hi, i saw somewhere in the forums Im pretty sure it was here, about when duelling, each time a hard hit connects there was a <u>slight sudden increase in the light to the el wires</u>. Ive since lost that topic and cant find it again. does anyoneon know is this a standard EL quirk (I've yet to get my parts to build mine), or is this an improvement someones made. I am sure I was'nt imagining it..

I believe what you are think about is the clash effect that works with the led sabers. There is a clash sensor that the hasbro sound board or corbin's driver uses to detect contact and then change the drive to the led. I do not believe that you can do this with a el blade.

Don't make me destroy you...

I don't remember that... it's certainly not a standard quirk of all EL. It is possible to use the Hasbro board and make it dim, but not brighter upon a hit. It probably could be done the other way but I don't remember anyone making electronics to do that.
