  • Chef's Speical - Custom Dyed Delrins

    This month's special features some of our popular delrin products, in unique colour ways. These items have been hand dyed to produce an understate teal, and a deep eggplant purple, true to the photos in the listing. Delrin is a terrific material, but it is commonly available only in a handful of colours. Among the most frequent requests are a teal/ turquoise colour, and a purple.. so here's your chance to grab one!

    Teal Modern Standard Begleri

    Aroundsquare's "Standards" begleri series is our homage to the ubiquitous “standard issue” Greek barrel shaped begleri. This series is a contemporary adaptation of the original timeless design, with a slightly refined shape, precision machined and polished to perfection. They feature the same 1:1 aspect ratio favoured by most players, and a compact form factor that is small enough to slip easily past the string instead of binding, and sufficiently rounded for comfortable play. The right angles in the design provide excellent bead control without compromising on nimbleness. 

    The Modern Standard sets are sized at 16mm tall by 16mm wide, giving them the same overall size as two of our micro standard beads stacked together. The beads feature a generous top bore to easily accommodate 550 paracord. 

    Details

    • Teal Delrin Modern Standard bead weight: 5g
    • SS Micro Standard (included): 16g
    • Total setup weight: 21g 
    • Hardcore compatible (work with any of our hardcore gut beads)
    • Top bore: 4mm (for use with 550 paracord)

    All sets come with extra cords, stickers, and a carry bag, although colours and quantities may not be as shown in the photos.

    Teal Commons Begleri - Stainless Steel/ Delrin Edition

    Our Commons beads are AO2's take on the classic barrel shape. The SS/ delrin is presented as an extra light setup in this design, for players wanting something resembling the classic Greek style setups. This set will work fine on a thin cord for long game play, but where it excels is in the short game space. Lighter sets are very well suited for short game begleri because they carry less momentum, making them easier to accelerate, decelerate, and change direction during rebounds. The low weight, coupled with the multi-bead arrangement makes them much less punishing on the knuckles as well. 

    A fresh colour for a classic and inexpensive set, if you don't have one of these sets already, they're definitely a treat to play.. bead order can be inverted for a very different slinging experience.

    Details:

    • Featuring: 2x Stainless Steel Commons beads + 2x Teal Delrin Commons
    • Set weight: ~17.7g all in, depending on cord choice
    • Available in three colour options

    General Info on the Commons Design

    The Commons get their name from the ubiquity of their shape in traditional Greek begleri and komboloi. These barrel-shaped beads are timeless in their simplicity, and very similar beads can be found in a wide range of materials ranging from inexpensive plastics through to semi-precious stones. The Commons design is our take on this classic shape, and the result is both fresh and familiar. Although they have commonalities with our Standards series, they nonetheless stand out in Aroundsquare's lineup. The stacked bead design has a distinctly traditional vibe, but the choice of lightly polished titanium gives them a clean, minimalist look that fits squarely in our range.

    The individual Common beads have a 1:1 aspect ratio, meaning the two-stack setup is longer feeling than most of our sets, much like our Micro Bosses. However, the cylindrical shape of the beads provides a nice element of control when manipulating the beads during play. The beads feature a 3.5mm "Goldilocks" bore, making them suitable for play with either 275 or 550 paracord, and the generously rounded bore makes it relatively easy to thread 550. However, where these beads really thrive is on thinner cord, much like the common Greek beads on which they are based. They will ship with two strands of our new 2mm high density kevlar cord, as well as a selection of 550 paracord. 

    Nowhere Plank - Purple Delrin Edition

    The delrin version of the Nowhere plank is lightweight, durable, and feels great in the hand. If you don't already love delrin, these planks will kindle a spark in your heart. The material is smooth and warm to the touch, unlike any other polymer materials we know. The finish is slightly polished, and has a soft grip to it that is noticeably different from acrylic, ultem, or any of the metals materials

    Nowhere Plank is a small rectangle. Across our broad range of products, if we're being real, the Plank stands out for being poorly designed as any kind of skill toy. The shape is not conducive to flipping around between the fingers. If you want that, our knucklebones are the evolved form, go buy one. This Plank is something else. It's effortless. If anything, it's more of a simple mindfulness tool than a skill toy. The Plank is something basic, even primordial. It just feels satisfying to hold in the hand. It is certainly possible to flip it around and do some basic manipulations with it, but where the Plank truly excels is in situations where full on manipulations would be an unwelcome distraction, either to you, or to others around you. Given the mindfulness aspect (now, here) and the idle meandering it supports (as opposed to conscious trickery), we've dubbed this little unit the Nowhere Plank. It may not be for you and that's fine. But if you're feeling it, we've got you.

    Details:

    • Length x Width x Height: 80x20x10mm
    • Purple Delrin weight: ~21.5g
