    I would like to request a parabolic tip (neopixel style) for thick walled 1" blades that has a larger gluing edge inside the blade than current thick-walled options.

    I see you followed the suggested method on wiring your blade. My blades only have 3 wires coming off both strips: Positive(22ga), NEgative(22ga), and Data(26ga). I basically use a modified method...
