I like UltraSabers. The staff is really good at handling things too. They are super quick when things are in stock also.

I'm not sure what you can get for 250, but these are well worth the investment. I suggest going for a saber with premium sound, clash on flash, and an UltraEdge Medium or Heavy grade blade.

I had a Premium sound saber, and then upgraded it to an Emerald one. In the end, this thing cost me about 600 bucks - BUT WORTH EVERY DAMN PENNY!!!!!! If you can afford an Emerald saber - DO IT!

It's the best toy I have EVER had!

Hope this helps!

I bought my 2 from Ultra Sabres but way over the 250 mark, they are quite a good brand and I find them well balance.
There are other brands around and they are all very good, but all well over the 250 mark.

You can purchase just the hilt and this would be cheaper, but really buying a light sabre with out a blade isn't much chop.

Zing at times has light sabres at and around the 250 mark that you may be looking for, they are not battle ready so you cant go around duelling all your buddies, but check carefully on the RL standards that you are buying the correct type and also you have to purchase a Sabre that it is a good guy (RL) that you can use and display on troops etc.

All the best on the Quest
yes it rhymes

I got mine from Saber Forge...I love my saber but I have a lot I could say about the company it self. I wont as this is a happy place and I don't want to start a war. I find that a lot of company's have different tiers so depending on your budget you can get one for a good price. I personally am not a fan of US but that's a personal preference on design and not anything to do with the company it self.

here is a pic of mine. in the end it was around $580 mark.

I do like the way SaberForge makes their sabers look distressed. It's a really cool option. That's a great looking hilt, Cameron.

Hi

If i am correct you might be able to get standard Force FX lighrsaber for around the 200/250+ mark but you might have to look around for one.
if you are able to you can try
