Ardent Elite saber is the crowning piece to my new Jedi costume and I look forward to carrying it at the upcoming Megacon in May.
I'm already thinking about purchasing a second Ardent Elite only with the Plecter Pixel blade and Accent Led's.
If you are considering purchasing a lightsaber, VV is where you need to look. I am very happy with my Ardent Elite and can recommend VV with out reservation. Thank you Vaders Vault.
I received my Ardent Elite in about 3.5 months, earlier than expected and a most pleasant surprise. This is my first lightsaber and my first saber from Vader's Vault. I had done quite a bit of research before deciding on a lightsaber company and VV was my choice. The quality and craftsmanship is excellent, the attention to detail is obvious and the feel and look are everything I had hoped for. Which makes it even more fun to play with.
The saber will look great in combination with my full Jedi costume at the upcoming Megacon this year.
I'm already seriously considering getting another Ardent Elite only upgrading to the Plecter Pixel version.
So if your looking to buy a lightsaber please consider VV. The folks at VV take pride in their products and that pride is evident in every saber they produce.
May the Force be with You.
