Anyone have this unique Chop Cup set and care to comment on it -- good, bad, interesting?

Thanks!

Jerry,

Edouard has taken the original routine of William Zavis and added some very nice additional moves and displays.

The Zavis routine is in his book, 'Diverse Deceipts' and I also have it on an old Videonics VHS tape, I think volume 4.

Thanks very much!

If anyone owns a Presti Cup and cares to comment further, that's great too.

I love this cup, and all the other bits and bobs that come with it. To be honest the cup could be a bit better, it is leather and looks great but the actual construction looks a bit rushed. This doesn't impact the success of the trick or the audience enjoyment and most folks wouldn't even notice. Also you can use another cup if you wanted to. The wand is top notch, the balls are a clever concept and work well for the trick.

I love the routine because it's a series of vanishes, appearances and penetrations. This routine doesn't use the old "is it in my pocket or under the cup" premise. Neither the ball or your hand go to your pocket, which I think makes this a very convincing routine. And to top it all off, it's not complex slight of hand.

One slight issue in today's climate is that the routine is structured in such a way that you interact closely with a volunteer. You have them touch the cup and you use their hands as a table for a few parts of the routine. So it's not covid compliant but...the in the hands aspect of the routine is very cool, makes for an engaging and interactive version of the cups and balls and fries the people I have been able to perform this for. For now I'm simplifying the routine and leaving out the interactive parts but as soon as it's safe to add them back in I will because they are very strong.

I know everyone is different and has varied taste but in my opinion this is a great trick I look forward to performing for years to come.

Thank you, Bill! (I was concerned that the cup doesn't look very good, although I love the routine and method.)

Jerdunn: I've been thinking about making a leather cup..but in all likely hood I'll just keep my eye out for a suitable one to purchase. That said the cup the comes with the trick will work great and won't leave you looking like a down at the heal magician.

TCC Presents should have their's ready for retail by next month. Great cup, comes with two balls and they have load balls at an extra cost.
Most likely Murphy's Magic is going to be releasing it. It's a very well made cup.
