My copper Mendoza cups, Michael Kaminskas snakewood/maple wand, and colorful load balls look like this:

Just an added thought prompted by another thread.

The combo set has an advantage being used as a Chop Cup independently or as part of a mixed routine.

It is a place to idle the extra ball!

With a standard set you cannot show all three cups empty and both hands clean at the same time. The extra must be somewhere.
It can be removed from play on the body somewhere or - idled in the special cup for a while, perhaps from the beginning.

You never have to use the synchronous "pour, vanish, reveal" technique at all. Just as a way to "close the door" on suspicion --
to give truth to the notion, "three cups and three balls - nothing more."

Just as a point of note: While I haven't had them available in the past the MK Professional Cups will have a Combo set coming in the next few months. Head over to my site - www.mkcups.com and sign up for the newsletter to keep posted on updates.

This is exciting news. Sign up! Master Kaminskas makes the good stuff.

And he's incredibly knowledgable about the Cups and Balls.

+1 for the combo set. Some chop cup routines actually take advantage of having a matching regular cup, so it's nice to have.

I got my set from Brett Sherwood. The antique brass set looks amazing in person.
