I keep my "street bag" near my bed so I can do some practicing in my room. Well, stepped the wrong way one night, stepped on and hopelessly dented my aluminum cups!

Smile

I did a search for "cups and balls" and found a set of wooden cups and balls from Murphy's Magic. Apparently, Murphy's Magic is only wholesale. I certainly couldn't find a retail link! Did a search on Google and found a set being sold on E-Bay. They're coming, and should be here before Christmas! Also a second set of the Vernet silver thimbles. Mine are still fine, but one is showing wear and I'd like a second set anyway.

It must have been a sickening feeling when you realized what happened.

Got a new set in the mail yesterday;

I hope that worked.

They're a little shorter than my old set. I'm not certain the final load will fit! I may have to actually buy some "Key" limes, which are smaller than the fake lime I use, and produce one of them at the end of the routine.

The final load does in fact fit in the cups, but just barely. It works best if the cup is on a soft surface. Or I just might go with "Key" limes. I don't know yet.

Kinda' like that feeling when I realized I'd left my real Paul Fox cups on a bus.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.

Small difference. My damaging my $20.00 set of cups was upsetting (mostly because my wife had bought them for me when she went to Vegas with her friends) but replaceable without TOO much heartbreak.

I think my loss was like missing a step on the stairs, yours would be like being in a jet plane that hits a downdraft and plummets a couple of hundred feet!

Both were survivable, but yours would be a lot more upsetting than mine.
