I'm new to these parts, and I'm embarking on a Roman Props MK1 build. I plan to put together a NanoB - Neopixel build, inclusive of the Rudy Pando Crystal chamber.
I won't go further into depth, but at the moment I was looking to familiarise myself with the parts I'll need first.
My first point is to ask about the SK6812 LED strips. Would you recommend the Neopixel explicit ones, or do others that aren't as costly but match the specs of the Neopixel strips, suffice?
That said, I wanted to ask what the best practice is for a blade. I've seen the clear tube and the frosted white blade tubes, what is considered the best for clarity?
Following on from that, is a simple foam inlay for the tube diffuse enough with either of the tubes or should I consider using a clear tube only with the foam insert?
I appreciate your advice, I have looked about the forum and I couldn't see an answer to address my exact thoughts, if I've missed one, please point me in the right direction :)
