when i was reading the review on this product i read somthing about somebody saying they were too
big. well just to help that person out the reason of their size is so if you know how you could load
larger objects in the cups for the finally but if you still want smaller cups i recently was
watching the demos and saw penguin is now selling mini penguin cups for about the same price of
these cups so if the person who wrote about the size is reading the review just to see how the
reviews on this product is getting or anybody else about to complain about the size i hope this

Here are some really nice cups for a good price. The cups and balls is has been around for a long
time and for a very good reason. The routine is very visual and always gets good reactions from the
crowd. The cups aren't too heavy so they are easy to carry around. The downside to aluminum though
is that it's a soft metal so just be careful with them. You definitely don't want any dents in these
babies. If you are new to the cups and balls, this is a good set to start with.

This is one of my best tricks ever! you can do thd simple routine or do mark wilsons routine in his
book and turn the cup and balls into a unforgetable experience! highly reccomended! pros:
unforgetable extremeley easy! good 4 beginners and pros
cons: some times hard 2 hide the secret when letting a spectator investigate

I love these Cups there pretty durable, Light, perfect size, not to big, not to small. I do
recommend you be very careful with them though becasue if you drop them they might dent. But I say
BUY THESE TODAY! I don't think I'll ever buy another set in my life!
These cups are excellent value for money,The routine that it comes with is good but not great. I
would reccomend buying a book/video/DVD with more effects.
But out of 10 i would rate these 10!
These cups are very nice indeed, of course they are not of the same quality as the Penguin cups but
for 20$ you get a lot of good stuff. Not to mention that I was able to find two other balls that are
exactly like the one that came with my set so now I have 3 balls of different colors to use as big
So now I have all the tools to practice and perform great routines. Don't worry
about reflections in the aluminum, if you handle them right no one will ever pick it up.
might get a set of high quality cups someday, but I don't see the necessity at this point. For the
moment I have four great routines down including the one shown in the demo for the copper Penguin
Cups and people just love it!!!
One more thing though... Practice!!! ;)
I would suggest that if you are really serious about being a Magician that you save some money and
buy a good set of Cups and Balls. The best Cup and Ball set for the money is Penguin Magics Penguin
Cups. The Penguin Cups set is almost perfect. Penguin Cups are the finest set of Cups and Balls that
Penguin Magic offers. They're under a hundred dollars and are not really that expensive like some
Cup and Ball sets are. They are made out of solid copper and will last you a life time.
you do not want to spend that kind of money right now on a set of Cups and Balls then your next best
choice would be Penguin Magics Aluminum Cups and Balls. These are a really nice set of aluminum
Cups and Balls and they are nicely balanced. This is what I bought and this is what I use. Im happy
with them and someday I will probably purchase the Penguin Cups but for now, Im using Penguin
Magics Aluminum Cup and Ball set. They are a great beginner Cup and Ball set for the money.
Ignore the negative reviews about Penguin Magics Aluminum Cup and Ball set. This set is the
correct size, the right weight and they are nicely balanced. Dont worry about your spectators
seeing the reflection of your red ball on the inside of the aluminum cup. The Aluminum used in this
Cup and Ball set is not very shiny but nice dull finish. Also remember that correct handling of the
cups and practicing of the routine will take care of any reflection on the inside of the aluminum
cup. Ive seen photographs of many famous Magicians, like Dai Vernon, using some non-copper
reflective shiny metal Cup and Ball sets. The Magician makes the magic not the props.
would highly recommend that you purchase Penguin Magics Aluminum Cup and Ball set and learn this
great Classic magic effect. The Cups and Balls routine is popular for a reason and it packs small
but plays big.
I got this set of cups because I wanted to upgrade from the plastic set, and I'm glad I made the
change! These cups are great for use in a full routine with a jumbo load at the end becasue they are
bigger than the plastic set. It's worth the money. A good set of cups gives your magic a
professional look. Practice, so the whole thing looks professional.
These cups are really awesome, they are durable. I was a little disappointed by the size of them
though, they look a lot bigger than they really are.
These cups are great to use for any cups and ball routine I've had mine for a long time and they
have never let me down.
