Hi all
Does someone knows if there are some restrictions in bringing set of cups and balls, chop cups etc in the hand luggage when flying

I have never had a problem; the last time I flew with a set was about 6 months ago, all my travels were within the US.
Whatever you do... don't travel with any color changing knives.

Good luck,
Bruce

When I flew out of Charlotte they took out my cups and balls and ran them through x-rays a second time. I was interviewed by one of the security people who asked me what they were...I said they were cups...she didn't like my answer...New Orleans they said "oh, a magician"...just depends. There is nothing in the rules about them and all is legal...carry your cups with pride!!

Thanks guys....
You know, I really don't want to leave the airport, get on plane without my precious cups!
Also I'm supposed to do a longer workshop, also presenting Benson Bowl and Chop Cup routines.
I really hope not to have any problems with the chop cup...

Here is an alternative I have used many times with complete success. About 3 or 4 days before your out of town event, ship a spare set of your cups, etc. to the address of the performance via FedEx ground. If you don't have a spare set, ship them via FedEx overnight. <BR> <BR>No hassles <BR>

Just don't try to take them through the airport in Atlanta.
They have no sense of humor of which we are aware...
Jeff Foxworthy is telling the truth - they have a large glass case that is filled with items that they have confiscated. I did not personally see the Coleman lantern and the weed eater, but it would not surprise me at all if they were in there as well.

I think you would have bigger issues with production items, depending upon what you plan to produce.

Now where could I get a suitcase like Newt Scamander, with the Muggle switch setting?...
