Thanks, Todd. I have a problem with the cling film (plastic wrap) solution: It clings! I was adding cling film, inserting it to see how it looked, and then I found that I couldn't extract it! It's clinging to the wall of the blade, and pulling the Ultraedge diffusing film away. It's too bad, because it was looking pretty good, but on one side, the LEDs are all sharply visible as individual points of light. A layer of diffusing foam could have fixed it, but I am literally stuck.

I don't recall the length of the Hyperblade nylon tube. I cut it down, and didn't note the original length. Sorry.
There's always a bigger fish.

That's odd mine slides in and out no probs??
How much cling film did you use? The ultraedge already has a mild diffusing film

I specifically made sure that I used the correct amount so the LEDs would slide back out
Your best bet is to remove the blade cap and slide everything out including the inner ultraedge diffuser film
And start again

Dave, sorry to hear the cling film is causing you so many problems with the UltraEdge. What type/brand did you use?

Steve, what type/brand did you use on yours?

Need to know because I plan on doing the same thing on mine very soon.  Plus US is having a major sale on the UltraEdge blades right now....

it was called "best" cling film i beleive its just a cheap supermarket own brand
it shouldnt be sticking to things tho as when you wrap it you get a frosted window effect on it
i beleive matts problem is that he has used too much
also just to add you only want to be using cling film if you plan on NOT dueling.. with mine i was building a show sabers
