The long awaited Micro Hydras feel legitimately worthy of consideration as a stand alone set of begleri. The appeal of a classy ultra-portable set is hard to deny, and the Micro Hydras fit the bill perfectly. The set includes four small beads, each one measuring just 12mm in diameter and 6mm in height. The beads are bored out to accommodate 550 paracord easily, and with the addition of a nice double overhand knot or button/ celtic knot at the end, these sets look very sharp. The beads themselves weigh in at around 4.8g each, for a total weight of 19.2g for the four of them. Add in your paracord, and the set weight bumps to just over 20g.
