PRODUCT INFORMATION

The dark side of the Force is strong with this one! The Assassin is an aggressive-looking saber.

Select your hue and begin the dueling. It is one of the strongest-looking sabers; your opponents will undoubtedly notice it. In addition, the emitter has various holes where you might attach knobs and freebies to personalize it further.

VHC: This saber is compatible with VHC-compatible accessories and can be linked to parts of other VHC sabers thanks to its VHC threads (Variable Hilt Component standard by Nexus Sabres). Nevertheless, there isn't a threaded hole for a covertec wheel. Additionally, unless you utilize couplers as extenders—one internally threaded coupler, followed by the converter module, an externally threaded coupler, and finally the pommel—the converter module will not fit with this pommel.

Like all others, this magnificent saber has an aluminum 6063 hilt. Each saber has beautiful finishes and sturdy construction made of durable materials, providing the best re-creation of a legendary design or an incredibly comfortable and fashionable dueling weapon. 

SABER CONFIGURATIONS

Here's a simple breakdown of our available configurations. 

  • Standard: the base model now has a Xeno 3 board and offers excellent audio, numerous effects, and customization via an SD card or smartphone app. Baselit sabers, designed for heavy dueling, have a lighter blade than standard sabers. It's ideal if you want to perform in stunt/duel performances or cosplay or don't require the Neopixel Blade. 
  • Premium : It's the choice we want the most! A Neopixel blade on the same brand-new Xeno 3 board. The blade's high-density LED strip provides an incredible appearance and a multitude of visual effects. Currently customizable via an SD card and, as always, a mobile app. 

BLADE LENGTH

  •  Dimensions of the hilt: 32,5cm / 12.8 inches in length
  •  Dimensions of the blade: You can select a length of 72, 82, or 92 cm (28, 32, or 36 inches) with our standard diameter of 1 inch. Standard swords have a polycarbonate thickness of 2 mm, whereas Deluxe and Premium swords have a 3 mm thickness. 
  •  Recommended length of your lightsaber: Many fencing federations and academies stipulate that the entire length of your dueling saber must not exceed 110cm (39.4 to 43.4 inches). Typically, the blade is 5 to 7 cm (2 to 3 inches) inside the hilt. If you intend to use your saber in a formal situation, select the correct size; if this bothers you, go for the more considerable blade length, which is 36 inches or 92 cm. 

 

USABILITY CHART

The critical criteria for duelists are Handling and Weight; for cosplayers, it is Style and ease of Maintenance; and for collectors, it is mostly Style.

 

STYLE & REFINEMENT

A balanced saber: elegant with many design details but not overly functional. 

HANDLING COMFORT

When a perfectly comfortable dueling hilt is combined with a unique design. An excellent middle ground.

WEIGHT

This hilt, new to the sport saber world, is lightweight enough to train with for extended periods.

MAINTENANCE

One core, an in-hilt charging port, and rarely more than two screws to detach the electronics from the hilt make this the easiest of swords.

XENO3 BLUETOOTH

There's decent Bluetooth communication with this hilt. If there are no network interferences, you can set the parameters of your sword using the app up to three feet away from your phone.

DETAILED SPECS

MAIN FUNCTIONALITIES

All of our sabers provide the following :

  • Removable polycarbonate blade
  • You can choose any color for your blade with the full RGB color picker or easy-access presets. 
  • Volume control from 0 to 100%
  • Smooth swing: These lightsabers are incredibly motion-sensitive and respond to your every move with accurate buzzing sounds. 
  • Numerous sound fonts and blade styles are pre-loaded, with the option to add and modify your own (Xeno3 sounds and colors, complete control over Proffie).
  • Hilts are built with aluminium 6063, and CE certified
  • ON XENO3 ONLY: Free mobile app control and Bluetooth compatibility. Because of the thickness of the hilt, certain sabers have poor connectivity; the production description contains more information. 

BLADE SPECS

  • Baselit sabers are powered by a 12W LED module housed in the handle. Blades are designed for heavy dueling and have a diameter of 1 inch and a thickness of 2 mm. 
  • Neopixel blades with a full-length, high-density LED strip within are found in Premium and Deluxe sabers. See their description for additional details. Polycarbonate, either 1 inch in diameter and 3 mm thick, or 7/8 inch in diameter and 2 mm thick. Although we do not recommend using the 3mm thickness for intense dueling because of the possibility of damaging the internal LED circuit, it is possible to duel with them. It is possible to purchase more blades with varying lengths, thicknesses, and widths. 
  • You may use the tip drag effect and smooth ignitions with the neopixel blades. The neopixel blades in Premium and Deluxe Sabres also significantly improve blaster effects, flash-on-clash, and saber lockups. 

BATTERY AND BOARDS

  • Rechargeable 3000mAh and 3600mAh batteries can run a saber for one to three hours, depending on whether it's a profile, neopixel, or basalt saber and the effects you're using. 
  • Never charge a USB device using a dongle, hub, fast charger, computer, or console—always use a 1A 5v USB charger. Inappropriate power outputs and charging devices will damage your board and void the warranty. 
  • If the port is visible, charging the battery can be done directly on the core (slide the core out or remove the grip part) or under the pommel piece. 
  • Every saber comes equipped with a recharge cable.

Lightsaber Guide Rev.1.1

How to Choose a Lightsaber

The lightsaber's core, not the model, controls the igniting effect, sound font, color change, smooth swinging, and Bluetooth control. While lightsaber models may differ in their underlying structures, all of the lightsaber's features will remain the same as long as the core version remains the same. Every version at LaserPointerWorld has a pixel core.

Choose your preferred lightsaber model based on the hilt details.

Based on the hilt design specifics (such as character names, pattern information, and structural elements), choose the lightsaber model that best suits your needs.

Further customize the lightsaber's attributes based on your personal preferences.

A variety of hilt colors, traditional or weathered styles, 32- or 36-inch blade lengths, and straight or curved blades are available.

Select the lightsaber core that meets your functional requirements.

The core is the control center for all of the lightsaber's functions, determining the effects it can produce.

How to Use a Lightsaber

  1. Basic Usage

Finding the lightsaber core is the first step towards using one. You can check out LaserPointerWorld's tutorial manuals or the instructions that came with the package.

  1. App Control

You might also need to learn how to set up a Bluetooth connection and use an app to control lightsabers with S-RGB or SNV4 cores.



Customization

For lightsabers with SNV4 or Proffie cores, you may need to download configuration files. We provide a selection of configuration files for you to download.

  1. Recommended Tutorials

You can view videos tutorials from certain Jedi masters in addition to the official LaserPointerWorld tutorials. The following YouTube channel is suggested by us:

After-Sales and Modifications

Since the core contains electronic chips, circuit or software issues may occur during installation. You can contact us for troubleshooting solutions.

Proffie vs Neopixel: Which Lightsaber Tech is Right for You

When discussing lightsabers, it's important to take into account their many variations and configurations. Many fans of the real lightsaber are actually not very familiar with it, especially when it comes to the confusion between Neopixel and Proffie lightsabers. This article will go into detail about the connections and differences between Neopixel and Proffie lightsabers, making it easier to understand and more convenient to use. In order to help you pick between the Neopixel and Proffie sabers and give you a better understanding of both, this essay will go into great detail about their differences and connections.

What are Neopixel and proffie lightsabers?

Prior to deciphering the distinctions between the two, it is imperative that we ascertain the definitions of Neopixel and Proffie lightsaber. Once these are established, it becomes effortless to differentiate between the two.

The lightsaber community did not inspire the name Neopixel. Nonetheless, lightsaber aficionados now frequently refer to lightsabers as having LED strips inside their blades. There are other distinct applications of that technology, such as Golden Harvest, Proffie, Xenopixel, and others. Thus, one of those technologies is meant when the term Neopixel is mentioned about lightsabers.

To begin with, Neopixel truly refers to a particular kind of blade. This type of blade differs from the RGB saber's blade in that it is made of LEDs and is distributed between several LED lights. As a result, the ignition effect of the RGB saber is different, giving rise to a different effect.

The proffie saber sets itself apart from the RGB and SN V4 variants with its distinct saber configuration. It is not the same as the Neopixel lightsaber in certain ways, but since it uses Neopixel blades, it is still a Neopixel. All of the features of a Neopixel saber are essentially included in the proffie saber; however, not every Neopixel saber has the same functionality as a proffie saber. For that reason, the main focus of this essay is the differences between the Neopixel saber's proffie and ordinary versions.

NEOPIXEL OR BASELIT?

Although the traditional RGB (baselit) lightsaber is adequate for active fighting, wealthy collectors will find the new neopixel technology far more appealing. With a brighter light and a unique radiance akin to what we've all loved in the movies, using a neopixel lightsaber offers a far richer experience.

Neopixel not only makes a lightsaber brighter, but it also adds versatility to its design. Neopixel sabers are made with many LED strips inside the blade as opposed to only the hilt. This implies that you have many greater options for colors, special effects, and customized animations. 

Difference between Proffie and Neopixel Lightsabers


The most crucial first step is to distinguish between a Neopixel and a Proffie lightsaber. To put it simply, a Neopixel is a unique blade, while a Proffie is a particular kind of lightsaber core. While all Proffie lightsaber blades are Neopixel blades, they aren't always Proffie sabers; they could also be SN v4 blades.

A number of embedded LEDs set the Neopixel apart from the RGB, making it a superior blade that enables more intricate and varied lighting effects. The Proffie, the saber's central component, has the ability to be altered beyond its current capabilities, allowing users to modify the blades' color and sound. It also has an excellent soundboard that produces a unique sound effect.

Proffie vs Neopixel: Differences in Sound Version

Proffie lightsaber can be customized. The Proffie is an open-source platform with customizable fonts, blade styles, and other effects.

While the standard Neopixel cannot be altered on its own and has pre-installed sounds, it might be a better option for people who are not familiar with programming.

Proffie vs Neopixel: Difference in Blades

The standard Neopixel lightsaber offers a wide range of color options for the blade effects; the Neopixel can be changed from one color to another, and the different colored blades create a variety of visual effects; forms of the saber, like Djem So or Juyo, can be rendered smoothly, which when paired with the different colored blades, creates an amazing visual experience.

The Proffie saber, on the other hand, offers a greater range of customizable blade styles. More aggressive tactics are better suited for blades like Flame and Unstable, and Proffie owners can entirely customize the appearance of their blades to match their distinctive combat form.

Proffie vs Neopixel: The Dueling Experience Difference

The Neopixel lightsaber is a fantastic tool for fighting; its complex designs and shifting colors will make you stand out in combat. The Neopixel flashes a bright light simultaneously as if it were coming from your fingertips during moves like Soresu or Ataru, which makes for an incredibly comfortable dueling experience.

Though the Neopixel saber has a striking appearance, the Proffie offers a more intense fighting experience. Dueling is made incredibly lifelike by advanced technologies, such as impact sensors that faithfully replicate the crackling sound of swords colliding. The blade's intricate touch effects improve the dueling experience even more. Similar to a genuine combat, the clash detection feature keeps swords from locking up and causing injury. Proffie lightsabers, which are designed to provide a greater degree of immersion, are unmatched fighting tools for fighters aiming to learn more aggressive forms like Juyo or Vaapa.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A NEOPIXEL LIGHTSABER?

First off, if necessary, you can engage in some light to medium level dueling. Although some damage is possible due to the flexible LED structure inside the blade, we advise against recreating the entire Darth Maul combat scenario.

Neopixel lightsabers provide cosplayers and collectors with a dream come true outside of combat. Your creativity is the sole restriction on the various configurations of blaster bolt deflection, unstable blade effects, animations, and blade scrolling effects.

Neopixel allows you to create a fully customizable lightsaber that imitates your preferred George Lucas character or, for a more customized experience, you can create an avatar outside of canon.

These constructions have the benefit of having separate LEDs that may be individually controlled for various effects. With this, you have far greater adaptability than with regular RGB baselit lightsabers. Everything else about the build is much the same. All of the electronics, batteries, and soundboards needed to improve your lightsaber experience are still housed in the hilt.

Neopixel technology is more power-hungry than RGB lightsabers, so bear that in mind. Despite using LED technology, they will consume up a battery more quickly. Consider bringing extra batteries if you intend to use your Neopixel lightsaber during a cosplay event or party. 

Conclusion

In summary, the proffie lightsaber is a kind of Neopixel saber, but it's critical for buyers to recognize the distinctions between the two. Programming settings and customisation are supported by the proffie saber, which is crucial for individuals who enjoy creating their own lightsaber effects.
