I was wondering what cups this guy is using. Maybe Bill or Pete or Mad Jake can tell me.

You will find him at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sCnHfak_......;search=

He is busking in Toronto in 2004.

I like his routine, sort of a cross between Vernon's and Gazzo's I think.

I thought they might be Gary Animal's work.

What did you think of the routine?

I liked it and thought he did it very well.

They seem a bit smaller than GAzzo cups. I'll bet they are animal cups.
They seem bigger than the Babes too.

I vote for Animals as well. The ones in Bill's museum have smaller tops, but the personal Gary Animal cups look very much like them, so I'm guessing he made more than one set with the wider tops.

Maybe Gary will recognize them if he sees this thread.

These look a lot like the cups that Gary animal made for SFS. Only in the video they seem to have flatter tops. I do know that he respun a number of cups to accept three balls on top. But I thought that was only Gazzo . The SFS cups had a different top bead. The top half of the bead was recessed to accept the rim of the nested cup. I think the teory behind this was to get a tighter stack with little or no wobbling . But one can't tell from this video if the cups are beaded that way.
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

They are my cups . I made small and large top animal cups. Infact more large than small.

I would love to get my hands on those cups too, Gary. Are they still in production?
