Rule 1. The Light Sabers (SLM Website Update November 2019)

Three types of light saber can be used for the sport: long, short and double.

The “long saber” must have a hilt of a minimum length of 26 cm and a maximum length of 32 cm, with a tolerance range of 2 mm. The weight of the hilt must be between 500 and 700 gr with a tolerance range of 30 gr. The blade, a tube of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 mm with a gauge of 2 mm, must come out of the hilt for 87 cm, with a tolerance range of 5 mm.

The “short saber” must have a hilt of a minimum length of 18 cm and a maximum length of 26 cm, with a tolerance range of 2 mm. The weight of the hilt must be between 400 and 600 gr with a tolerance range of 30 gr. The blade, a tube of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 mm with a gauge of 2 mm, must come out of the hilt for 60 cm with a tolerance range of 5 mm.

The “dual-headed staff” must have a hilt of a minimum length of 41 cm and a maximum length of 54 cm, with a tolerance range of 2 mm. The weight of the hilt must be between 550 and 800 gr with a tolerance range of 30 gr. The blade, a tube of polycarbonate of a diameter of 25 mm with a gauge of 2 mm, must come out of the hilt for 73 cm with a tolerance range of 5 mm.

The length of the blade is calculated including the cap. In any case, the cap must be hemispherical and not ogival (pointed).

Once the blade is illuminated, the saber is considered to be “armed”. Otherwise it is considered “unarmed”.

Sabers without light or sound are not permitted. No delay between motion and associated light and/or sound effects shall be noticed.

For safety reasons: a) the hilts cannot have cutting, barbed or dangerous parts in the event they come into contact with the adversary’s body or uniform; b) the electronics must be equipped with batteries protected from short circuits, undervoltage and overvoltage, and be inserted inside a casing equipped with vent holes; c) the hilt assembly shall satisfy electromagnetic compatibility requirements.

In order to be used in official competitions, both hilts and blades need to comply further specific technical requirements established by SLM and its delegated entities.
