I prefer a staff. Really need to work on getting one made one of these days. A Curved saber will come first.


Time will bring the real end of our trial.  One day they'll be no remnants

Single, I'd probably kill myself with a staff (if it was real).

I'm going to add to this as i'd love to see more posts.

Personally I love the idea of a staff however, I have yet to make it useable in duels.  Though i'm going to start practicing some form.

bit of an odd one out here... but i tend to use my custom 'shoto staff' more than anything else.

hilt is only 14 inches long, with two 26 inch blades attached... it's a pretty unique style, but works well for me :)

Nice and different!



I like single hilts better even though I'm 6'3 and a double blade would probably  be good for me.

Single saber.  Two for those that are skilled at dual wielding.

Single blade, 36" long. I also like a slightly longer hilt, 11"-12"  for a comfortable two hand grip, Katana style.

The character backstory that I'm working on is a Kanan-SW-Rebels-style order 66 survivor who uses a blaster most often to fit in but isn't afraid to pull out his single hilt when needed.

When it comes to staffs (staves?) the explanation I like comes from Lord Kas'im in the AWESOME Bane trilogy. I can't remember it word for word but it is essentially that the double bladed advantage is that it confuses the enemy but if the enemy realizes that when they know where one blade is, they automatically know where the other is then it's disadvantages are greater.

You were probably looking for a more practical answer but I just really love that trilogy.

double blade for sure,
probably because I practice the kungfu staff.
Think it simply looks cooler too  :cheesy:
Do what you like, say what you like, be what you like. just be cool at it.
