These cups handle effortlessly and sound great. They have a clear resonant tone when struck mouth up and a very bright sound during stacking, cup through cup moves, etc. The nickel finish seems very durable and polishes up beautifully with nothing more than a wipe down with a soft cloth. I was pleasantly surprised to find that each cup in my set could take a single 1 1/8 ball in the attic without any problems whatsoever. Although to be safe, make your purchase based on the dimensions given in the description. If using the Johnny Paul technique with the sponge balls, be aware that while a sponge ball will “vanish” easily, you’ve gotta bring the cup down with some force to bring it back. That’s not a flaw. Watch Johnny’s routine and you’ll see that’s what he did. The good news is that this set of steel cups should handle that with no problem as well as the juggling moves, etc. Overall, this is a very pretty, functional set of cups. If you’re thinking about getting a set, go ahead and do it before they’re gone.
I am very sorry I purchased this product. Each product description I read spoke of how versatile and easy to use the Super Force Glass is supposed to be. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. First of all, every handling included in the instructions requires you to hide the "powerful secret" at the time of selection by holding the glass around half of its circumference. No given handlings will allow you to offer the glass by holding the stem only (as one retailer is pictured holding it). When offering the glass for billet selection, you are required to either hold the glass at a slight distance from the spectator (so they don’t contact the "powerful secret" when reaching inside), or you actually have to dump some billets from the glass into your hand before you can offer the selection. A more difficult (and very angly) handling is given, which is supposedly better, but let’s just say that not only does the glass still have to be handled around half its circumference, but you will be tenkai palming before and after the force. Not quite "easy as pie" as another retailer stated. The elegance of offering a selection to a spectator from a clear glass is quite appealing. Unfortunately, the Super Force Glass requires suspicious and sometimes even noisy handling which destroys all hope of a natural, elegant performance. The instructions are poorly written. It is also very overpriced for what you receive. I hope this review saves someone some money.
