What would it take to get an updated list? I'm thinking about upgrading from the little 3 watter (which I didn't realize was 3 watts) to something beefier so it can be seen in day light.

For all european (expecially italian) forum sabersmiths, I found this company which sells alluminium online, even in small amounts. They were really nice and helpful with me; their site is both in italian and english language.

I would like either a white I can turn into red via something or red. The saber is a TCSS version of Revan. After looking around a little more a tri cree XP-E2 seems to be the way to go over the single cree XP-E in white I currently have.

Hey guys, I'm new to this and a little confused.
If I'm using a star/ luxeon style LED's, do I only need one to light the entire Blade?

Define 'one' yes I know it sounds odd. The LEDs come on stars, said star can have anywhere from 1 - 4 (sometimes more) bulbs on it. Yes one will work but finding a good one that can be seen well is an issue I'm having in part due to lack of experience and lack of money to throw at the problem. I currently run a single cree XP-E in white turned to red and it's barely visible in indoor lighting. I hear the XP-E2's are supposed to be pretty good, I'm also debating about just getting a really beefy white and doing something so it will be red.
