The Yoda is an excellent saber. I find that it is perfect for my 4 year old son. It is actually HIS. The color is just plain AMAZING. I am even shocked that I can see it in plain sun light while outside. Simple amazing.
When I use it, I don't really enjoy the grip, because I find that the little knobby between the emitter and the shroud sits wrong in my hand. Maybe if I were to modify it slightly...who knows. But I got it for Damien, not me. LOL...
I DO look at the positives however and to what the Yoda will eventually lead to:
1) Sidous style saber since we have smaller electronics
2) Dooku saber, hopefully off of Master Yoda's designs, due in part to new electronics
3) New adapter sizes being made by ULTRA, TCSS, and others so we may convert our sabers to 3/4" blades, giving a lighter and more realistic feel to the saber.
I especially will keep a watchful eye to adapt my Maul Staff Saber to two 3/4" blades. How fast would I be able to whip that thing around then!
It's is a great saber Dajoquim.
