Congratulations Jake on getting those endorsed by John Mendoza. They look like great cups!

I am waiting on mine as well, I am sure they will be great.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

I just checked RNT2's website. They are now called "SBL John Mendoza Copper."

When they were first released, they were called "JM2 Cups." The JM stood for John Mendoza.

I just recieved my first real set of quality cups from RNT2 today. I am a hobbyist and have only a basic routine. The Sisti Pro in nickle chrome, and the JM chop cup in copper have entered my reality today, and my hobby has now taken a serious turn. I love these cups. The Sisti's are so beautiful I can't believe how I ever got by with the Uday's. But the JM chop cup is so amazingly impressive I had to get the whole enchilada. Thanks to Jake, the combo set will be complete. I now need to find the best education for combo set routines. I have been practicing with the WGM chop cup and Eddy Ray's DVD's. Any advice on where to study next?

I took your advice on the Ammar instructionals, got the dvd's easily, but the book was REALLY hard to find, but I managed to find one at Morrissey Magic. a bit pricey, but if it is as good as the other Ammar items I have, I know it is gonna be good.

Ammar is the man. I'm working on his Cups and Balls DVD's now (haven't got the book yet). I used to collect cups and never could do anything with them. Now I've only got a few sets and I'm actually using them.

By the way DJ I thought you did a great job at the meeting last month.

I too have the Ammar Cups and Balls DVD and think its wonderful. Is there a lot of information that is in the "hard to find and costly" book that is not in the DVD set?

I'm not sure what constitutes "costly." The last copies available were special edition copies with slip covers. They retailed for $79.95 or so.

The regular edition, which is out of print, cost about half that. It still shows up on eBay.

There is some material in the book that is not on the DVD.

I would get both.

Thanks Bill. I wouldn’t consider the prices you mentioned as “costly” either. I’ll have to keep an eye out for a copy. My initial fear was that, as with so many oop items on EBay, the prices can quickly grow to the ridiculous level.

I think the highest I have seen the regular edition go for on eBay is about $50, which isn't too bad.

I did pay a very high price for a copy a few months ago, but there was a reason. It was from Roger Klause's collection, and Roger needs the money for his cancer treatment.

Roger is one of my teachers, and he was kind enough to inscribe it for me.

I did not mean to imply that the Ammar Book was not a value at the 70 something range, The copy I got was a special edition version (with the cover). I have to quantify "pricey" to me is any book over 30 smakaroos. I gotta really want a book to go over that. I would love to find Lorayne's book on the Himber wallet, at a price I can live with, as it too is up there on my list of must reads!

Unfortunately, with the cost of printing now, it's getting harder and harder to find magic books that retail for less than $30.

To get the price down to a reasonable level, you have to print more copies than there are magicians. Then after a couple of years, you are left with a warehouse full of material that nobody wants.

Until someone discovers what was in the book, and they want reprints.
