Combat Class

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.


Plecter Labs, undoubtedly the best quality in soundboards, produced an extremely small, feature laden soundboard for us to use in these compact sabers, the Crystal Focus X. Features like multiple sound fonts, configurable sensitivity parameters, color mixing and changing, sequenced accent LEDs, pitch shifting, music player,  mute on the go and so much more. The world renowned quality you've come to expect from Plecter labs with low latency motion detection, crystal clear TRUE 16bit audio and efficient design are all packed inside. So whether you're looking for the best saber for fight choreo, stunt work, or an all weekend Con workhorse, these sabers are right for you at a price that's right for everyone. Don't forget to browse and purchase a custom soundfont from Saberfont.com!


All Plecter Labs CFX Combat Class sabers will come with 15 included soundfonts (saber can hold as many as the SD card will allow), Suncrusher sabers come standard with VV  32" Dual Diffused blade with parabolic tip. Plecter Pixel sabers will NOT come standard with a Pixel blade but can be added to the order at time of purchased at a discount. All sabers will come with single 18650 Li-Ion battery cell, charger, and blade retention wrench.


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 (color change requires RGB upgrade) as well as THIRTY-TWO different "Blade FX" profiles (requires pixel 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


A bit about Proffieboard:

Proffie is a new addition to our saber sound offerings and is not necessarily offered on every model. It is an open source board geared specifically towards the DIY type person, someone who enjoys coding and full control over all aspects of a soundboard.  Keep in mind this is a DIYcentric board and, as such, has no warranty. We are unable to troubleshoot programming issues or hardware failures.  Any board troubleshooting, repair or replacement will be the responsibility of the end user. Again, this is an open source DIY board and only those familiar with the programming aspect or willing to put the time in to learn should order their saber with this board.

EDIT We are no longer offering Proffie on our sabers. Due to overwhelming feedback from customers and also from a profitablity standpoint, we have discontinued the offering.  Anyone already in the log will be contacted and offered an upgrade to the CFX with new Grafx package.  Or we can finish your build as ordered with the Proffie if you so desire.


*Please allow approximately 26-32 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 sometimes exceed the above posted ETAs right now and we anticipate this will persist until late 2023/early 2024. Most are currently running 6-12 weeks beyond the above posted times (10.5 months+-).  We apologize to everyone and are working hard to get back under stated ETAs on all orders, until then we will continue doing the best we can to get everything out as quickly as possible with the quality we are famous for. 

Not all orders are taking that long but we do want to set expectations that some could and many are. 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.
