Is there a particular set of cups you guys would recommend? What about best cups for the price? Are there cups that you would suggest that work good with sponge balls?

Greg.... as to cups and sponge ball use, there are no better than the johnny Paul Cups available at RNT2...

Best Cups for the price is a judgement call; consider what type of routine you are going to do, final loads and what size Cups you can manage. Here is a search link to get you started...

Good luck,

Copper Bazar de Magia I think is the best for the money. There is a set for sale (you can not access yet the section until you have 50 post)
but the member that sell them is Abbascups. I bought from him before with no trouble at all, you can ask him for price and pictures

I would recommend buying all you can afford. There's a big difference between a $50 set and a $200 set. If you spend the money now, you'll save yourself years of grief buying multiple cheap sets trying to find something that works.

I agree with DAve. Get the best you can afford if you are serious.

Keep an eye on the items for sale forum here on the Café. I have a lovely set of RnT2 Foxy 2.5 copper cups that I got for a steal.

Motley - I will do that as soon as I get to my 50 posts requirement. With all the questions I have had I'm not to much farther away.

NOBODY can tell you which set of cups you should get. You need to handle several different sets and see which ones fit your hands and your loads the best.

The Bazar cups won't work for your purposes, because they won't accept a tennis ball. Neither will the Johnny Paul cups. Sherwoods will work, as will the PFD cups. For me, considering what you have stated, I would use a set of Gazzo cups or a set of Van Dokkum Jumbos. But I would also recommend that you try them out before you buy them.

Hi Greg,
I use the Aluminium Mendoza Combo cups from Rnt2. Sure they are light, but affordable. I like them. They take a tennis ball.

These zenneth set is a fairly good starter set too in my opinion. China made.

More sage advice from Mr. Palmer. He's right as usual. Cups are basically an extension of your hands, so they need to fit you and your needs.

If you can, find a convention where Rings N Things is at. Donnie is awesome, and always has a sizeable inventory to explore. He will ensure you get the cups that fit your style, and meet your performance needs and expectations.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
