Eeepp I hope your luck turns around jake, I hate when those things happen. I hope these private ventures are as fun as they sound.

And the ramsey cups are excellent thank you so much, and sorry again for so many delays, I am glad I was able to get them thanks to your kindness.

I can only imagine what Jake will create once he has a bit more time from the daily mundane stuff that is all part of running a successful biz. Ya gotta know that with that "Z" blood running through the veins of Jake's daughter there will continue to be magical art created at RNTII!
Jake man, congrats on your retirement and as always I look forward to any future conversations and seeing what you're up too in the times ahead!
Cheers Brother,
Mick

I hope Jake's got a few new products to surprise us with before he hangs up his spinning tools.
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

I second the magnificent, and wanted to add why. When I first got these, I was excited about the size. Upon playing with them I notices that the top was not as convex as most cups and was a little disappointed. In practicing with them I found that sure enough some of the moves I was already doing would now cause the ball to roll off the table and to the floor, so now I had confirmed my disappointment (KEEP READING). So I called a friend who knows Jake and know cups and he explained that it was for sake of allowing for a larger load. So, now I was ready to put this in front of a lay audience. First off it didn't take long to correct the ball falling off the cup, it just took a lighter touch. Also I honestly didn't think that it would make such a huge difference having bigger loads, BOY WAS I WRONG. I honestly didn't think that my cup routine was going to get any better, but now the reaction is beyond a noticable difference, I would put it at 10x the reaction I get with my pheonix cups. Also my orginal plan was to keep these for sake of stage or parlour shows and use my pheonix for close up. I decided to try these close up and it worked even better, I know the ladies will agree with me on this one, men just try it for yourself, BIGGER IS BETTER, and Jake has done it. In my close up sets its gone for people who were really into the magic saying that I was amazing to even jaded people who at frist don't seem interested, stammering out "yer, amazing, you are amazing!" I can't say it enough these are magnificent!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks Jake for making the end of my year a great one!

This is old hat. But yesterday I received my RNT ( Regular} Monti Cups (copper-satin finish) complete with four 3/4-inch and also four 1-inch red balls.Rather surprisingly, three one-inch balls would just fit on the saddle. Does anyone use these cups this way.

Yes. It is a very common move. It goes back to Hocus Pocus Jr. (1634)

Jake, will the SBL line & Pete's Ramsay cups be discontinued after the 1st?

If so I need to scramble some cash together...

Remember Riser's Law. If you want it, get it today, it may not be available tomorrow.

And remember Palmer's Law. Everything shows up on eBay sooner or later.

Ever wonder what the SBL stands for. I asked Jake a couple times and he told me it would soon be let out. Still haven't heard.
