The Ardent™, 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. 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 other side offers the chance to add extra flair with an optional SMD LED bargraph or OLED screen, and different frame metals as well. The middle v-grooved grip provides a non-slip surface in a traditional fashion. The rear, vertically milled 'booster' section offers an off-set look 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!

Beautiful design, easy to swing around, and the CFX works to perfection! Fantastic buy, highly recommend!
I've been spinning lightsabers at summer music festivals for many years. After much research, I finally ordered a pair of Ardents (for duel wielding) with neopixel blades and "D" clips (for saber throws) to add additional flair to my performances. I was not disappointed when they finally arrived. They arrived charged, and ready to work with immediately. The blade is bright, the sound is loud, and both are configurable. The new CFX sound board is overwhelmingly feature rich, and with the inclusion of R.I.C.E., I was able to configure the saber (sound, colors, blade animations) beyond anything I had seen prior. The hilt itself is lightsaber spinning perfection. It has no sharp edges (NO GLOVES REQUIRED!), no distracting protrusions that get in the way. The "bulge" at the base of the emitter provides a perfect grip point while the finely machined ornate narrow neck design gives the look and feel of an actual lightsaber versus the glorified flashlight you'll get from other sabersmiths. The polished finish and vented slits add to the saber's visibility when I'm spinning at night during festivals. The Ardent is well balanced, and spins amazingly well even though the neopixel blade does add a little weight to the top. The Ardent also has an internal chassis (a build feature I demand) for the battery, soundcard, speaker etc. which adds to it's comfort and durability. After years, I have no use for other sabers that rattle internally. I find them to be flimsy and offensive. The sabers both arrived separately within the 16-22 week time frame the website stipulates. This makes it a little tough to replace (or repair) a dead saber. In addition, novice computer users may find R.I.C.E. a little difficult to get working on older computers, but these are the only downsides I can find thus far. All this and smooth swing too makes The Ardent the best pro saber for spinning on the market. I would definitely order more from Vader's Vault in the future. After all...I personally find a lack of quality...disturbing. ; )
A FINAL NOTE: Order extra batteries for neopixel blades, you'll be glad you did.
The details are fantastic, the chassis is way better then ultrasabers by far. Ability to charge in a port or unscrew speaker to remove battery genius. The battery is locked tightly with speaker it won't pop out (coughing ultrasabers). Plecterpixel is incredible I love its amazing features, on and off you will gradually see the leds from the bottom up off top down more geniusness lol. Highly recommend.
Quite simply one of the best purchases I've ever made. My sabre travelled across the pond to the UK safely. Build quality is excellent, sound is so great, sabre colours are vivid, controls are intuitive.... So good I'll be ordering another. Thanks Vaders Vault... Well worth the wait!!
