Hmmmm... I didnt consider that, as I DO want my hilts to be upgraded to FX one of these days when the wallet and I are on good terms.I’ve only used a few bubblestrips—the old Blast-Tech, Roman’s (clear, for Luke ANH), and Roy’s (frosted, for Vader and Obi-Wan).
The thing with all of the replica strips I’ve seen is that they’re already designed to slide into a clamp, and are also usually thin enough to allow for wiggle-room, in order to accommodate the switches used in in FX builds. I believe the Rebelscum replica strips are still regarded as the best, but I dunno offhand whether they need to be shaved down to fit in a clamp or not.
Wonder if its possible to swap them out, have the thick strip for display, and the thin one for when you decide to mount a blade on and play with it?
