Okay, I've had this saber for a couple months, and it bothers the hell out of me. It was sold as a Ledy saber, and to me the mold looks 100%, but it's the plastic that keeps bringing me back to look at it over and over. The pictures may not capture it fully, but it's pink without the translucency of the examples I've seen. To be honest, the examples have a look not unlike jelly. Mine, while translucent enough for light to pass through, looks pretty solid. Anyway, after months of going back and forth, I decided it might be best if I ask someone who has more experience. I've lined it up with a Taiwan and PBP saber to illustrate the definite mold differences

Thanks, AJ. Silly, I know, but the opaque plastic concerned me.

Often the ledy sabers have what I call a waxy look to their plastic. I don't think all ledy sabers always have this look to them as I have seen some that do not. The waxy looking ones also have a common issue with the red color fading out of them leaving behind the yellowish plastic as if the dye wasn't mixed in it well or something. As for the ones that dont have that waxy look, they retain their color better. I think this saber is ok.
