Are laser diodes durable enough to be used as light sources in prop lightsaber hilts?

I'm seriously considering using a laser diode instead of a CREE LED module as the light source in a Saberforge lightsaber hilt. In general, are laser diodes durable enough that I could put one inside of a lightsaber hilt and use the lightsaber for dueling, or would the impactful nature of prop lightsaber dueling destroy the diode?

I suspect not. If I were you I'd compare pricing. I suspect leds are less expensive and certainly more rugged.
