I’ve just treated myself to a mini chop cup.

What are people’s favourite final load for a mini? (Don Allen mini in aluminium for those who are kind enough to wonder)

I like it
I like Michael Amars Incongruous load so I don’t just want to use a bigger magicians ball
Any more?
What about something that’s not a ball?

A strawberry? A flower? A walnut or an acorn? A wrapped piece of candy or bubble gum? A glass eye? A small rock or crystal? A toy skull or spider? A toy soldier or figurine? A pawn or a knight from a chess set? A pair of dice? A stack of coins? A gaudy piece of costume jewelry? A fake giant diamond or other gemstone? A small doorknob? A fake plastic ice cube? A votive candle? A badge? A bullet? A thimble? Doll house furniture? Travel-sized sundries (a small bottle of mouthwash, shampoo or toothpaste, or lip balm)? A vial of perfume, or holy water? A Matchbox or Hot Wheels car (loaded in vertically, dropping to horizontal upon reveal when cup is lifted)? A wind-up mouse or small toy robot that starts running around as soon as the cup is lifted?

Look around you. See what fits.

When I first started doing table magic for a living, I noticed that the salt and pepper shakers used bt the restaurant where I worked fit perfectly into my chop cup. They made a great final load.

Some people use mouth coils.

I like Fakini golf balls, because they don't talk when you load them into a mini Don Alan chop cup.

Have you ever considered ordering the items you want directly from the manufacturer?

Just sayin'.

As an aside - I only really do Cups and Balls and some coin magic. I've been trying for over a year to get a decent Morgan shell, soft. The wait and postage from Mr Lassen is off putting. eBay never has just a shell and rarely has a set. I've seen one set from Mr Schoolcraft in over a year.
I'm guessing they appear in the For Sale section here, and here is my point, I can't access it because I've only made 9 posts. The 50 post rule appears a bit arbitrary. Sure, I could make another 41 single word posts, but that's ridiculous. I read a few sections, but don't have the knowledge or experience to make many comments. It might be 10 years before I make 50 posts. Just saying...
