The chop cup is my number one, some of you may have seen or brought my routine, 'FINALLY - 50 years of magic', sorry for the plug.

My list has changed :/

1. extreme burn and such (Spectators can relate to money...)
2. Branded (easy, awesome way to reveal a card)
3. Frozen (pain in the rear to do, but really stunning.)
4. a good performance with Sponge balls (easy to get smiles and laughs with, spectator is involved etc.)
5. obviously you need a table for this, but I still love the good old cups and balls.

Too many peeps just took the time two write down gimmicks or props! I'd say that what is concerned is closeup effects.

I'd have to say here are my favorites as of late :

Ring on string to impossible location
Juan Tamariz's color changing packet trick (where you have weird cards appearing)
Sponge balls two in hand 1 to pocket routines and variants (Steve Dacri's is awesome)
Bill to anything from Tom Ellis
Silk to egg gag routine

And ... I have to add a 6th and a 7th but those are more for stage :
- Cardiographic
- John Gustaferro's Vino Aces.
