Spotted this on the Hocus Pocus site and found this video below:

Anyone seen one of these close up yet?

Just wondering if the cup can be examined by the spectator at the start of the routine?

Neat! I thought it was a specific kind of chop cup I'd seen before until that last bit where he showed the cup empty. That's a new one on me. Must be an entirely different principle at work -- or maybe the old principle plus something new. I also like the concept of using dice and a dice shaker.

Why would anyone pass a chop cup out for examination?

For that matter, does anyone hand out their cups and balls for examination even though they are examinable?

I guess Gazzo does in his street act.

I pretty much always hand out my chop cup for examination. They haven't seen a cup or a ball like the ones typically used and I want them to know they are free of guile. Once they know the ball and cup are not gimmicked then I ring in the gimmicked ball.

I stick with Just a Cup by Axel Hecklau... http://youtu.be/STtlVt9utiI
And I always hand out my Cup after and sometimes befor the routine!

Yes, I'm the same as Paul.

You need to eliminate them thinking it's a sticky ball at the start of the routine. And so yes I do hand the cup and ball out at the start of the routine.

If you don't they will just assume that a sticky ball is the method and although wrong, in their minds they have sussed what you are doing.

Still too much if you ask me. Unless there's an elf in there.

I am an avid chop cup performer and collector. This definitely appears to have some unique and interesting features. I'm reminded of the mirror gimmick used in a production box. I just placed an order for one through Penguin Magic and will write a full review upon receipt.

Hmm,

Just wonder whether Chop Cup is the right description for this. Very obviously there must be some kind of hidden compartment at work and I'd always thought chop cups implied m*****s.

And the action of putting the ball in the cup looks a lot more deliberate and careful than I have to do with a chop cup so not hugely sold on this.

Thank you sir. I believe it is a combination of the classic chop cup combined with an additional aforementioned gimmick/principle at work here but won't know for sure until I receive it. Although I find the enhancement unnecessary and the classic chop cup an effect that requires no improvements, it is always nice to take full advantage of a luxury that removes all doubt as opposed to relying on psychologically subtle convincing Smile It is tantamount to comparing a Ramsey sublety to a completely open hand Smile

Look forward to your review. I agree with your view so it will be great to see, after a bit of playing about with this cup, whether it brings anything extra to the table.

Thanks
