Russ Rep V2 w/Cs2 Reason I entered the hobby
« on: April 19, 2014, 01:31:57 PM »
Exactly a year ago I bought a sf prodigal son.

I tried adding sound to it with a mr board.

I had converted 4 mr sabers with luxeon LEDs using the tutorial on tcs forums.

I searched the web for someone who
Could tackle the prodigal son, I found Lb custom sabers.

He installed a nano in it, he told me I could do it myself after seeing MHS sabers I had done, I ended up tearing the prodigal son apart, just leaving his switches so I could upgrade the led.

Steve from Lb lived near me and he helped me out, along with giving me install tips he also guided me to the  fx forums where I have made friends and learned so much this past year. I meet with Steve a few times a months and we talk Shop.

I have since sold that prodigal son and have been desperately looking for
a Luke hero or V2.

I am so happy Chewie posted this V2.

It was exactly what I wanted and needed....

Now a year and it has come full circle.

The Weathering is wonderful.

The sound is so clear

And the tri rebel GGW so brights!

Thanks Mh, this is perfect.

I am glad you love it Justin.  It was one of my favorite sabers to build since I got to use my new mill on it some (first completed build I used my mill on).

I hope you enjoy it for years to come.

I like the sloth card better now (just recently started liking them more) but still like the brass cards as well.  If you had mentioned you liked the brass better I would have put one on for you in the first place since I have a couple.

As you know Chewie... I have two V2's you did for me and I agree that the SF's is more screen accurate IMO.

Nah didn't come off wrong. There is nothing wrong with making it more personal for yourself and if you like the brass card better then it is an upgrade for you lol.  It is your saber and you should have it just like you want it.

There are very nice saber over theses forums  8)
We are all looking at the stars, we are Homo-sapiens-Stellaris.
when I see other's sabers I might think they have build them like a Tardis, bigger inside than oustide. Unlike mines huhu.
