Begleri are the latest skill toy to get popular with yoyo players (sorry kendama, it was nice while it lasted), and of course that means that quite a few of us (myself included) are now spending way too much time on YouTube checking out begleri videos. Today’s digging yielded this gem from long-time skill collector Cizrek with some homemade begleri that look super fun! So check out some great tricks, and if you’re so inspired you can click here for instructions on how to make your own or click here to pick up a really nice pre-made set from the folks at Monkeyfinger.
Monkeyfinger Design is releasing a new set of begleri beads, and they’ve really outdone themselves with this new design.
The initial idea for Monkeyfinger Kokonutz begleri was to put as much mass as possible low on the bead. This gives the bead a lower center of gravity making it feel heavier on the cords, even though the beads are relatively light. This improves control and tracking through faster combos and makes speedy transitions a breeze!
Kokonutz are also the first Monkeyfinger begleri to come with accessories! You can add on their signature compatible o-rings, Bumperz, to give your begleri a little extra protection and some added grip in play.
They also created Monkey Bars, which are weighted beads you can add to your Kokonutz setup for additional weight in play. Monkey Bars are sold separately for $7/pair.
Available for $40/set, Friday March 10th at 8 pm EST at YoYoExpert.com. Each set comes with:
• 1 set of KoKonutz begleri beads
• 3 color matched Monkey Cords
• Info card about begleri and how to get started.
• 1 set of Bumperz
• 4 stickers
In the last year or so, there has been a surge of interest in a skill toy called Begleri in the last year. Begleri consists of one or more beads at either end of a short string or fine chain. The toy can be flipped and twirled around the fingers to perform tricks. MonkeyfingeR was definitely where I first saw it. Now they are starting up their own Begleri team. Interested in joining up with them? Well head over to their website and hit them up by emailing them a short 30 second clip and a brief “Who am I” video.
Hey gang its time MonkeyfingeR Expanded our Minions Begleri Team. If you think you have the flipping chops to join us. Drop us a 30-second vid and tell us about yourself in an email. Head on over to mfdyoyo.com Video quality counts! Good luck!
