I saw recently a new chop cup by Stephane Bourgoin call Tennis chop cup.
I love the idea of doing chop cup not with a traditional copper cup, which is very comment among magician.

I would like to know from someone who use this set already.
What are the comments? And if this set is recommended?

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

The Tennis Ball Chop Cup
Retail: $39.95

I must admit that this one is cute but is nothing more than an ordinary thin plastic container with a thin aluminum rim gaffed at the base with a tab of velvet which conceals the gimmick and is probably held in place by glue. I probably would have bashed it some if it weren't for the fact that the chopped mini tennis balls weren't so **** nice. Overall it works and is practical.

I would have to say that the dice cup from they put out is the best and has the best routine, I'm farmiliar with the tennis dice and pool chop cups and I think that the routine for the dice one is the best

The dice chop cup is alright but nothing to rave over. The chopped dice on the other hand is what makes this set. Very nice.

I saw the tennis ball chop cup at Hank Lee's this weekend and quite frankly was not at all impressed. The clerks were playing with it. I pulled out one of my leather mini chop cups and showed it to them and the tennis chop was quickly forgotten.

I have it and have been playing with it a bit...I have many friends that are big tennis players, and most of my family plays so mainly bought it to perform for them.

It is ok...the challenge is that the bottom of the inside of the cup has indentations around the perimeter which can hang up the ball and prevent the ball from properly "chopping" to the raised gimmick in the center. You need to glance in and jiggle the ball a bit if it is not in the righ place...easy enough to do....but not as automatic as my other cup (Johnson) which I can drop a ball in and know 100% that it is where I want it.

The tennis balls are great...and overall, if you will be performing for people that are tennis players, certainly worth it.

I noticed that hanging up when I was at Hank Lee's. One clerk was struggling with it. That may be why they were so impressed when I walked up, held the ball in my palm, covered it with my own chop cup and the ball was suddenly gone.

Personally I thought that the quality of the device and the quality of the workmanship just wasn't up to the price.
