I just bought a used set of Gazzo cups. They are unbelievable.

They look just like huge Paul Fox Cups but HUGE!

I had a hard time finding stuff in my house that wouldn't fit inside.

No picture I've ever seen of them did these babies justice.

I'm thrilled.

Those are great cups. The I.D. of the Gazzo Cups is close to the same as the Paul Fox chick cups. The Gazzo cups are about 1/2 inch shorter, but the upper shoulder bead is higher, and the bottom is a bit larger, so you have a lot more attic space in the Gazzo cups than in the Paul Fox cups.

It is hard to beat a street cup that is actually designed and used by a real live street performer.

Now, hit the bricks!!!!

I have relatively large hands, and can palm a basketball with either hand... but I have to really hold on to my Gazzos as they are Big and heavy and slippier than a basketball.

The day that I got them, I took them with me to a magic club meeting to show them off, and was doing the cup thru cup with them and due to their size, I think it was even more amazing to the group. But I guess that I was most amazed that I could do that move with them without ever practicing it with them. But the sheer weight of them makes the move work easier than with any of my other cups.

I am now busy rounding up all sorts of unlikely loads to use with them, rubber squeek toys, etc. that look even bigger than the cups - which really are VERY BIG!

These are one of the best magic investments that I have made yet.

After trial and error, I found that my George Forman Grill will not fit under the cups and neither will my automobile.

Oranges, Apples, the toaster... all that stuff fits.

So, I think I'm going to produce toasters as a final load.

What do you guys use?

Frank,

What kind of auto do you drive? My 2003 Dodge Neon won't fit under the cups, but it does make a great hatload.

Fellows! Quit complimenting Bloor. It's making his head swell!

Seriously, take one of your cups to the Dollar Store and start loading balls into it. There is a big chain called "Dollar Tree" that has all sorts of bargains on toy balls.

These splash bombs are good loads also. They come in many sizes and are quite colorful.

Ha!
Not to worry Palmer. No matter how big you may make my head, it'll still fit under a Gazzo cup!

I don't try to load the George Forman Grill, but I do have a set of cups that George will fit under.

No Palmer, they are not for sale. Smile

One set of HUGE cups is enough for ANYONE!

But if you are ever interested in selling them ....

I was over at Bill Palmer's place a couple of nights ago and got to play with those cups of his. Those Gazzo cups are really great!
