    Ok. First things first, I need to clear the air. Andrew over at Deneki wrote a great review of the 7126 Method. But he got one very important thing wrong – the name. We all know that a lightsaber is an elegant weapon (as is that method), but it’s designed for close in work, not distance. So, I’ve dubbed it the “Star Destroyer” (Empire was the best movie after all) for more cinematographic accuracy.

    Sounds like a nice stick. The deeper load does not appeal to me (from the Deneki review). But I'll try one out for sure. When the go on clearance in 5 or 6 years :)
