Been so long that i just can't remember unsure

Been water testing all my stuff for Jay for the site
and noticed my R2 saber SUNK!!!!!

It's(obviously) the top one in the pic.

Just want confirmation that they do sink in water(hopefully)

Can you get it to almost float?

You are spot on James Cool I think i was being a bit heavy
handed when i first tested it. You have to gently place
it onto the water and it will float Very Happy

Just tried the 3 different R2 sabers i have and here are the results:

Regular R2 saber (green): Saber floats when gently placed on to the water, tap it once and it will sink.

Droids R2 saber (bit darker green): Same result, Saber floats when gently placed on to the water, tap it once and it will sink.

Glasslite R2 saber (light green) : Saber floats and this one doesn't sink when tapped. Also dropped it in the water and came back to surface.


Now, i am curious, can some others with an Glasslite R2 try there saber to see if it's doesn't sink like the regular sabers.

Cheers, Dennis.

Well not looking to trow all weapons in a bucket off water at once, but if you like to have some results off other weapons, name and i'll test them.

by the way, yesterday i looked at the main TIG site, and you did some nice updates, but i noticed a few copy/paste errors in the lightsaber section, like with the revalve it sabers, they are not all cast in red.

cheers, Dennis.

by the way Wolff, i know you have one, since the glasslite saber pic on the main TIG site came from you, can you float test this saber plz.

anyone else who has one and could give it a try that would help alot.

Thanks.
