Does anyone have information about these Cups?

Are these the half dollar sized cups? Have you tried Jim Riser directly? They are on his site for $130

Yes, thank you. I perused the site before posting and must have overlooked the info.

I have since reached out to Jim Riser and am on a hold list should he make another run of these charming little guys.

They are an interesting design. I like the idea of smaller cups, in fact my favorite set are mini PF's. If you ever get them, take some pics and let us know how you like them?

Yes, certainly.

Where can we see a good image of the mini PF's?

My favorite mini Cups are Bill Palmer's Cups and Balls Museum Commemorative Cups. I have three sets!

I wish he's make another run, but wouldn't that go against his "only 50 will be produced" statement?

My favourite mini cups are the RNT II stainless steel mini PF cups and the Riser "Innocent" minis. My favourite MICRO cups are the stainless steel micro cups by Auke van Dokkum.

Thank you…I am a regular customer of Donnie’s and should have known about this!

Sorry about the laziness and thanks again.

Anyone have a link to a vid of a nice routine with tiny or micro cups?

I have a set of the Riser mini's...but these seem to take the small to a whole new level.

Just for interest, here is a comparison in sizes of some of Jinm Riser's cups:

Is it just me or do the micro cups (and maybe even the tiny ones) seem like a pointless exercise in design. certainly unusable for a cups routine more in depth than a basic ball hiding.

Jim Riser offered these Sterling Silver micro cups for sale, the pictures are no longer in his website. They are most likely sold out as he is limiting the production to only 7 sets:

Matryoshka: the climax of David Regal's routine is the production of the "toy" magic set cups. One could make production of the tiny cups the climax of a phase in which successively smaller sets of cups are discovered under the cups in use.

(The Matryoshka dolls are the nesting Russian wooden dolls created at the end of the XIXth century and subsequently popularized.)
