I have recently received a small copper Chop Cup that I order and it came with all the stuff it said it would. However the "gimmick" is not "powerful" enough; how can I solve this problem.... without making the gimmick too powerful?

Put a magnet in the chop ball instead of just a shim.

A shim is a small (and usually weak) magent or small piece of metal that has some magnetic properties.
X's post is just fine; Besides he is a mod.

He's not revealing anything more than mentioning the Tarantula is an ITR....which you did in your review of it. Heck it isn't revealing much more than admitting a TT is a prosthetic thumb! :D

After struggling with improperly matched Chop Cups, I have learned there are two things I can do. Either purchase all my products from Rings n Things (they have adjustable Chop balls) or dump the idea of a "Chopped" cup altogether and substitute a PK ring and an ungaffed cup. This way I can feel the pull through the cup and control it accordingly. This does require a fairly strong mag ball and since I can control it I don't have any problem with it being too strong. Again, RnTII is one of your best choices for ball suppliers for either kind. Just tell them your needs and they'll make it to your specs.
