Hello There
Well since I recently extended both my Stunt Sabers and had a lot of extra room I came up with the Idea of having a 3" Section where you can add up 2 three weights to balance the Lightsaber, so far one has worked perfectly and puts the balance point right at the Emitter.

Wow, that´s genius GFORCE :D

Is that a copper tube you´ve used to slide the weights on?

That is mighty clever!

Actually that is a standard brass pipe and double female coupler. All picked up at my local Ace Hardware.

Still working on my first saber, but noticing that I was most likely going to have to weight the hilt to get it balanced.

3M has just come out with some new stuff to balance tires, but it is simply a lead alternative that is flexible, heavy, and has 3M adhesive on one side. Comes in two widths, and you can simply cut it with scissors to get just the right weight you need.

That is what I am going to be looking for when it comes time to balance my own saber.

Cool that sounds like some awesome stuff, kinda reminds me of the Stick on Wheel balance weights you use on Alloy Wheels.
