I've been using a don alan mini for a while and it works perfectly. You get the normal chop cup routine but it can be done in the hands. A lime will just fit, as will a chocolate egg which is a nice give away. I juat dinked mine and actually think I may go for a micro cup. I know a lime wont fit but a bouncy ball will, and a lime could drop out with a fake drop

Here is what I use. Cup holder was made by high caliber holsters. The final loads are simple ball holders from penguin magic they go on my back under my jacket. No one sees them and more importantly no pocket space is used.

Take a look at the "Anytime, Anywhere Cups & Balls" DVD teaser trailer by Brian Watson. He has a great solution that I'm thinking of adopting.

I'm late to the party, but thank you Alan!

I've used a ball clip just under the edge my sport jacket, classic holder on safety pin. Its also called a billiard ball holder, egg holder, etc.
I also still wear a double breasted suit so there is a bit more room in the jacket,
I use the mini chop cup routine and the open palm of the spectator for the first phase then I have them hold my wallet as the table for the finish...smooth transition into card in wallet finale.

I used to use Jiggernaut by Mark Jennest for table hopping. Jigger, olives and corks for the final load all fit in my left jacket pocket with no noticeable bulge.

I just use the side pockets of my suit jacket, whilst I don't use a mini cup etc the cup I use isn't massive. Also I mainly use this in corporate settings so I'm only performing 3 routines on average at the tables so pocket space isn't really an issue at these type of events.

In my restaurant work over the last 30 years I stopped wearing jackets ( I just got too warm ) ditched the coat and one night picked up a waiter apron ( with the restaurant logo) and worked out of it with great success. I upgraded to a nice leather gibriecie and have used it ever since. Holds a lot of loads and a great servante. No one ever suspects or comments on the look. I just mention this is where I keep my stuff. This also enables me to carry extra props for the dining regulars who I always try to have something new. Note: I do not wear this at formal or business venues.
check out for the best in close up pads and tables.

As you might see in the trailer, you can carry it around in a little bag which is attached to the belt. I use a lime as my final load. It's small enough to sit inside my outer jacket pocket.
