Vibroswords Not Sheathed on the Back?

Hello! I was just wondering if anyone might know of any vibroswords that do not rest on a character's back when sheathed? Worn at the side, just becoming invisible or anything would really be fine if anyone knows of any! Thank you!

This is an issue with all weapons that go on the back.

I believe it stems from the clipping issue, since it looks like it is at a fixed distance from the back, so it doesn't clip with the bulkier armours.

Of course, this looks really stupid with the thinner/skin tight sets.

Been around for a long time and is really annoying

The classic vibroblades still aren't aligned properly since their "fix". Left-hand blade sits too high over the shoulder. It makes me sad.

What makes me sad is that a Sentimara's left-hand one clips viciously into a BT4 female's buttock. Lame, lame, lame.

This has triggered me ever since the developers switched all non-light swords to back holster last October. That switch bugged the god-tier KOTOR-inspired Classic Vibroswords ever since.

I have put the issue in my signature and now here in this post: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=903554

Corsec Baton sheaths to your waist.. if you like the weapon style at all.

I like them as a weapon for ranged damage casters.... and have a pair on one Sentinel of mine.... but they are not to everyone's tastes.
Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.

So it looks like very other SWTOR weapon?

Well it is still smaller than the original lightsaber hilts that were as long as telephone poles and as thick as Red Pines.
