Ozzy I differ on the issue over Michael Ammar's DVDs, I think there is a ton of great sleights, and misdirection tips here that apply to any small ball and cup routine. The DVD by itself wont teach you the chop cup but is a great foundadtion for small ball magic in general.
One source that has good coverage from very simple routines to more complicated routines is a book Mark Wilson published on the Chop Cup some years ago. Although difficult to find it is worth the effort. The routines very from a basic routine to an interesting routine using a non-chop cup and a sponge ball variation.

Cheers guys, I have found a rather cheap chop cup but before I go and buy it I have been practicing with only sleight of hand it is quite a fun routine I like the fact that it brings out the more performance side of magic rather than the actual trick although the trick plays an important role.

I used the simple aluminium cup and rather cheap one from Morrissey Magic for years and I am absolutely satisfied. If you can test the cup at your local dealer, check if your chosen cup works well together with the chosen ball.

I like Paul Daniels version. Or it could be the timing of his humor that makes me watch it over and over.

WGM- Chop Cup may be the best for you to browse many Chop cup routines. But actually I love Paul Daniel's routine best. It maynot be the most fool(sorry that I don't know which word to describe this kind of things, LOL,sorry),but it must be the most entertaining one~

Paul Daniels' routine is basically the Ken Brooke routine, but Paul's presentation and his personality make it outstanding.

I was inspired by this Don Alan YouTube video that I went to RNT-2 and ordered a set of balls. Now all I gotta do is come up with the words for this routine, my biggest challenge.

Already have a number of balls in my collection, but wanted something new that I saw on RNT-2 and ordered it. Right now I am looking at a final load ball on my shelf that I brought from James Tong, a very decorative ball.

Where are you James Tong?

The best and most thorough source which I have come across for learning the chop cup is on one of the Brad Burt DVDs. Here's the link:

Adam's answer is the best. Learn Don Alan's routine. Get the DVD with Don actually doing it. Get Ron Bauer's book. After you have learned Don's routine, learn Paul Daniels' routine, if you feel that it is necessary. Don's is much easier to do.

When you have 50 posts, check out the material in the Secret Sessions concerning how to do final loads.


So now I have Don Alan's book, and on my way to 50 posts!

The first chop cup I had was a cheap brushed aluminum one from Tannen's. I couldn't use it. It made my fingers cringe trying to hold it. (I also got annoyed that they sold me the regular red balls, but wanted to sell me an extra large yellow ball for the climax. I'm sorry, the ball can expand, or change color but in my opinion, it shouldn't do both at once.)

I used to have a mini-chop goblet that I got from The Trickery. I loved and used it a lot. It was in my backpack when I accidently left it behind and it got stolen. The Trickery doesn't seem to exist anymore and no one else is selling that particular model.

I'm planning on getting a new one soon.
