Well....Crystal Focus seems to be the choice board 8). We've decided to make the last 5 spots 'either or'. Anyone wanting one of the last spots can choose PRIZM or Crystal Focus.
poor Prizm, looks like no one wants to give it any love :-*
When you are shelling out this much on a saber it makes sense to go with the CF option. A $200 upgrade to a CF is a steal when you consider the price of the board, CEx and the install fees that are typical for a CF. Thats a $400+ value for $200. Its really like getting a CFv7 CEX color-changing upgrade + tuning and color configs for half off, all things considered. Also, the recent advances in tech have pushed the CFv7 quite a bit further away from a board like PRIZM. 12 fonts, combos, spins, stabs... there is just so much more to get out of a CF that it makes sense given the price!
Furthermore, this is a really exclusive hilt. I would only want the best electronics in mine. PRIZM is awesome, but I don't think I would pay $1400 for a saber with a color-changing PC when I could get top of the line sound with considerably more fonts/features for $200 more. Going with CF just makes the most sense with these numbers and with a run of this calibre, IMO. If I was able to get in then I would sock away $25 extra a month and that would pay for the CF trim level by the time final payment is due. I can see the affordability of saving $400 on a pair, but at the same time is $400 that hefty when you are committing to spending almost $3000 on a pair of these hilts?
Just food for thought :) I am sure that people will be more than happy with both board options when all is said and done. These are going to be really cool to see, congrats to everyone in so far and good luck to VV over the course of the run!
