My wife and I ordered our five-year-old son a Progenitor Eco saber for his birthday on May 2nd; I had also ordered a Defiant Eco for myself and his mom so our son had someone to play with.
The Defiant Eco stopped lighting up the very first day. I sent that saber back for repairs and finally got it back after FIFTY EIGHT DAYS.
To make matters much worse, my son's Progenitor Eco saber began intermittently failing to register clashes and has stopped making the "whoosh" sound when swung. Yesterday, the Progenitor Eco saber stopped lighting up. I don’t know what to do here; I don’t think my son should have his birthday present ripped away from him for two whole months because of Saberforge’s shoddy workmanship.
*** One saber didn't last a single day; the other one didn't last a freaking month. ***
To say I am outraged is a disservice to outrage. Your website says you make, "high quality LED sabers made for full contact dueling;" well, that has NOT been my experience with your products. A five-year-old shouldn't be able to break TWO such "high quality LED sabers" in less than a month, should he?
First off, I've heard a lot about Saberforge having notoriously long delivery times. However, that was not the case with my order. I ordered on June 2 and it arrived July 10!
The LED is sufficiently bright and looks good in the dark. You will not get the "white core" effect on the blade like you see in the movies. Soundboard is faily responsive to swings. Certain fonts (Viridian for my saber) are a bit too sensitive for the swings and trigger for like no reason. Gun metal seems to be the most responsive on my saber. The speaker is pretty damn loud too.
The blade seems to be a heavier grade dueling blade. Feels very stable but that sacrifices your point of balance. With a 32" blade, my saber's point of balance is roughly 4" or 5" from the emitter.
Overall, with all the features you get with the Eco sabers, you really can't beat them at this price point. Would definately recommend.
I recently bought this saber as a gift for a friend. He very much loved it!
Nice blend of form and function; great sound, lighting, and clashing effects.
this is my first saber and I am very happy with is
I will first start with all the bad things,
it took 7 months to come after I ordered it but to be fair there was a lot of inconveniences that they could not control.
the sound isn't the greatest but you can mute the sound and it works fine.
now the good things
it feels amazing, to just hold it gives me shivers. the blade actually has some weight to it. it is very comfortable and for the price the quality is amazing. its definitely worth the wait and money
if you are looking for a first lightsaber any of the eco sabers are amazing
