Question about Maul
« on: July 11, 2007, 07:00:39 PM »
I recently bought a double maul off of ebay, and I noticed that the blades seemed very wobbly, whether it was single or double. So I was just curious if that was normal? And if not is there a way to fix that wothout converting it to a luxeon, because I don't plan on doing that for a long time.

Unfortunately the blades on all the Maul's are like that.

Even though it's not recommended to duel with the FX sabers people still do it anyways (even I do! lol).  If you do decide to do some dueling with the stock MR sabers especially the Maul, do it lightly.  All though I will mention the Maul can take a bit more punishment than the rest of the FX sabers because of the thicker blades.

That is good because I try to only duel lightly for choreographing and practice.

Well folks-I got my Maul today and it is awesome! I don't find my blades wobbly ???
They are very sturdy inside the hilt but when its in double the whole thing vibrates.
I don't mind though. My friends are coming round tonight-So i'll have a review up in the next couple of days. They came round for a short while today and they love it! I highly recommend you dont duel against friends-(or enemies!) with a maul! The Maul is soooooo strong, it felt like it almost snapped my friends Yoda in half! LOL-Its awesome-Have fun!

Talk about a mismatch! You used the longest saber against the shortest saber? LOL! Glad you like your Maul. Now that I heard that Spencers has them for $99 I may pick one up myself next week. If it's still on sale of course.

If I was not Canadian, I would pick that up in a heart beat.

Bleh...everythings gotta be Americanized. 50 dollar shipping charges for us Canadians is way unfair. We are your neighbors!

LOL-Yeah! My other friend used my anakin because he has a Vader ESB and we didn't want 3 reds and 1 blue so he used mine instead. Heaps of people came out of their houses because i live in Australia and not many people around me know of them! LOL-Good times....Good times.... ;D

My double Maul has never had any wobble to it either. When I 1st got it, it seemed wobbly, but I just hadn't tighhtened it enough.

I think Grand Master Rar is referring to the  blade flex that the saber tends to have when coupled up. There is a minimal amount but nothing really detrimental.

Yes, I did mean the blade flex when coupled. I was unsure if this was normal or not. Thanks for all the info.
