MKUltras - Mini Sigma Long Form Editions
MKUltras - Mini Sigma Long Form
The MKUltras Mini Sigma Long Form consists of 51x 9mm beads, with a 11.8mm Micro Boss bead to close/ adjust the loop. These long form sets are optimized for raindrops, wrist wear, and bead counting. The cylindrical shape of the Mini Sigmas, and relatively larger number of beads makes them excellent for raindrops, and the beads give a very distinctive look when worn on the wrist. The long forms, in general, are less nimble for flipping and tricks, compared with the shorter length Ultras and begleri, but with practice a wide range of moves and flows can be performed. The longer, heavier sets are particularly suited for open-handed play, and low key flipping, which will appeal to players who like the option of manipulating the beads, but are less interested in complex technical play.

- NOTE ON FINISHES: All sets will trend towards a tumbled natty look over time. The PVD is the most durable finish available, but will wear and dull as the beads are hammered. The blue will fade initially with touch, and the colour saturation will dull then stabilize (see comparison photo for reference), but the anodizing is ultimately less robust than the PVD.

- All beads drilled with 3.5mm bore
NOTE: The pricing on the Ultras is a function of the per bead production cost x the number of beads. With sets requiring many small beads, the production savings in raw material is negligible, but the per bead costs for handling and finishing are multiplied by a larger factor. This is why sets with many small beads can end up being more costly than those with fewer larger beads.
