Note: The Original Recipe Whackscalibur includes the Hybrid Blade and is the most durable model. The Optimized option includes the Jenny Craig (minimum blade specs), Freeballing (no blade glue to reduce weight), and an Aetherfoam blade. It's the lightest and most resposive model possible.
I could tell you that Whackscalibur is the greatest sword ever. That it is the lightest (6oz - 8oz depending on options) and yet most durable (hybrid Durafoam/Aetherfoam and Master Core construction) sword you will ever own. That it will change the things you can do in your fighting.
But frankly, I'm going to let Warlord Sir Tato do it:
"Warlord Sports has always been a really great company that has provided a product of unmatched caliber. However, something about their pre-built swords never quite 'did it' for me. The swords are a durable product, and pretty light, but I always felt like I could build something just a little lighter from their Aethertubes. After all, competition in sports is about the accumulation of marginal gains, and a sword a half ounce lighter is going to move that much faster. Those little differences can mean making it out of the pools at Keep, or having to wait till next year.
I'm sure I'm not the only one - you dumpster dive in Goodwills for golf clubs, cut the heads off, and stick an aethertube on them. The only problem is not all golf clubs are created equal, and when you build swords from a used base, you never know what you're getting.
Sometimes you'd get good swords. Sometimes you'd get bad ones that are top heavy and a waste of material. Sometimes you'd get a light sword that would snap on the first day of use. But sometimes you'd get an amazing sword - light and durable. We dubbed these random swords "Whackscalibur," and revered them as a rare and holy gift.
And when they break, as they always do, so does your heart.
I had the distinct pleasure of stress testing one of these new swords, and I knew from the get-go that this was an incredible piece of equipment. These swords were light - the tapered kitespar shifted the weight away from the tip, single-handedly fixing my one complaint about WLS swords. The balance was amazing - it reminded me of the way swords felt back when funnoodle was legal. The sword performs so well, it is virtually indistinguishable from divine magic.
The composite tube increased the longevity of the sword far beyond Aethertube. I'm not the best warlord, but I do have one of the highest training volumes - about 4-5 days a week. I got dozens of hours of hard fighting before I wore through the durafoam, several times what I get from any other sword. I'm not talking about class games. That's hours of ditching, cross-game practices with Dagorhir and Darkon, and a large volume of block-strike and drills. The sword was so light as to feel delicate in my hands, but it stood up to the hardest abuse I could possibly put it through - I learned to trust the tapered .524 core when it protected me from glaives and two-handers from Darkon. A fighter with a lower volume than me, or one that does not do specific training to build power, is going to get hundreds of hours of field time out of it.
This is game changing. You don't need to build a dozen swords and hope you get lucky. You don't have to spend weekends hunting for good cores. You don't need a sword bag full of twenty swords built for performance, and separate, durable swords for training.
Now, you can just buy Whackscalibur. Or maybe two. Definitely two."
