Through an interesting twist, I have $200 to spend at Stevens Magic Emporium, and would like a few recommendations.

I am posting here for 2 reasons:

1) Wasn't sure where to post this kind of topic

2) This topic is frequented by people whose opinions I respect

Here are some possibilites I am interested in - I don't need reviews on the ones I listed below, just additional suggestions (btw, not looking for $200 items, just items that are not over $200):

- Stainless Monti Cups
- Nemo 1500 (or was it 15000...?)
- Don Alan Chop Cups

Thanks in advance....

Nemo 1500 is awesome

Cups? It is your choice. I would stay away from the Stainless cups as they are not balanced as good as spun cups.

Chop cups on Stevens' site are all good.

I bought the Don Alan chop cup from Stevens. Needless to say, it is the best CC on the market. The m@%$#t releases just when you want it to. Some CC are either too strong or too weak. Also, Don Alan CC acts as a weapon if you need it to be one, can also hold 16oz of beer. True.
It's never to late to have a happy childhold!

Depending on your interests, shop skills, and presentational style, you might want to consider Walt Noon's Flea Circus video, book, and CD for $55. I got this two months ago and am building one now. This is a superb value. If you buy one built from Stevens, it's $2500. You can build one for a fraction of that, and you can change some of the effects around to get exactly what you want. I may be able to add a knife thrower! That's right, trained fleas throwing miniature knives!

Stevens also sells the range of Frank Radtke products. You may want to consider getting a set of Fakini multiplying balls or thimbles.

Since I actually have a set of the stainless RnT 2 Monti cups in my possession, I must say that the balance of these cups is the same as the balance of any other set of Monti cups.

Balance was never a problem with the original Bells of St. Mary cups, which were steel. Basically, the stainless cups feel fine to me.
