For my first pixel saber I chose to go with the Brawler Elite. Although it took a little longer than estimated to ship, this saber was well worth the wait. The hilt looks phenomenal in person, is comfortable to wield with one or both hands, and the pixel technology works really well with this model—the hilt really goes well with any color blade. Volume-wise...well, prepare yourself. This saber goes to 11.
The brawler elite is an awesome saber. Not only is it very comfortable to hold, it's absolutely beautiful! It's perfect for 2 handed dueling but still small enough to be used for single handed. Highly recommended!
First I will say "Wow." This saber is amazing. Writing a review really does not do this saber justice. You need to hold it and wield it to appreciate what Vader's Vault has done. I got it with little customization, just the PlecterPixel blade. That alone is spectacular. Video is very bad at capturing what these sabers look like when ignited. They just swamp the camera. But I will tell you the colors are rich and vibrant. The special effects you can do with the blade are jaw dropping. The one thing I regret is not getting the Bluetooth RICE upgrade. If you're considering the PlecterPixel blade it really is a must as it is so much fun tweaking the configurations for the blade effects you can do.
The saber has great balance, even with the heavy grade bade I got. Some may think it's too heavy but I find it quite manageable. Full disclosure though is I am one Darth Vader tall, 6 foot 7.
This is my first VV saber and they have a customer for life. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
The craftsmanship on this saber is astounding. I opted for the NeoPixel Setup, which is insanely bright. The sound is very loud. This is easily the loudest saber in my collection. The feel and finish are simply top-notch. I almost feel like I bought a Rolex instead of a lightsaber!
A couple of things worth mentioning, not as cons, but things I wasn't aware of until I had my hands on it. The NeoPixel setup makes it much more blade-heavy than an in hilt LED. I also got the heavy grade blade so that made the blade even heavier.
The hilt is as slim as you'd expect from a VV. I also own a Rev'n and it's about the same diameter. However, this hilt is also much longer than the Rev'n. In fact, it's the longest saber I own at 12.5 inches. That makes this a true two handed saber. (They don't call it the brawler for nothing!)
The leather wraps are nice and tight. There is a little bit of fraying on the edges, but that's to be expected and easily fixed. The wrapped sections are big enough for a hand grip on each, although with the heavier blade, I find myself placing my dominant hand closer to the emitter and not on the corresponding grip.
I'm 5'7 and I got a 32 inch blade. I may end up getting a shorter blade for this to make a little easier for me to handle.
Overall, this is easily the nicest saber in my collection of about 15. It's absolutely stunning and feels great!
