Which cups and balls should I buy on PenguinMagic? I'm not sure, but I don't reallly want to spend 100 dollars on the Penguin cups. I'm not sure what to get. I already have "Aluminum Cups and Balls" and they get good reactions. I just want a new one. Which one?

save your money and get a card wallet.

It's only 99 cents.

90 cents with the 10% discount.

Get either Johnson cups, or Gary Animal's cups. Either one starts at around US$350 to 500.

I know absolutely nothing about cups and balls, but I'm assuming if he doesnt want to pay $100 for Penguin cups, he won't want to pay $300 - $400 on any other cups.

Yep, if you buy shoddy equipment you get shoddy performances. If you buy the best equipment, then when your performance ability gets better you have equipment that will last for years of use.

The cheap cups handle like cheap cups. They are hard to load even the small balls and won't take an orange or baseball as a load. Hey it's his money to throw away.

Penn and teller use $0.30 soda cups, and they manage to load small balls, oranges and baseballs.

I would recommend a set of chop cup and ball. You can use it a a standard chop cup, standard cups and ball or adding the chop cup with it you can do some really neat effects.
