Don Alan Mini Chop Cup | Aluminum | Satin Finish

Don Alan Mini Chop Cup

The Don Alan Mini Chop Cup | Aluminum | Satin Finish is the best little walk-around chop cup ever produced. The Don Alan Mini Chop Cup has a 2 inch mouth, requires little table space, can be used on your palm or a spectator's palm. The Don Alan Mini Size cup design incorporates a drastic radius in the rounded top that amplifies the size of the final load ball, creating an illusion that the ball is actually bigger than the cup when the load ball is rested on the cup's saddle.

Included is a 1 5/8" RNT Red Load Ball. Since the cup was originally designed to hold a golf ball for a load, it can be kind of difficult to find a crocheted load ball that fits well into this cup. We produce these balls specifically for this cups and include one with each purchase. Other colors are available, but only RNT Red is included.

We feel it is important to mention that different size balls can be used with this cup depending upon your preference. 7/8" diameter balls can be used, and even a 1" ball can be used, which gives the ball greater visibility, but there is a strong argument that smaller balls should be used to increase the contrast and surprise of the final load. We prefer to use the 3/4" balls, you may prefer otherwise.


Each cup is hand spun in .050 Aluminum from the original RNT II Don Alan Mini Chop Cup tooling. The exterior and interior are a brushed satin finish.


Don Alan Mini Chop Cup | Aluminum | Satin Finish is made entirely in the USA.
