I received a Tempest.
Plecterpixel blade is a very good item. Sensitivity adjustment is also optimal.
I like it very much.
Only one point, the accent LED is pretty dazzling.
You had better lower the illuminance.
This is my first saber and I'm seriously impressed with it! I liked the look of the Tempest online, but I wasn't prepared to love it more in person. Very light saber and beautifully designed. It's nice and loud and the weathering I got on it looks great. Can't wait to try it with stunts and combat! Overall, wonderful saber! Definitely elegant and dignified, if that's what you're looking for. Totally would buy from Vader's Vault again. They did an excellent job with this one.
What can I say? This is one of the coolest and simple designs I have seen and it works so perfect as a one handed saber. It's sleek but elegant. I couldn't have asked for a cooler saber. In my own person opinion, get it with a wrap... it's twice as amazing!
There's a lot to say about this one.
I'll focus mainly on the hilt here since we all [should] know how great the brightness and volume are already.
This hilt came with RGB Suncrusher in Mirror Polish 'weathering'. This thing looks extremely sleek. It reminds me of the Naboo Starfighter without the yellow. I intend to use this for duelling and spinning despite the mirror polishing. Speaking of mirror polishing, the window in the emitter gives off a really nice bling, especially with mixed colors (primarily purple). At least it did for me.
In terms of heft/weight, it's quite light. If this were to be used in duelling, I'd imagine this as a fencing-style rapier, or a Chinese straightsword.
In terms of handling, its lightness makes spinning flow very gracefully and intuitively. It's like the blade wants to spin and follow through. The balance point is about 4 inches above the emitter so spinning is more suitable than stabbing motions if you're thinking of duelling in a fencing style (not that it can't be done).
If there's one thing I'd like to point out, be aware that the edges towards the tip of the emitter can be sharp. You won't likely hurt yourself at all unless you purposely try to, but just keep that in mind. It's also more likely to dent if impacted against something.
