All boards come with same default font settings, for accurate usage you will need to setup the board.
How to setup or configure other blade effects:
Under each bank, there are .bg / .ft / .tg files in each sub folder such as Blaster, Clash etc. 
There is also a blade effects zipped file in the main directory, by unzipping the blade effects file you will see all possible .bg/.tg/.ft formats.
These files affect the blade. 
Feel free to try them out and then copy the one you would like to preset overwriting the old files in the sub folders. Open the files with Notepad editor.
If .bg ensure that all .bg files in the sub folder(s) are overwritten and the same. 
.bg = blade styles
.ft and .tg are effects that affect the blade styles

Blade Usage

Insert blade into emitter, insert retention screws at emitter, tighten until you feel resistance, go one round and that is sufficient. 

Blades have removable tips and diffusion film in them, tips can fly off on impact and diffusion film can crumple. These are considered normal in the event of dueling and are not covered under the warranty. 

When the tips come off, we recommended using e6000 or equivalent adhesive to attach them back. Diffusion film can be removed, straightened and then inserted again, if beyond repair a replacement blade is required. 

Blades are considered consumables if used for dueling, so consider purchasing multiples or making them yourselves. 
Do note that threaded retention holes can be worn out and will require a new hole to be tapped. It can happen if you are tightening the screws at a wrong angle, or also over tightening it will cause the threads to be stripped. This is part and process of the aluminum material that we use for the hilts. 

Neopixel Blades (Common issues)

Blade flickering a different color
If your blade flickers a different color when swinging, the blade width is a little too thin. Use painters/masking tape and go half or one round around the area above the connector. This is a quick and easy fix as polycarbonate can at times be extruded with +/- 0.1-2mm differences. 

LEDS rattling inside the blade
This is normal, we have tested hundreds of setups and this has resulted in the highest durability for everyday use and spinning. The space between the foam and blade gives it a little flex so that the LEDs do not rigidly get the full impact. 

Accessories usage

Rubber rings, screws - mostly additionals. Rubber rings can be used for extra grip, timing shims or to cushion the speaker from rattling.
