Riser Micro Chop Cups by Jim Riser, Dennis Loomis(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Cutest Chop Cup and a Great Routine
This is the fabulous Riser Micro Chop Cup in both copper and stainless steel. The professional and entertaining routine that accompanies the props is by Dennis Loomis. What a team these two have been to release this item to the magic community. The cups are quite small, about the size of a shot glass, but don’t let the size fool you. This is practical and beautiful magic. These will not stay on your shelf and look pretty.
Jim Riser has done a fantastic job with the machining of these cups. Again, inside each cup you will find engraved “James P Riser” to authenticate these little wonders. If you do any chop cup routine, or even if you have no interest in the chop cup, I can guarantee you that you will love this set. The Loomis routine is performed right on your palm, which serves as a “table” for the cup; this is a great concept as you can feel the dislodging ball and rectifies one major problem I have encountered with chop cups.
The first picture also shows two current accessories:
- the Aldo Colombini’s Laser Cup routine with the red, white, blue, and combo balls (a devil handkerchief, included, but not pictured); and
- the Knock-Out Disk. Jim plans to release a special Sacagewea gaff coin in the near future for coin cup routines.
So, many possibilities abound with these cups. Again, thanks Jim and Dennis for such a great release.
Effect: Excellent for table hopping! All done in the hands – no table required! Can be done completely surrounded! For the finale, the cup is filled with liquid and vanishes! To the best of our knowledge – the world’s smallest chop cup! One of the world’s strongest routines! Everything is carried in the pockets! Cool!
The Combo Set. This includes the hand spun Deluxe Copper Micro Chop Cup , the hand spun Stainless Steel Micro Chop Cup, three chop balls designed and made especially for these cups (two magnetic and one regular), the complete Dennis Loomis Routine , the stainless steel flask , four final load Hi-Bounce balls, carrying bag , and the Vanishing Glass of Liquid gimmick plus one loose ball for vanishing the cup of liquid in a Topit.
