REVIEW custom Shameem Stafflex Lightsaber | MHS Graflex Saberstaff

This is a Shameem custom Stafflex lightsaber. The custom saber, made by Shameem, is inspired by the concept of creating a double-bladed Skywalker lightsaber. Given that many Star Wars fans envisioned Rey wielding a saberstaff, this custom Stafflex design represents an alternative fate for the Skywalker lightsaber. The hilt is primarily comprised of two Graflex blade holders (uppers) with some Modular Hilt System V1 parts from The Custom Saber Shop.

The Stafflex lightsaber is comprised primarily of three sections: two replica Graflex uppers on either end and a 10 inch long middle grip section. The pieces connect together with threading. Both Graflex uppers contain a Graflex to Modular Hilt System V1 (MHS V1) adapter from The Custom Saber Shop. The middle grip section is an MHS V1 10″ Double female threaded connector with a series of long, black T-track grips. The long grip pieces are made of a firm, plasticy material (rather than a rubbery one) and are notched in center, denoting the middle of the entire saberstaff. The grips are attached to hilt with adhesive and screws in the notched section.

The two Graflex uppers mirror each other, allowing the features on the Stafflex lightsaber like the bunny ears, red buttons, and activation boxes, align nicely. The overall hilt is clean, symmetrical, balanced in appearance.

Unlike some other saberstaffs, Stafflex is primarily configured as a saberstaff. Since the hilt uses MHS V1 components, the end user could mix and match some of the pieces. The two individual Graflex uppers are not full length hilts on their own, however.
