If you do the chop cup and shot glass/silk phase as part of a chop cup routine (as in the Mervyn Shute book), what do you do after the ball has penetrated the silk and glass? You then have an ungimmicked ball in view and a loaded cup. What to do with them? You can do the "ball in pocket, oh look it's back under the cup" thing, but I feel that really belongs earlier in the routine (as Don Alan does it) if at all.

Well, you have to get the ball out of the cup, somehow, so penetrating the ball through the bottom of the cup would be logical. Maybe a Charlie Miller move here would be good. But you need to get to the final loads pretty quick after that.

Check out Gary Ouellets two cup routine. He includes this phase using only one ball and one chop cup.

Also, check out the Larry Jennings routine, as he uses the shot glass and silk. It's a nice and seemingly overlooked routine.
