Deluxe Chop Cup by Bazar de Magia (Copper)
Date Added: 06/02/2005 by Richard Brooks
Bazar De Magia manufactures a decent chop cup. It isn't great, it certainly isn't even close to being the best, but the best chop sups cost up to $400.
This chop cup satisfies all my minimum requirements for a chop cup. You can examine the cup and there will be no trace of a gimmick. The gimmick is securely in place and won't rattle or fall out. The Gimmick is well balanced so it works well and does so every time.
Why am I not giving it the highest rank? The metal is lightweight and not well balanced. You won't be doing many flourishes with it. The cup is subject to dings and scratches if you drop it. It just doesn't FEEL as nice as the expensive ones do.
But you can do a professional quality act with this cup. I would suggest that you purchase a routine for it if you don't already have one.
Please note. I am giving this 4 stars because this is the very top of the line for the cheaper cups.
