Powerful and intense. Two words that can barely contain the level of awesome this saber exudes. Every inch of it detailed and balanced, from the forked emitter that is slightly over bored at the end to allow the glow from the blade escape better. To the two coin edged, bridge pieces connecting the forks, the asymmetrical concave choke, the milled details around the lower emitter area, the super comfortable grip bar that spans over a luxurious piece of glove quality lambskin leather, all the way down to the tapered pommel with spiral cut sound vents resulting in one of our loudest Combat Class sabers. This new Version 2 design sees the removal of the AV switch seen in the last version of the past several years, and in its place, 2 low profile tactile switches that can now be configured independently with either aluminum, brass, copper, or RGB backlit clear acrylic plungers. The optional accent LEDs have been changed to a new 8 segment SMD bargraph that mounts between the switches for a more verbose external lighting feature. The Maelstrom can be all things to all wielders and is nearly unmatched in balance and comfort.

This is my first lightsaber, and I’m extremely happy that it is! It’s not heavy, the grip is easy to use, and it looks amazing! I have it resting on a pedestal in the office so I can stare at it every other minute.
I got the Maelstrom as my very first custom saber and order from VV and i couldn't be happier with it! I'm blown away by quality and attention to detail of the hilt. Really is a piece of art. Also, was impressed how comfortable the hilt feels in the hand to swing. The neopixel and CFX adds to the mind-blowing experience with all varieties of blade colours/effects and sound fonts. Will be buying more in the future!
I got the Maelstrom during the 2019 RTS christmas sale and couldn't be happier with the purchase. As this is my first Vader's Vault saber, I was astonished with the build quality and detail of the hilt . The brightness and sound quality are excellent with a variety of colors and sound fonts to choose from. Also, the option to charge your saber via USB-C in this CFX version of the saber is definitely a bonus.
I couldn't be happier with my Maelstrom! It's gorgeous and comfortable to hold thanks to the leather wrap and metal grip. The sound font and FX are extremely realistic (and loud!), and the LEDs are bright enough to literally light an entire floor of my house when the power went out. I think I'll call her "Fate." I'll definitely be buying my next saber from VV!
