PyroMagnum: I feel kinda bad because 1 of my christmas presents I asked for is from
Ultrasabers. But after watching this, I think I'd rather stick with TCSS
from now on. Some of the pictures people took of the insides of their saber
actually made me feel sick. I know my Dark Initiate V3 looks professionally
built on the inside since I already looked but now I'm worried about my
Dominix that's coming in. Probably the last time I deal with Ultrasabers
just to play it safe. And TCSS stuff is at nicer prices!
kevin thumann: lol wow I leave the forums for 3 months and chaos breaks out
TSEpictures: I plan on getting an Aeon V3 soon. I will have to chronicle my experience.
Akemi Ito: I've received sabers now from Ultra Sabres (Ordering The Malice this
Friday), never a problem, the product always exceeded my expectations in
every way and shipping times are always real short. I've used two other
companies, but for price, workmanship, durability they can't be beat. And
for full contact sparring they are the only blade that I've purchased that
can stand up to the abuse we throw at them.
Jarrod Rottau: That's weird, because I've purchased around a dozen or so Ultrasabers and
never had a problem with any of them. They range from early PVC hilts
(which still work) to custom jobs by Ultra. I guess every company puts out
a bad product here or there, but IMO they're legit enough.
apocalypssurvivor: I recently ordered a saber from them, i can say my e-mails with the company
have been ansewered promptly and profesionally. my saber has not arrived as
of yet, but i do plan on looking at it closley. i will do a video review of
it and post online,with the good or bad for all to see. I can speak of
certain ebay sellers though,who will sell knockoff's of all kinds of
products, you have to be carefull when you buy from an ebay seller. the hot
glue LED modules may be from eraly sabers IDK.
Ultramasterjedi: Just would like to put this out. So what if their insides are made rough?
the reason they probably broke is because they were using them to hard.
Plus they Make thousands of Sabers a year, there are bound to be several
that dont work. if you want a dueling saber, get one with a higher quality
blade, and one not made for fancy looks. if they are broke on arrival, I'm
sure they have warranties
Joshua Garcia: I have 4 stunts and NO problems at all. I've had my CG Liberator for like 2
years now and still works like on day 1, then a Dominix V2 LE in BR for a
year, still works good. Then I got 2 Grab bags, had them for maybe a month
now and still works good. Getting tired of people saying Ultra Sabers has
bad products when in fact they don't. I'm going to be buying my first
Obsidian saber soon too. Overlord in VA. ;o
Christopher Contreras: im buying 12 lol
darthgreivous: I used to have a video up on my channel about the whole situation with them
and Novastar, but I took it down when one of the members told me that if
the other head member saw this he would want to file a lawsuit on me.
hadomaru1121: I've got a Dark SI, no problems here. The blade is bright, the components
fit perfectly (except for the battery pack, but that's a 2 seconds fix) and
the hilt is durable and stylish. Best of all: they're affordable.
takanuva588: I have never had a problem with customer service. i once broke the
soundboard on my dominix V3 and i sent it in and they fixed it and
everything and they were very pleasent about it.
Randy Moore: I bought an ultrasaber once and it's not given me any trouble ever.
Polaris543: JQ sabers Uk please....
B3nny56: Good points. But Im still buying 4 next month and I cant wait :)
gargar75: I purchased about 10 sabers from Ultrasabers. Only had a small problem with
1 of them, and they took care of it. My experiences with ultrasabers has
been good. I have purchased many sabers on ebay, and literally about half
of the people i purchased a saber from on ebay were very dishonest. From my
personal experience, ultrasabers is one of only a few places that i
purchased a saber from that did not rip me off. I have had a total of
thousands of dollars taken from me by dishonest ebay sellers.
Marc Miller: I spent 300 on a saber, pretty much got the nicest they had with obsidian
and lighted switch. The board fried on me and it stopped working. They
fixed it and sent it back to me and it fried again this time with tons of
smoke. The customer service was horrible, accusatory, and arrogant. They
acted like mine burning up is unheard of, but a simple Internet search
showed others with the same story. The saber also was scratched up inside
and outside, obviously used and not new. They just ignored tha
MrAndstuff: i agree with what you saying one thing i dident hear about on hear was them
never responding when you ask a question and the other thing is the saber
smiths out there over price there sabers $1000 to $2000 dollers for 1 saber
is insane and i cant build a saber so this really puts me in a stuggel i
really dont know were to turn can some one tell me were to go and what to
do cuz im stuck
James Gates: I notice most of the pics seem to be from early models and most companies
tend to start out one way, and make improvements as they grow. They only
make their LED modules one way now and that is very well. they have a
diffuser lens and reflector inside an all aluminum housing that acts as a
giant heat-sync. Also what most refer to as hot glue, is actually a silicon
thermal adhesive. It is not well applied in these pictures, granted, but it
is an appropriate material for thermal protection.
doodlewop: Great Vid. had the same issue with my Overlord with US 2.5. My switch was
an empty AV switch with a tactile glued in where the AV switch should be,
and my board was wrapped in heatshrink and left loose in the hilt.
micahmatt: @ShepherdNeo I have had LOTS of problems with them. The blade on one broke
on the first use. The reflective material in the blade was crumpled up, and
one of the lightsabers shorted out.
Wes Collins: @bjalovick I would actually build my own lightsaber... If I knew how to
make them. I haven't been in any shop class of any kind since the 9th grade
so I would literally need someone right beside me the whole way with all
the programming cutting etc. I have yet to buy an ultrasaber, but I seem to
be getting a mixed bag about as much as I get a mixed bag on people's
like/dislike of the Star Wars prequels
Novastar (SaberCombat): @darthgreivous I've heard this from other people as well. They simply want
to frighten you (and others) into doing their bidding. You don't have to do
anything you don't want to do--but don't give into the fear. You have the
right to express your opinion about products and situations. People do it
all the time... and others attempt to SUPPRESS those people's opinions all
the time, too.
SteveSabbai: ...whats the music?...
SteveSabbai: ...i bought the Raven Saber from US but after watching this video i dont
think i will buy from them again...
HonestSaberReviews: I have disallowed many people agreeing with the video, because they call
ultrasabers names and use less than professional language in the comment.
Doing these things is nonproductive and does not help ones position. If you
would like to leave a comment saying why you disagree, in a polite and
respectful manner, I would be happy to allow it.
Leif Drace: ive got 3 of em and they all work just fine the only problem that i had was
that the batteries would sometimes become lose and the light would turn off
its a really easy fix though... just taped em in
Loathomar: My girlfriend and I got two UltraSabers light-sabers for Halloween this
year and we both agreed they are great. I also fight the information in
some of the comments doubtful, as the guy that spend $1000 on 2 Arbiter
with Sound seems to have spent a full $600 over the current retail price
for those, so that seems very questionable as a review. Really, I can only
speak to my one deallings for sure, and I personally really like my
UltraSabers light-sabers. Look great and are fun to flight with.
MrBREEBAH: music sounds a bit Mass Effect-y (Y)

Christopher Ellis: did you have any problems with them?
itsweskerbitch: I like them but almost every saber is a near clone of other sabers that
have been used by the main characters. It is very true that they are
Wes Collins: I recently purchase a Bellicose from them and thus far, all seems to be
going fairly well except that a. instead of a black blade holder, I got a
silver one. Minor complaint, I let it slide. But what I do not is the fact
that they sent it and UPS gipped me majorly not only cause of shipping
fees, but Ultrasabers tried to illegally get it across the border, then
when I called them out on this, Emory, the guy who does the videos, was
rude as all hell and mean. I shall wait for further developments
tranceadentialreviva: it will take longer, but you will learn something out of it, and its funner
anywho... just build your own sabers... blades and everything... the custom
saber shop has real quality parts. the only thing i liked about ultra
sabers were the hilts (empty) and the ultra edge blades.
Christian Terry: My dark initiate fell apart on me. I know its bound to happen because
Ultrasabers mass produces them to make it cheaper and I bought a really
cheap one but just letting you know. Thats the only problem I have had with
them though. Otherwise they do it pretty good.
maslad: I dont see any point here... I have 4 Us sabers (V2, consular) with and
without sound, for 2 years now. They all work perfect. People seem to
forget, if u make gazilion sabers a month, some will be faulty. And if you
sell to gazilion customers, some will be unhappy. In my expiriance, they
have the best customer suport EVER so im confused here. All this talk about
quality, rofl what do you expect from a 70 US saber ? And a saber that is
best u can buy for your money, duel-able and bright.
kenobiplaysthebanjo: Yeah...I don't know about you but if I had a company and someone was
posting bad reviews of my products on my own website, I sure as hell would
be deleting them. Welcome to business 101.
K1LLMihalis11: hey if u read on the website forum (...Space is tight in some of these
sabers and with the way we mount the soundboard for the Li-Ion setup, you
are guaranteed to have access to the port regardless of the saber. The same
cannot be guaranteed for Standard 4 AAA setup. Those battery packs are big
and take up a lot of space and we might have to use some serious cram-fu to
get everything to fit, which means access to the USB port is not guaranteed
with the Standard setup...)
Falconsway261: HI dude, I have been hearing stuff like this for a while now about them,
sometimes they will not even get back to a customer wishing to buy from
them or as you have stated, will send the wrong parts to the customer. It
is my understanding the best defence is to learn from mistakes made and
keep the customerrs happy by LISTENING to them and make the appropite
ajustments needed to do good work for the clientel who give them the
Republic Credits in good fath for the work they need done.
simontheewok: I have dropped mine and smacked it on the hardest of surfaces which left it
in the same condition I bought it in... Perfect. They make the most durable
lightsabers I have ever seen. In fact, I just bought another one the other
day because my friends and I are about to make a (probably really cheesy)
Ben Jalovick: Well if you want something done correctly do it yourself. That's why TCSS
exists :) why do you think the jedi build their own lightsabers? but I will
say that I ordered a liberator staff and I was and still am pleased with
it. though the LED is hotglued onto a nut it holds just fine but my only
real complaint is the battery pack. After extensive dueling the battery
pack broke and I have to use tape to keep it together along with some foam
to keep it from giggling in the hilt any more.
metroidball: So any update on this? I'd like to know how the cutting edge case did in
court and what was resolved. It would also be nice if you guys could look
into some of their newer products to see if quality is still lacking. Also,
does anyone here know any other place that sells sabers in this price
range? (And ships worldwide) I sorta want one that I can fight with that
does not break. But those companies that I found that sell are VERY
HonestSaberReviews: Thank you all for your constructive comments. Many of you have touched on
how you have not had quality issues, or minimal ones that are "expected"
since Ultrasabers produces so many. It is my intention to make people aware
of the possibility they could get a damaged saber, as you say, they make so
many. If you have had something fixed, I am glad for you. That does not
however, excuse the flagrant thievery of sound-fonts, nor excuse how they
treat people who review their products negatively.
ajs42350: The best thing about ultrasabers is they have low cost options. They have
their Graflex and $180+ models, but considering for the price of one Parks
saber, you can afford anywhere from 3-5 ultrasabers... that's not that bad.
Plus, if you break an ultrasaber's blade, it's not a $100 replacement. You
get what you pay for. If I were to spend $350 on a collectible like a
Parks, it better be perfect. But ultrasabers sit at around $70-130, so
replacements are affordable if needed.
Dale Williams: i have two ultrasabers and i have had no problems withthem, i am quite
pleased with the sabers.
AASPORTSANDTHINGS: HAHAHAHA you guys are funny. if you were serious the first thing you would
bring up is your dissapointment and what happened and some reason for being
upset. all i see is everyone posting how much they paid its all about
money. you pay less than 150 for a saber you get what you paid for try
buying a car and say this isnt what i paid for and watch them laugh at you.
you pay for everything in this world you want quality shell the money out
for it otherwise dont complain
micahmatt: @ShepherdNeo Never will buy from them again. Bought 3 lightsabers and all
of them were broken. 400 bucks wasted.
evilottojr: I have 5 Ultrasabers back from the days they used to use PVC. I've had a
few problems, mainly involving fragile battery packs and the PVC broke on
my saberstaff at one point, but nothing happened I couldn't fix. I'd say
they're a decent option for the price. If you need a saber fast, you don't
have weeks for machining, and don't have the money for a super-high-end
sabersmith, US isn't bad. Are they the best? No. But they're the cheapest,
and you get what you pay for. I'd buy from them again.
legozombie9000: low price, nice look, great colors, and durable...who gives a crap about
internals. go with ultrasabers
animalmother519: im one of those peps who got banned and kicked from forum and youtube chann
for standing up for nova and plecter ultra sabers are ladys
