Then definitely look for someone who carries the Bazar de Magia line, whether it's our own Bill Palmer, or some dealer closer to your side of the world. Get the copper or even the brass ones, you'll like them much better than the aluminum ones. They look nicer and feel better. The aluminum ones are basically a cheap shiny version of what you already have.

Mike,

With the current rate of exchange, you should order from over here somewhere. You'll get a huge deal.

I was browsing through ebay and came across these cups:

They are in my price range. Now all I need to know is if there good? Like the weight, size ect.

All I want is a farily nice set, nothing great. Are these a good price?

Those are not very good cups. They are aluminum, and therefore, quite light. The copper cups from Bazar de Magia (same manufacturer) are much better because of their weight. This is also true of the brass ones. The same seller there should be able to get them for you. The price will be in the neighborhood (I suppose) of £30 or so.

Saturday I did my cups and ball-bearings act on the street using a new set of Rings'n'Things II's Foxy IIs I bought from Stevens Magic here in Wichita. They're a good deal smaller than my Johnson Products cups, which means the ball bearings have to be smaller as well. They require a much more delicate touch, and that's turning me into a better handler. Additionally, I like the Chop Cup feature in this set. I use it to kick off the act with a one-cup "demonstration" using crocheted balls and rubber loads. Then I move to the ball bearings, and the contrast makes the three-cup act all that much more impressive. I was concerned about the small size of the cups and the ball bearings, but they were more than adequate for the audience to see. Lots of oohs and aahs, lots of laughs, lots of applause. The verdict: RNT II Foxy IIs KILLED! Smile

I used to use the big 'Gazzo/Animal' Cups ... great as you never have any problem finding an orange too large,,,
Have now got the Animal Babe cups and love 'em they just don't look like they can hold a tennis ball(my load of choice) and the audience does respond to this accordingly, smaller cups than I have ever used but the audiances haven't shrunk
