Don Alan Chop Cup by RNT II

(c. 2004) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Effect: The Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup has a wide 3 3/8 inch mouth that swallows almost anything you can throw at it. Big enough for a baseball, the cup comfortably hold a lemon, an apple, an orange or any like-sized load of your choice. Tennis ball? No problem. In fact, if you produce a tennis ball out of this cup, you owe it to yourself to produce something even bigger! As chop cups go, the Don Alan Full Size Chop Cup gives you the largest load capacity of any commercially available cup.

The Don Alan Full Size cup design has no mouth bead, and no shoulder beads. It incorporates two dress lines around the deep-dish saddle and has a drastic radius in the rounded sidewall which amplifies the size of the final load ball, creating the illusion that the ball is actually bigger than the cup, when a maximum size load is produced and is rested on the cup’s saddle. Of course, such a display is totally unnecessary after your audience has experienced the jumbo size loads that can fit into this cup.

The cup is so large that you shouldn’t use any Chopped Balls that are smaller than 1 inch in diameter with it. Smaller balls just look disproportionate to the jumbo size of the cup. We recommend, and include 1 1/8 inch balls, but 1 3/8 inch balls will work just as well, if not better.

    Feel the Weight and the Quality!

    Wow this Don Alan Chop Cup from the newly reformed Rings ‘N’ Things II is a beauty! Just be careful you don’t drop it – not because it will harm the cup, but because it’ll put a dent in your floor!

    It looks gorgeous, and feels so solid in your hands you just feel like a pro when you pick this baby up. The bronze lip and inside lining looks very impressive too. I am told that this is the last run of these and there are only a handful left so I suggest you put your dancing shoes on and get on over to Howie at TheTrickery to pick one of these beauties up.

    One of the problems I’ve had with some other Chop Cups in the past is they were too light and so the dislodging of the ball seemed like an unnatural operation. But with this guy there are no problems like that.

    We all would like to do the Cups + Balls, but who has time to do it justice? At least if you start with the Chop Cup, you have a chance that you will get to the Cups + Balls some day. And in the process you get to understand why this is such a beatufiul effect. It comes with the classic routine by Don Alan. There are also many fine things to do with the Chop Cup in Mark Wilson’s book: The Chop Cup.

    If you want to perform the chop cup then you will be hard pushed to find a more beautiful prop to work with.

    Highly recommended!
