Modern Standard Belgeri - Aluminum Splash
Modern Standard Begleri - Aluminum Splash
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 is sized at 16mm tall by 16mm wide, giving them the same overall size as two of our Hydra beads stacked together. The Modern Standard ship in a lightweight configuration, which is perfect for comfortable, casual play. But this series is Hardcore Compatible, meaning that it is designed to accommodate the weighted beads of the “Hardcore Gut System” which enable players to customize the weight and feel of the set, for their optimal setup. The aluminum version ships with two randomly selected aluminum "Newton" cores (available in black, green, red, blue, and purple). Heavy metal Newtons are sold separately in this shop, or visit www.aroundsquare.com for additional options.
The aluminum splash Modern Standards feature a beautiful multi-colour splash anodizing. Each bead is unique and striking. The finish is reasonably robust, but will mark, scratch, and ding up over time, which is the nature of the beast with all begleri, and particularly with aluminum beads.
