These cups are worth every penny! I have used these cups for years doing Gazzo's Street Cups and
they are brilliant! My comparison is to the other set of cups I own (for just under a year) which
are the Gazzo street cups in bright chrome. God bless Gazzo and his super amazing cups but I do
prefer these Giant street cups for the street. I can get just a slightly bigger orange inside these
and I love the balance/weight. They have a slightly deeper dimple on top for the balls to rest in.
They're super sturdy so I don't worry about them hitting the pavement and they patina very nicely
into a very old rustic looking cup. I'm sure you can keep them shiny if you polish them. These cups
are an amazing value for your money!
Best value for the money & I'd use these before buying any other more expensive set of "street
cups". The balance is great and they can be seen from quite a distance. I'm planning on using them
doing Gazzo's routine!
I have nothing to compare it to seeing this is my first set. However, I really do love the cups &
there is plenty of room for final loads, which is very cool.
I have owned them and used them in many different situations, indoor shows, outdoor shows, streets,
festivals. These cups are like a good work horse, reliable sturdy, and they have a good weight to
I have not picked up my set of phoenix cups since I got theese. Thees allow this classic
of magic to be more visible to more people. Not just for close-up.
For anyone who performs the cups and balls on a regular basis and likes quality in their props this
is the set to own. I have had these cups since January of 2007 and love them. I replaced my Paul Fox
Cups with these and have not picked up the Fox cups since. As a collector of Cups and Balls (I own
13 different sets) I can honestly say these are by far the best I have used and own. Your final
loads can be huge and you will not regret owning a set of these cups.
I really like working with these cups.
I can honestly say i didn't know what to expect with these cups, but when i opened the box i new i
had gotten my moneys worth. I am fairly new to the cups and balls so i didn't want to blow 300 bucks
on a set of risers or gazzo cups which are hard to find anyways. They stack solid, have a wide
enough opening for medium/large oranges and have in my opinion the perfect weight. I'm pretty sure i
was the first one to order these from penguin since there were no other reviews or even a forum so i
wasn't sure what i was getting. But i will say this, for any magicians out there looking for a great
set of cups with a more friendly price buy these cups, don't be afraid cos' they are made by
magicmakers that doesn't make them bad cups at all. these things are beautiful.
