Anybody else use this one? I'm curious if anyone has altered the handling any and if so what changes did you make?

I used it, as is, one evening at a restaurant/bar situation and it went over pretty well.

I used it as described. Seemed good to me.

I use it all the time. I use it the same way too but I produce a lemon at the end.

Brad, I like the idea of producing a lemon at the end, do you then use the lemon for bill in lemon? Or is it just for this effect? Smile

I didn't think that the jigger was quite big enough for a lemon, I will definitely have to try that one!
Thanks

Ya bill in lemon, or just the lemon, your choice.

If I am not doing bill to lemon I use fab fruit.

A lemon does not fit inside the jigger. Smile

But it does seem to come out from it. Smile

Does anyone else use the jigger to do other things?

I have been trying to use it in other ways, like I do jiggernaut, then put it aside for the moment. I then do some coin stuff then vanish the coins and make them reappear under the jigger. Or a sponge ball, I think the jigger has a lot of cool stuff you can use it for.

I want to get a jigger made that the inside of the jigger is solid, kind of like the okito box that is solid. At the end the jigger is solid and you can have a good laugh.

I went to a antique mall, and found a bigger jigger than the one jiggernaut uses. So now I can use a little bigger things under the jigger for the finals.

I do the olive things, then produce the corks, then a lemon, then another lemon, they make a free choice of with lemon they want to use then cut it open to find their bill.

Brad

Lets see what we can come up with for this trick?

I worked out some ideas using an Egg Cup that works well... I also found three LARGER old Jiggers at a garage sale but haven't worked out anything with them as yet.

I designed a gimmick to fit inside the Jigger to produce liquid at the end. And, if you produce a shot glass in the middle of the routine then it is a rounded routine. Good luck. Smile

I bought it to mix Vodka for my drinks, just kidding. I'm only 17 Smile
Anyway, I just use it with the storyline given because I believe it gives a good reason for the objects used.
The idea of the lemon or something else too big to fit inside is a good idea.

Use it all the time in the restaurant. I do the routine as taught, just adjusted the patter to fit my personality.

It is a great routine, one of my all time favorites. Smile

It is a FANTASTIC EFFECT!!!!!

I love my jiggernaut, the only thing I have added is a 3rd cork, that slightly is larger than the jiggernaut so it sticks inside it, then I place the jigger on top of the other 2 corks and tap it, the third fals and you have a nice pyramid sort of thing which is taller than the jigger itself.

The stacking of the corks adds to their size by making them seem so tall and big compared to the jigger.

I have also been toying with producing salt, a lime, and some liquid, but haven't found any easy to reset methods....

Has anyone found a source for replacement olives?

The easiest way to replace the olives is to go to a crafts store like Michael's or JoAnne Fabrics and buy some plastic fake green grapes. They cost about $5 for a bunch. Obviously, you want to buy a bunch that has the look of an olive.

Cut a round hole in the top of the grape. Cut a piece red sponge ball and place it in the hole. Voilá instant olive complete with pimento!

You guys must have read my mind -- I recently acquired the Jenest vid that has the jiggernaut routine (I haven't mastered it yet, but I love it) & I am getting the pieces seperately, the idea for the craft store grapes is good -- in my quest to find the olive props I also found:

http://www.artificialfood.com

It has all kinds of fake fruit & food, and I see a lot of potential here for nice looking final loads, also some fairly realistic looking fake animals and holiday theme stuff as well. (BTW I'm not affiliated with this site -- I'm just passing on some info I found.)

It is a one cup and ball routine using a liquor jigger (a two ended small metal cup for measuring drink fluids) with olives and the finale is production of a cork under it.

I rate it as MEDIUM good.

Negatives: Small

Positives: Small (fits in pocket) Smile

I would recommend you ***NOT*** see it at penguin magic, you should check out Mark Jenests version -- on the miracles while you wait vid, -- MUCH cleaner looking (& more entertaining) routine IMO.

It's a cute routine and series of effects, and as Mr. Biro says, it's small enough to pack everything in a pocket at the end. Everything's examinable afterwards, too (well, not your pockets, but that's kind of a given, yes?).

My personal experience with it: I've owned a chop cup since, well, the Cetacious period, but never really managed to pull together a routine that made any sense. Jiggernaut does that, with suprisingly well-written instructions and clear photographs (and the whole thing's done on one long sheet -- the packaging for the trick -- so you can tack it up next to your mirror or tabletop while you're working on it).

A decent "uses something real" chop cup routine.

Did I feel gypped? Nope.

(Hm. Maybe we should make that a standard in reviews. The "Did I Feel Gypped?" rating?)

I have been using the James Riser/Dennis Loomis Micro Chop Cup with the Dennis Loomis routine. It comes with all the necessary props and balls, including the final loads. It also can have a bar theme with the vanish of a cup of liquid (drink) at the end, although I do it without the cup/liquid vanish. Also one of the two cups you receive looks like a small travel shot "glass". It packs small and all of the magic is done in the hands. I also have Jiggernaut but prefer the Micro Chop Cup. (I do not know Loomis, Riser or the company that makes the cups.)
