Aroundsquare's Hydra Begleri are a fun yet highly capable modern adaptation of the traditional Greek multi-bead begleri. All of the Hydra sets have multiple interchangeable beads, allowing for interesting combinations and customization of weight and materials. Mix and match the Mini Hydras with some of your traditional Hydras and Micro-Hydras, for your own unique setup.
Weight: 8.7g per end
The Mini Hydras are a slightly down-sized version of the original Hydra beads, 14mm in diameter, and 7mm tall each (compared with 16 and 8 in the originals). All Mini Hydras are set up to accommodate 550 paracord. Mixed material sets can be reconfigured to provide a different a heavier or lighter feel depending on the position of the heavier beads relative to the end knots.
The Hydras are extremely playable, and despite their cylindrical shape, are surprisingly adept - particularly in the four bead configuration. The shape of the beads make them particularly well-suited for two handed tricks and transfers. They are less solid and somewhat quieter than heavier single-bead designs, and the multiple beads add a nice "fiddle factor" to each set. The slight rounding of all edges on the beads adds the overall feel.
