Thanks everyone! I am excitedly waiting for the saber as we speak. Yes Genesis Custom Sabers has taken lightsaber creation to the level of fine art for sure! I'll post some vids of katas with the bane and curved prototype badaxx saber when the Bane arrives, all Rob's curved blades are perfect for form 2 and easily transitioning Makashi (2) into form 7 Juyo (as i recall vapaad is the jedi name for 7). Also the sound font on the badaxx, flourish, is like the hard core biker of sound fonts or something, theres a reversal of flutter and hum that growls, almost mantra like; i guess madcow was going for it to be badaxx :P I suspect the curved Bane will also feel like lifting air and have a perfectly balanced heft as well. i am so stoked to get it!!!
