Thanks guys.  Yeah, they are very comfortable to spin with the double-choke points.  As far as popularity, I guess we will see how it goes. :-\

Ohhh boy. I have been holding off on the stunts for custom builds, but this is sorely tempting...

I think others will have a similar question so im gonna ask it here as well as in PM.
How much is the deposit? When is the first batch expected to be finished? If I want tru-purple with FoC, would it be included in the upg to a 9w led with FoC? details are kinda wishy-washy

For those of you that havent seen this AMAZINGness its here http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?topic=18148.0

Added to the reveal thread so it can be discussed in one place.  You would not need to upgrade to 9W to get purple with FoC.  The upgrade price is simply the price difference between the 3W and 9W LED, so you would the 9W with FoC charge if you wanted 9W with FoC, however TruPurple with FoC in the 3W LED is great and I would personally NOT upgrade to 9W for that particular color.  The price difference in this case would be $20.

i am curious, why is that? is it the case that 9w isnt necessarily brighter for purple and that 3w mixes better? and according to that pricing structure wouldnt it only be $5 more to get a 9w?

The 9W is a little brighter, but the 3W's sweet spot is Cyan and TruPurple.  They are equivalently bright to a 1-Up Rebel or P4, etc.  Not sure how I see $5 more, but it would be $35 more is you wanted a 9W LED with FoC.  I see a spot where there may be some confusion though...if a person wants a premium color AND a 9W LED with FoC.  Premium colors automatically get 9W LEDs, so it is an either/or scenario.  If a person upgraded to a 9W LED for a non-premium color (Green for example) it would end up being the same as a premium color with the same level LED.  Hopefully that makes sense now.  I will think about a way to re-word it to make it more clear.

Ok i think i understand. Foc price is for the non-premium 3w colors and the premium color upgrade is if you want a 9w but no FoC. (since u need to use a 9w to produce the color anyways?) and if you get the premium with foc upg then its a flat price and has both features.

Last question. If i decide I dont need another blade added to my collection would this knock down the price at all?
