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. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the design relative to our other products, is the generous top bore, designed to accommodate 550 paracord.
The Modern Standard 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. While the Modern Standard series is available in a number of heavier metals that don’t really require these additional Hardcore beads, the aluminum version is light enough that most players will want to add weight.
Aluminum Modern Standard bead: 5g
Aluminum End Cap bead: 3.2g
Total weight per end: 8.2g
Optional add-on of bronze Micro Standards: 7.8g (for total weight per end of 12.8g)
