Comparison of Makoto's different Saber Options for Brightness
« on: December 09, 2011, 09:41:23 AM »
It's difficult to tell in this video, perhaps I need to get an HD camera to really see the differences here:

Far Left (last saber shown in video): LED 10W RGGB Both greens on only
Left: Makoto V3 (one string in blade)
Middle: Makoto Super Plus + (two strings in blade)
Right: Makoto V4 (four strings in blade)

Very, very nice vid, as usual! :)

Comparison videos might work better with some kind of separating "wall" between sabers, but this one's quite educational as well. Well, at least I like it!

Even still I think makos v3 beats the led 10W, the v3s+ edges the v3 a little but the v4 is by far the sickest.

When I can get my saber made definitely a v4 mako blade is in order, By then a top quality ledS SB will be around, hopefully the PC will make it to the LedS blades then I will have a use for spending that kinda money on a SB.

Are these Makoto blades still "on the market"?

Any link to a website (if allowable)?

You can order Makoto sabers directly from Makoto. Email him to talk about the options:

xxx that v4 makoto is super bright! To really tell the brightness difference watch carefully on the black mat each blade gives a small amount of light aura once the camera adjust you can really see the difference between all 4 blades! I couldnt tell at first then after awhile it was very noticeable thanks for the share spacewindu!

The LED strings are so bright. I love them

Haha... Well, it's a fool's errand, boy. The Emperor's army is infinite. You'll eventually be killed... or worse... and nothing will have changed.

I have two Makoto plus V3 (red and blue). The red glow is a little more than the blue, but both are fantastic. For those who like style LS sabers, these very pleasing. Nothing against the LED at the base, I'm even to make one. Maybe soon we will have a CF for LS. Fabulous.
