The instrument we use is Polaris SSe-1, a complex device conceived for sport use. It is neither a toy, nor a collectible.
Years of sport sparring gave us a unique expertise in the evaluation of best standards in weight, dimensions, balance and endurance of parts and materials.
Thanks to this knowledge, the lightsabers used in LudoSport Academies are designed and tested to stand the stress of the practice.
Sporting lightsabers – compared with the others – have an inverted position of the speaker, with the soundboard in the middle of the hilt. This way, the pommel can embody metal weights to balance the saber. The microUSB port simplifies recharging.
The shape of sporting lightsabers is designed to guarantee the best technical grip in each style, both single and double-handed.
Pupils start with a blue bladed lightsaber. Later on, they will choose their path and, consequently, the colour of their blade.

Blades are the real point of difference in sporting Light Saber Combat. Made in flexible polycarbonate, the official standard has the best lightness/endurance ratio, and its transparency guarantees an optimized light diffraction. Caps are in poly (PMMA), with an hemispheric shape to be more safe.
