Jim's comments are true. All I am saying is that a combo set is a good substitute if you don't WANT to do the false transfers.


I've been eyeing the RNTII JM Combo set for a while. I did a lecture/demo on Cups and Balls for our IBM Ring last night. Someone there thought I might be using a combo set and made it a point to switch cups around while I was retrieving the third cup from an audience member. It made me glad I was using a standard set. One less thing I have to keep track of.

Dave V. did a FANTASTIC Demonstration/lecture on the cups and balls at the Las Vegas IBM club meeting last night. He's studied with the absolute best in the world and it shows. If you ever have an opportunity to watch Dave do the cups and balls, don't miss it. Thanks for your time and efforts, Dave! It got me excited to break out the cups and balls and get back to work on a classic that has unfortunately been pushed to the back of my "bag-o-tricks".

During a conversation with Jake, he mentioned that he had done a set of cups that were all chopped. Does anyone have a routine that uses all chop cups?

Just curious, there must be many possibilities.

I have a clever bit with all three cups 'choppers' -- Use ungaffed balls throughout, then near the end of routine do multiplication pass sequence to pockets and switch for 'the balls that....' and you can stop and lift all cups to show empty and set 'em down smartly... then lift and reveal all three balls have come back. It's up to you to work out the timing and sequence to fit your routine. Smile

And this coming from the guy who tried to trip me up. Smile Thanks Al. Really, thanks. I never would have even attempted it if it wasn't for you pushing me into doing it.
