The best Chop Cup I have is the one I still use to this day... an Ickle Pickle aluminum chop cup. Now, I have RNT2 Don Alan and it is a beauty, but heavy as all get out, stainless steel outside, copper inside! Is it sturdy? yep! And in the right hands I suppose it could be a real worker... That Ickle Pickle cup is light and easy to handle. It is hard enough to withstand the Don Alan type abuse if you perform that way and can produce a softball as the final load. Its a bad to bone cup! And it isn't all that expensive either.

Mister Bill, that Chop Cup you are describing is the Anniversary edition of the Don Alan Chop Cup and not made anymore. It's a collector's item. I like a Don Alan aluminum cup: lightweight and less expensive to replace if lost or damaged. Aluminum is so underrated.

About that RNT2 cup: you are correct. I like it but I don't perform with it. It is a really nice piece, though, very well made and precision.

I have a COA that says the Don Alan Anniversary cup I own is number 1 in the run.
I am strangely proud of that.

It is a superb cup and a real "worker".
