FANTASTIC VALUE Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2013
The Penguin Copper Cups are a FANTASTIC value! They're not only beautiful, they're heavy, strong and VERY well balanced. I don't mean they're too heavy, I mean they're substantial enough to handle well, not like the cheap aluminum ones we often buy to get started.

The bonus DVD by Carl Andrews was an unexpected plus. He has a nice routine worth viewing, even if you don't adopt it as your own.

The furnished balls seemed too small at first, but, as a group, they fit so well on top I use them all the time now. Even if you prefer larger balls you'll love these for practice - using them is like swinging a weighted bat before going up to the plate.

The inside is unfinished but the dull apearance prevents "flashing. If you don't like the copper as it tarnishes, use Turtle wax to seal them. For a beautiful, even patina clean them well with lemon or ketchup or whatever to strip them, then bake them in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Allow them to cool. Pick 'em up with CLEAN hands and wax them to seal finish. Wax again as needed (LIGHTLY!)

HAVE fun and paractice, practice, practice!

Overpriced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 23rd, 2005
To be completely honest I was expecting these cups to be much better than the ones that I recieved and I felt a little scammed. I have been doing cups and balls for a long time and I own the Johnson cups and wanted a new set of cups that I could throw around, but were still of good quality. These are nice cups, but I could have bought the same ones elsewhere (local magic shop or online) for about half the price I paid for these. I am just glad that I got a bunch of free stuff with them which helped make up for the high price tag. My suggestion: look around for some cheaper cups that are of the same quality...you can even find brass ones for much less than these.

Cups and balls review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2005
Now I love the cups and balls, its a classic and no magician should be without a set.

The reason for the three stars is simple: You can't fit much of a final load in them. Tangerines and small lemons if you're lucky.

The size I was after is large oranges and apples, but not these. I would recommend you look around before you buy a set of Penguin Cups. I can't help but feel that the Hype given to the cups in the video conned me a little bit.

Penguin Cups Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2009
These are truly wonderful cups, especially this 2nd generation of them. They are flawless!

I've always wanted some premium copper cups, but with prices at 300 dollars and above (sometimes WAY above!) I figured I'd never have any.

Thanks to Penguin Magic, we all can have beautiful cups at an incredible low price. I have seen some of those 300 dollar cups that are not any better than these.

These cups have a little secret too, they SING!

Set your Penguin cups on a close-up mat, mouth end up give them a tap with a metal tipped wand. What an amazing voice they have. That will add another one of the 5 senses to those witnessing a cups and balls performance.

3 cheers for Penguin Magic. Beautiful cups for the rest of us! I will no longer be envious of all those expensive cups I see.

Thank You.

PS: The balls I got with my cups are too dinky to use. That is my only complaint. They should come with 7/8 inch balls.

Good cups......but. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 29th, 2005
These cups are great to use, I take them out of thier pouch and people tell me they look good. The two major problems I have with these cups are:

1. They are far too expensive, I got a free DVD with them but I still think that I didnt get much bang for my buck.

2. They are such a pain in the neck to keep shiny, I practiced for a couple of hours straight when I got them, I put them in the pouch and when i took them out the next day they were all tarnished and faded!

Other than those two reasons I like these cups, I think that if I ever need another set I'll do some shopping around before I spend nearly a hundred bucks on cups again.

A little over rated Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2005
To be honest these cups are a little less than the hype that has been created. They are not the worst cups I have used, but for the price they leave a bit to be desired. I have handled copper cups much smaller that felt more substantial. You could find better cups for less and still have enough money to buy a dozen thumbtips.

Pretty good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2011
I bought these for a first set of copper cups for busking, to see how I like them. After spending a day using them along with my new buskers' pouch from theambitiouscard, I was pleased with the way these cups handles lacrosse balls as a final load. They sound nice and are fun to use, but they were not quite touch enough for me. After a day and a couple drops on Hollywood's hard floor, I found a single dent. It doesn't affect performance, but considering I only used it a day, I hoped for a little more durability. Other than that, it's na excellent cup to start with.

Very good for the $$ Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
I think these are a nice set of cups for the money they cost. They are not paul fox cups but then again they don't have the price tag either. I used these cups for two years until I purchased the much larger street cups. I still like these cups and they are an excellent set for the beginner who is serious about learning the cups and balls. A few I see have been disapointed and I am not sure why I have found them a well made heavy set of copper cups. Don't beleive the garbage being said about them. I have 15 sets of cups from several manufactures and these are not my best set but they are very good and a fraction of the price I have paid for some. One set was way to much and I am scared to use them in case I damage them. Not really a good investment when you think about it that way Do not hesitate to buy this set of cups.

Good value for the money! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 7th, 2010
They are of heavy gauge and nest well.

Because they are unfinished on the inside, I got excellent results by using a 3M pad and and tarnish remover. (Just be careful of the outside because you don't want to scratch the nice finish.)

The balls supplied are a little too small for my liking so keep that in mind when ordering because Penguin sells larger sizes.

I also enjoyed the bonus DVD, Carl Andrews Table Hopping Cups & Balls.

Recommended.
