Just to uptade this so people can find information:

-SBMagik sells spare balls for 30 or 35 dolars. One normal and one shimmed.

I wrote here a brief review about the appearing pool cue, that I will produce after the final loads: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/searc......=4998592

I have the dice cup and it totally ROCKS!!!

Beautifully crafted and a dinger of a routine to boot.

This sets THE standard!

The dice cup is a bit knacky in terms of getting the dice to stick every single time.

To get the die to adhere consistantly, try shaking the cup up and down in rapid succession. This works well for me.

I wish to extend my public thanks to S.B. for producing the Pool Chop Cup! I won third place out of 15 in a magic competition this past weekend by using it.

Can anyone light me up where I can still find this nice pool chop cup? Many thanks!

I have owned the Pool Chop Cup and the Dice Chop Cup. The Pool Chop Cup did not hold the gaffed ball very well. You had to find the sweet spot which made it challenging to perform smoothly. I also did not think the cup looked like a pool table pocket. It looked like a pencil holder with green felt in it. Just did not work for me. Balls were nicely hand painted but noisy to load. Pool cue was great. A bit cumbersome to carry. Was able to ebay it for what I paid for it a year later so the set retains value.

The Dice Chop Cup has similar sweet spot issues -- wish these guys would use better gaffs. I do like the set, especially the rolled up bills for the final climax. Can't stack in the cup though.

Want the Tennis Chop Cup but not sure it is for me -- just want it!

I may be biased as Stephane is a friend, but I love his chop cups. The mini tennis balls, ending with a real tennis ball as a final load, is reminiscent of Mike Rogers' mini baseballs. They look fantastic and people love them. Personally though, my preference is his dice cup routine. The props are great, and his routine is very strong.

I've had these for a week now and will give you guys an honest review:

The Pool Chop Cup
Retail: $124.95

This is the most elegant set in the series which should probably be obvious after comparing costs. The chop cup is a pool pocket composed of a metal frame which houses a velvet lined bag pocket. The pool cue, the working balls and the final load balls are all hand painted and beautifully crafted in wood. Due to the hardness of the wooden balls you will have to perform this on a close-up pad. This set is arguably too elegant to perform with.

The Dice Chop Cup
Retail: $79.95

This one is priced somewhere in the middle relatively speaking. The dice cup itself resembles an ordinary although comparitively flimsy dice cup to what I am accustomed to considering I am also a dice stacker. Although this cup is perfectly adequate for performing a chop cup routine with, I strongly discourage any dice stacking as I don't believe it would hold up very long. I also recognize that it was never advertised as such. The nicest part of this set are the chopped dice which is probably this cup's saving grace. Due to the hardness of the dice you will have to perform this on a close-up pad. If you want one made to withstand stacking as well consider http://www.theambitiouscard.com/ Overall, this one works and is practical.

The Tennis Ball Chop Cup
Retail: $39.95

I must admit that this one is cute but is nothing more than an ordinary tin can gaffed with a tab of velvet which conceals the gimmick and is probably held in place by glue. I probably would have bashed it some, if it weren't for the fact that the chopped mini tennis balls weren't so *** nice. Overall it works and is practical.


Pool chop cup was recently on Ebay for sale. I passed it up. Thanks for the reviews.

Are all these for sale? Any fruit chop cups from Stephane?

I have yet to see these for sale in a long time. I use to own it and I would say it is great! May be able to find it from time to time.

One of the best chop cups I know is the master chop cup by Tim Star.

Besides being beautiful it is also a technical marvel
