Hilt Dimensions and Weights

Hilt Dimensions and Weights

Postby Kyyanno » Wed Jul 22, 2015 1:48 pm

From the Ludosport Website, rules on Saber dimensions and weights: (Hilt length and weight have been converted in brackets to imperial measurements as that's what a lot of the American crowd use)

Three types of light saber can be used for the sport: long, short and double.

The “long saber” (commonly: “light saber”) must have a hilt of a minimum length of 26 centimetres (10.25") and a maximum length of 32 centimetres (Just over 12.5"). The blade, a tube of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 millimetres with a gauge of 2 millimetres, must come out of the hilt for exactly 87 centimetres. The weight of the hilt must be between 500 and 700 grams (1lb 1.6oz to 1lb 8.7oz).

The “short saber” (commonly known as “light dagger”) must have a hilt of a minimum length of 18 centimetres (Just over 7") and a maximum length of 26 centimetres (10.25"). The blade, a tube of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 millimetres with a gauge of 2 millimetres, must come out of the hilt for exactly 66 centimetres. The weight of the hilt must be between 400 and 600 grams (0lb 14oz to 1lb 5.2oz).

The “double saber” (commonly known as “saberstaff”) must have a hilt of a minimum length of 40 centimetres (15.75") and a maximum length of 50 centimetres (19.75").

The blades, tubes of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 millimetres with a gauge of 2 millimetres each, must come out of the hilt for exactly 76 centimetres. The weight of the hilt must be between 600 and 800 grams (1lb 5.2oz to 1lb 12.2oz).

In any case, the cap must be hemispherical and not ogival (pointed).

Once the switch has been turned on and the blade is illuminated, the saber is considered to be “armed”. Otherwise it is considered “unarmed”.

No sabers without light or sound are permitted.

The hilts cannot have cutting, barbed or dangerous parts in the event they come into contact with the adversary’s body.


Below is a list (I will update it as new entries are added) of Saber hilts from various manufacturers, their lengths and weights. If you own hilts, or find their dimensions online, feel free to add them via reply. Please make sure you state the manufacturers name, the hilt model, length and weight.



SaberForge

From SF Directly:

All of our sabers are machined from aluminum and weigh about 1 pound, give or take a few ounces. Approximate hilt lengths are given below:

Epoch 13"
Guardian 11"
Destiny 12"
Fallen 11.5"
Silver Knight 11"


(For those of you too young to know better, 1 pound is around 450g approx.)

UltraSabers

From US directly via e-mail:

Most of our hilts weigh between 0.75-1.0 lbs with electronics installed. But we don’t have the exact weights of every hilts with sound and batteries installed.

After asking on the Ultrasaber forums for help from members, some of them have been kind enough to weigh their hilts to add to our lists!

Manticore (Obsidian v3, High Profile pommel, new Recharge Port, red AV switch, Covertec Wheel, blade plug installed):

Archon v2.1 (Obsidian v3, Archon pommel, new Recharge Port, green AV switch, Covertec Wheel, blade plug installed, 4-channel Emerald Driver)
Weight = 15 oz (425) <--- this may have been a mis-weigh as my own Archon came in at 531g
Length = 12.5" (Mine measured in at 315mm)

Manticore Ce (Emerald,V3 sound, blue A/V switch with archon pommel and covertech wheel installed)
