Wayno is right, but the shoulder also helps keep the cups from wedging together for any moves that require nesting. They should also have a "well" in the base deep enough that any balls resting there don't roll off.

If you're creative enough on your own, you could use coffee mugs and make your own routine. But first you need to know the basics and the easiest way is to buy a set of cups designed for the task. The Bazar de Magia cups sold here on Penguin is probably the cheapest starter set you'll find here. Don't be tempted by the low price of the Uday cups. They lack some qualities necessary to learn certain moves properly.


Out of curiousity, what is wrong with a nice brass set of Uday Cups?

I've heard they're really thin and light. Even the Aluminum Bazars are supposedly better. I own the Aluminum Bazar Di Magia's and they work well enough for my needs. I'm thinking of doing a PK Ring Chop routine with one cup. But that's a different thread altogether.

Heh. My kind of woman. ;)

Couldn't resist touching this one. Heh. Left yourself wide open. Boy does my maturity show today.

I resisted but it was tough.

I do like the wood with brass tips.

If you want to buy some cups and balls from the store, make sure you get ones that nest well with each other.


A nesting set isn't necessary. Though there are some displays that rely on them nesting.

I like the resting sets so much more than the other cups. there are sets out there that are ungimmicked and sets that have the gimmicked cup (chop cup) the shop close to me has a whole china cabinet display full of them. i prefer the silver ones better because they are shinier and catch peoples eyes better. plus my balls (eheheheheh) are red so that helps.

I think you should just get a good $35 set. The cups last a while, (If you're not an idiot with them...) and the balls will last a while two. (Unless you step on them...)
