Do anyone know what kind of cups Roland Henning uses here? Roland, are you reading this? BTW, Roland Henning is one of my favorite living magicians and I have known many legendary magicians.

Looks like older morrissey cups to me, but sound like much heavier copper than they would provide. I'm sure bill will chime in in a moment and clue us in.

Since they are brass cups, Morrissey is out. Could be Bazar di Magia, but I don't think so. I think they are the ones Robbins sells as "Western Cups, large."

The shoulder's not high enough for Bazar di Magia.

The dip in the saddle is very generous - quite different from most cups. I've never handled a set of the set sold by Robbins, so couldn't say for sure. They give a decent ring, though, don't they?
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

Bill, see if you can pick up a copy of Christian Jedinat's c&b DVD while you're over there. It's excellent.

I use different cups right now. Those Copper Cups from Jedinat. The final load can be larger with those cups. But my routine is designed in such a way, that virtually no features of any cups are needed. The routine can be done with paper cups.

These are much more expensive cups than the Bazar di Magia cups you were using.

Your cups are beautiful, but your handling is more of a beauty! I'm working on developing a 2 cup routine myself, and I think I will watch that video over and over. Thank you!

That's the best way to get them!

BTW, do you get to Jedinat's often?

No not really, I just order by phone. He lives basically on the other side of the country. And travelling is really expensive around here.
