Does anyone have this set? Can you recommend/review them? Have any idea of what size final load they will hold?

I had those and sold them, they are nicer looking in the picture than in person. Probably they are very well done and the woods used are the best, however I did not like them aesthetically.

They are lighter than metal ones, and I don't recall the exact size but they were on the larger size (not a baseball but more than a tennis ball I think)


Sorry I can not give you more information

Really over-the-top design. Distracting, and look nothing like cups of any sort. Paul Lembo's work is usually stellar, but I think he missed the mark with these cups.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

They look different but I'm not sure if they will hold up very long once you start using them.

Exactly what you don't want. cups with a wildly different color for the mid-section "collar". They just look to tricked out.

I think the Michelin Man was the inspiration for these cups:

If you had just one for a chop cup type routine it would look terribly suspicious, not an organic - found prop. As a set of three you are around the bend. It would take the entire routine to establish to the spectator that these could be used as cups at all. They look more like satellites or medical devices than a place to hide a ball or two.

A victory for the woodworker, a challenge for the salesman, a disaster for the common magician.
