Hi.

I just bought some plastic cherries from Ebay to use as the balls for the Cups and Balls. They look really nice, but are VERY light and could handle better.

Does anyone know where I can get some more heavy plastic cherries (or grapes) that are more heavy and handles better?

Thanks

Take a sharp pencil or drill a small hole in the bottom of each, insert about 3-6 BB's or a small fishing weight and seal shut with hot glue... that might help.

With the BB's you've also just shimmed your cherries (that sounds filthy somehow) for chop cup/PK.

Expanding foam insulation may work without overweighting the cherries. Should give you a silent load.Just make sure you don't overfill them!
