Topic: Street Chop Cup suggestion
Message: Posted by: mmreed (Jan 5, 2009 01:56PM)
Im looking for a SOLID chop cup... the ones I have are thin and just not up to being beat around. I got a RNT2 cup - one of the SBLs but its not as solid as I hoped. I going to keep that for more showy type work.

Any suggestions on where to find a solid thick walled cup in hopefully a steel, silver color, or alum look?

Hey Kozmo - your chop cup seemed like a solid chunk of metal - do you recall where you picked it up?

Mark,
If you can lay your hands on the RNT II Don Alan in stainless steel with the bronze liner, you will have a chop cup that is almost indestructible.

Frank sells Cellini chop cups from time to time. I have one & they are tanks.

The only problem (and it's a deal-breaking problem) is that the taper of the cup prevents a standard chop cup move for working balls larger than 1/2"

The cup works fine in a combo cup routine (which it was designed for)...but falls short as a stand alone chop cup IFF you require that move in your routine.

(Think: 2 balls goes in and non-chopped ball comes out...no-can-do with the Cellini cup and 7/8" balls)

I have used a Johnson for a few years and it has bounced down the street more than a few times. Still working fine and the price works. I am looking forward to Kozmo's chop cup but till then....

Van Dokkum Chicken sized chop cup is the strongest one but you will have to strengthen the wrists to use it !

Kozmo uses a Jim Riser cup but I don't know if they are still available.
A great cup though. The ickle pickle widemouth might be a nice cup. It's lightweight aluminum but seems pretty good and cheap. The other ickle pickle cup is also aluminum but not too bad.

Van Dokkum cups are tanks. Beautiful tanks.

As kondini states... Very heavy. Look what happened to him when he used one.
He's still in traction, as you can see.
