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 lighting with an ultra bright Suncrusher™ Tri-Emitter LED lighting solution which allows for the awesome Flash on Clash™ feature, or the awe inspiring versatile Plecter Pixel blade tech with realistic extension, retraction, Flash on Clash™, color changing and other awesome blade FX.

A bit about the Crystal Focus soundboard:
The Crystal Focus that comes in our Combat Class sabers is a small soundcard that is packed with rich features and audio quality only found on the best soundcards. With the low profile auxiliary switch that is on the saber, you have access to unlimited, that's right UNLIMITED soundfonts, Pulse, Flicker, pitch shift, force effect, multiple boot, lockup and multiple blaster sound effects even at the base price starting at $399. You also have the ability to have THIRTY-TWO different main blade colors and THIRTY-TWO different Flash on Clash colors as well as THIRTY-TWO different "Blade FX" profiles (color change requires RGB upgrade) at any time and a very user friendly way to change those blade colors at your whim with the updated Spectrum™ feature (see Video below). The 15 fonts included will be the default Plecter Labs font package, and one of our exclusive model specific soundfonts. Other awesome custom fonts for you to fill up your SD card are available at Saberfont.com
Other Soundboard Options:
Vader's Vault will be offering to customers who want a more DIY tailored experience will have the option to have the open source based PROFFIE soundboard installed. Keep in mind, that while the firmware feature set of the PROFFIE is extensive, its hardware is limited and not all features available on CFX builds are available on PROFFIE builds. While the install and hardware will be warrantied by Vader's Vault, the firmware will not be supported and is strictly DIY.
*Please allow approximately 16-22 weeks +- for assembly time as these are all hand made to your specifications. As per our FAQ, these are custom sabers built to order and we do not offer refunds at all. We especially do not issue refunds due to buyer's remorse, time frame, or event deadlines :).* *Orders with custom work such as complex powdercoating schemes, laser engraving, acid etching, and shroud work, are excluded from the posted wait time estimates* Keep in mind, due to the unprecedented nature of the Covid 19 pandemic, wait times can exceed the posted ETAs with some going as long as 26-32 weeks. Not all orders are taking that long but we do want to set expectations that some could. We are doing the best we can to minimize the effects on our customers but it has affected our industry as well as many others.
For those ordering PlecterPixel blades in HEAVY GRADE. While yes, they are stronger than standard blades, and in our test groups, have held up to tournament style dueling, we are still not warrantying them against dueling damage at this time.
