This is a great effect. Perfect for Table Hopping. So easy to carry around. A Stream lined version of this classic Effect, Using Flash Paper. Gives the cups and balls a different twist. The Cups themselves could of had a bit more room between them. I used Flash Paper Balls of about 2" by 2". However, the first ball penetration comes out a bit flat at times, so either make smaller ones, or don't set up too early before first performance, and keep cups as loose as possible in pockets. They are nice quality cups though, and I doubt you could find better. They come with a cloth bag for protection.

I could not believe the reactions I received it is now a regular closer in my act, the chop cup may be retired.

The cups you get are a fair bit bigger than the ones Garry uses in the video, so not quite as practical for walk-around as they would bulk up your pocket to much. Having said that, the quality of the cups is good and there is actually a small ridge on top making it easier to put all three balls on top for the last phase which is not as easy with the cups that Garry uses.
