great effect Report this review

People keep talking about the size your hands need to be to do this successfully. This is no different than any other skill involving misdirection. If you get your spectators looking in the right place, you could get away with putting anything in the cup. A great effect that, if done properly, gets fantastic reactions. Certainly takes practice, but for sure worth it. If anyone wants to see what a good version looks like, check out Paul Daniel's rendition.
Great Fun! - Good and more simple to carry around instead of Cups & Balls Report this review

This is like a simple version of cups and balls, I would actually recommend you buy this great product first before deciding if you would wish to purchase more advanced tricks such as Cups & Balls. Although it may not seem simple, it is simple and fast to learn plus you get amazing reactions! I would definitely buy this product, it's a great way to get started.

I just recently just bought a chop cup but not from penguin and it is great. I would have never guesed the secret on how to do it. But the company I bought it from didn't show me how to do the large item finally. Does anybody know any sites where I can get a free book on how to do it?

I think this trick is the best and so easy to do and the large item production at the end has the biggest reaction from the audience my version is making a apple appear under the cup which is a great effect in its self penguin magic has done its self proud on this one so add it the cart right now.
Good .. if performed correctly! Report this review

This trick needs a lot of practice, and you'll need to have quite big hands for the big finish where the large objects appear. Neither you can't do it anywhere you would like, and a little bit of prep. is needed.
If you are a beginner, stay away - If you like cups and balls, go for this one.
A classic Report this review

Every magician needs one. Like the cups and balls...the chop cup is a classic but combined with universal pull and some nice loads, this proves the height of your show. I personally use 2 big loads and one enormous load as a finale, combined with some fire from my wand. Honestly, the chop cup routine is only as good as your imagination. I personally found the demo not too good. Because I have been spoiled by my own routine, ahahahaha!

I love this amazing effect. It is a classic and I have put together my own routine and people love the jumbo loads at the end, it comes as such a big surprise.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Nice Chop Cup Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2005
The Chop Cup is another favorite Classic of magic. The Chop Cup is a single cup and ball routine that uses a gimmicked cup. A small ball is made to appear and disappear underneath the cup. At the climax of the Chop Cup routine there is usually the appearance of a large ball or a large piece of fruit from underneath the cup.
Most Close-up, Street, and Restaurant Magicians like to include a Chop Cup routine in their walk around magic because it is small, easy to carry, compact, simple to use, and their audiences loves the effect. Some Magicians would rather perform a Chop Cup routine instead of a Cups and Balls routine because it is easier for the spectators to follow and it takes up less space.
Penguin Magic sells a nice, light, well-made, well-balanced aluminum Chop Cup at a reasonable price that handles perfectly. Buy Penguin Magics Chop Cup and add another great magic effect to your routine.
