Take your lightsaber play to the next level

I first designed the Ascend in 2004 to be the perfect Jedi weapon. Due to this designs popularity I have made it available to everyone. I am pleased to be able to offer the Crystal Shard 4.5 sound card from Plecter Labs. This high quality, mid level device is a standard for the Ascend saber. You can have the quality of an Ascend saber with Plecter Labs sound for under $500!

Dimensions: 11 3/4″ long, 1 5/16″ grip diameter

Weight: 15 oz. / 425 g (approx. battery in, no blade)


The Crystal Shard (TM) can be loaded with any .wav sound font which is compatible with Plecter Labs products. Sound fonts are available from

The Crystal Shard 4.5 comes with;

  • 3 sound fonts loaded with amazing, clear lightsaber sounds

The Ascend with CS4.5 also comes with a high power Tri-Cree LED STANDARD!

All programming and fine tuning will be done before the saber ships out to you so it will be ready to go out of the box. Programming is only an option for advanced users.

    On the order page I saw an option to add a $12 belt clip but didn’t see options for Covertec wheels. Does the gcs ascend come with a wheel installed?
