Question RE: TCSS v Saberforge Part Compatibility
« on: July 30, 2019, 08:16:16 PM »
Hey FX Forums, skill testing question for you.

If hypothetically, I was looking at building a Saberforge ASP saber.. but there were 1 or 2 parts (extensions in particular) from TCSS that I really wanted to include in my saber build..

Could I, hypothetically, screw them together?
Are the MHS parts and ASP parts the same dimensions to do something like that?
There is a particular "Gear" from TCSS I bought ages ago that I wanted to use, but I've been really loving the new stuff Saberforge has to offer.. Wondering if such an endeavour is possible.

Has anybody tried this?
This will be the subject of my next report. May the Force be with you.

No, they are nowhere near compatible. Also, SFs stuff is essentially crap, the ASP system was SFs pathetic attempt of copying the TCSS MHS system.

I dueled against someone with an ASP hilt a couple of years ago, and I almost died laughing as I watched their hilt fall apart during the fight. Needless to say, my opponent lost, and I ONLY use MHS. as a base for almost all of the sabers Ive built through the years,

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And theres a fresh one if you mouth off again.

I'll admit some of the Saberforge ASP parts look interesting which might be fine for a "shelf queen" display saber but the better threading on MHS is more suitable for dueling sabers so its just as well they aren't compatible imo. I only use MHS as well, and genuine TCSS MHS parts (sometimes modified) have been used on many 'masterpieces' by some of the best elite sabersmiths in this hobby's history, so you won't go wrong sticking with MHS.
