There's a new trick out called the 'Cups & Balls Outdone'. Currently being sold by several dealers and on eBay.

Anybody got it and can tell us what it's like?

Meh, is this deceptive enough to not be completely obvious to a spectator what is going on here?

Unless I am misunderstanding what I see in the video (and I REALLY don't think I am) this is a concept I remember from a beginner's magic book many years ago (30 or 40?) using paper party cups. The angles are very, very limiting, shall we say, and the props are definitely NOT examinable. I would not suggest this to anyone performing close up...or at all, really.

Here's what you'll get:
set of FOUR cups- three black, one white
printed instructions
BONUS: FREE set of four sponge balls
BONUS: FREE video with tips and routine

Here is a link to the routine (not to hard to figure out):
