Gumballs begleri were designed by @TotalArtist, a skilltoy collector, begleri player, and the maker of Gumdrops Begleri. Begleri is a skilltoy, two beads on a cord, used to do hand tricks, a relaxing past time that tends to ease the mind.
Gumballs begleri are medium-sized organic shaped Grade 5 Titanium round hollow beads, available here in the 23g version of the set (just over 11g/bead). Gumballs are the most round titanium set ever produced. They are medium sized beads that feel substantial in the hand, without the big bubbly feel that a lot of round shaped beads have. It’s not too big or too small, with beads at about 20mm, and they’re not too light or too heavy. Gumballs will fit nicely in your hand, and in your pocket. The weight gives you plenty of momentum for all your advanced tricks, with the comfort a beginner can appreciate. The hollowness of the 23g version, gives them a light, fast and floaty feel during play, and it also creates a satisfying “clack” sound during play, that you’re sure to fall in love with. The 28g version of Gumballs has some heft, but with a smooth feel.
These beads were very difficult and expensive to machine, due to the hollowness of them, and the need to maintain weight consistency. A lot of machinists turned down this project, but we’re happy that it’s finally here, and available for you, in very limited quantity.
Gumballs are available in six color options, and you might see them listed in matching and non-matching sets of beads. They are custom anodized by The Totalartist. The set you see in the main listing photo is the exact set you will receive. Anodizing is not an exact science, so expect the beads to have other color highlights, or variations. Each bead is unique.
We are happy with the way Gumballs Begleri turned out. Your Gumballs set will be packaged in a box, with samples of 425 cord, a pouch, and stickers. If you’ve been waiting to start learning begleri tricks, it’s the perfect time to get started.
