[color=red]How heavy do you think a lightsaber would be?

I mean, it's light...it's gotta be light (no pun intended). But thats kinda to light to fight w/, don't ya think? but then theres the hilt...do you think different hilts are different wieghts?

I'd say it'd be about...3lbs..ecause the balde wouldn't wiegh much and I don't think the hilt would eaither.[/color]

yeah... i've always wondered about that (not really:)) It looks like the lightsaber is really heavy when you're in strong mode, but that doesn't make any sense. i would say that it's probably 1.5 kilograms. (I think that about 3 pounds)

Well, I believe it kinda has a "sucking-in" effect, like it's sucking in the air around it, (prolly where the wwrrrrrrrrr sound comes from). That makes it kinda heavy feeling...i dunno...:uhm:

For the love of... it's a fictioanl weapon! It doesn't matter how heavy it is! Is this really what occupies people's thoughts?

and I can tell you: the energy of the blade produces a gyroscopic effect which makes it seem heavy. it's pretty hard to move a lightsaber fast. the hild is light, but the blade isn't.

id say the blade is weightless and the hilt would be about 6 pounds.

do you 2 guys above me read posts at all? please do so next time. I have just explained that the blade has got a giroscopic effect which makes it seem heavy! that's why it's hard to move it, and why only jedi can use it effectively. remember Han Solo when he wanted to cut the taun taun to warm luke in Episode 5... it was hard for him to do such cheap business like cutting a dead lying animal. btw if the blade had no weight, they couldn't spin it like it would. of course, light itself has no weight, but the giroscopic effect really makes the saber heavy.
