Is there a cups & balls routine that uses clear cups? I seem to remember seeing this on the Café before, but I can't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are several. There is Jason Latimer's, which has not been published. There is a published one available from Micky Hades, as well.

My Crystal Clear Cups and Balls, from The Wizards' Journal #8 makes use of transparent colored Kiddie cups that have an interesting deceptive optical property. They are available in most supermarkets in the USA.

Credit for first devising a method for doing the Cups and Balls trick with transparent cups goes to Ronald J. Dayton (Transparent Chop Cup) and Jeffrey L. Campbell. Their work is described in the book "Jeffrey L. Campbell's Crystal Cups," published by Micky Hades (1983).

There is also the George Blake routine and the one on VHS I did in Magic from France (Greater Magic Video Series by Joe Stevens) which involves a regular cup, a cristal clear (regular) glass and balls of three different colors

It all goes back to Al Goshman, doesn't it?

No George Blake pre dates Al Goshman and, to my knowledge, Albert didn't have a C&Bs routine or even a C&Bs move with a crystal clear glass, but only a (very smart) coin under glass move.
Albert's phenomenal salt shakers routine could be considered as a C&Bs routine in the sense of Scott's discovery of witchcraft, but they cannot be classified as "crystal clear" C&Bs.

Same here. They are the lowest of the low on my list, not because of the cups routine, tho....

But if you had put together a clear cups routine prior to the P & T expose', that would definitely be one reason!

If there is a source for ordering this exact routine, other than Jason Latimer, himself, it is without his authorization.

Which routine are you talking about?

If it's Jason's, Bill's statement is spot on.

That's unfortunate...they're very interested in keeping current on you.
