Jim Riser has release, IMHO, one fantastic set of chop cups. Check my review. The cups are being featured at Jim's site.

You should see the work involved in the making of these cups on this page.

I own both versions and am very happy with them. With Jim's new cups and RNTII Don Alan back, the magic community finally has quality chop cups available.

The Riser Cups look like, essentially, the old Al Wheatley "Master" Cup? That later was modified to the Chop Cup, Jr. which looks like Jim's "Shorty." The latter is the one that was really popularized by Don Alan.

Guys,

I saw these cup and they are beautiful. Is the copper cup sealed with any coating or will it show patina?

Thanks,
Rich

Jim Riser doesn't use any coating on his cups, including the Riser Shorty, so it will develop a patina in time.

I have the platform style cup. I can honestly say it is the finest chop cup I have ever owned. I love the feel and look of the thing. Jim designed it so the final load of the baseball will stay inside so a short "sleight of hand only" segment can be performed. This feature alows a wonderful time misdirection for the final load revelation.
As with all of Jim's props, the workmanship stands alone.

Glenn;
One of your messages got through! I do not know what the problem was. Spam seems to come through just fine! I've emailed you.

To the rest of you above who have posted, thank you for the kind words. I do try to produce quality/useable products for serious magic workers.

Hiya, Jim:

Not only are your products extremely high-calibre (I've got your Mini Chop Cup), but your Web site is a lot of fun, too. It is incredible to watch the steps that turn raw stock into fine props!

I received the copper Riser shorty with the extra shot glass and it is a terific and finely made chop cup. I highly recommend it.

I know this is an old thread but I couldn't help remembering when these were released. I owned both the Traditional-style and the Innocent-style but sold them both due to the useless, off-set magnet which I've never been able to use with my routine. I did; however, buy 4 Riser Shorty, Jr. Midi-sized chop cups with centered-gaffs several years ago and still cherish them all today. Two T-60 heavy-gauge aluminum cups in the Traditional-style, 1 copper in the Traditional-style and 1 copper in the Innocent-style. They are slightly smaller than a standard-sized cup yet still big enough to be seen.
