Have one of the fantastic versions from The Ambitious Card. Its a beautifull thing and I cant think why you would not want one when doing this routine.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

You could make your own out of paper and duct tape and buy some large super balls...

You could spend a fair bit on leather and the tools to work with it...

But if you want to buy good quality props, you are probably going to be supporting a craftsman who charges a fair price for his work. That's true whether you buy from Frank or someone else.

How much do you get paid for a show?

Now that George Millward is out of business, no one else making leather cones that I know of currently.

They make cardboard cones at craft stores and on line. I have purchased several on line. They come in various sizes and you can easily cut them down however you wish. Balls are equally hard to find, unless you buy 2 sets of 2" billiard balls. George used real billiard balls, and I found you can get the cue ball easily at places like Wal-Mart, but other colors with no numbers on them are not as easy to find.

I believe RnT2 sells individual pool balls as final loads.
Reality is a real killjoy.

Snooker balls are 2 1/16" and no numbers.
