The Darth Vader ESB force fx was the second lightsaber in my collection. I absolutley love this lightsaber. It is my favorite of them all. The blade is a blood red, the model sith blade. It's sound is deep and evil, darker than any of the others. The swing is decent and the clash is alright, but it's idle hum is what I love most about its sound. The hilt at first I didnt like, until I learned to hold it above the emitter. This provides a smoothe surface for spins and a comfortable grip. With a good pair of gloves the lower hilt is comfortable as well and its grip is unmatched. The only thing I dont like about the ESB Vader is the emitter is a bit large and is accidently switched off easily. It is by far my favorite of the sabers though, near flawless. 9 1/2 out of 10.
