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 cup 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 from .050" Aluminum. The exterior and interior are a brushed satin finish.


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

This is quality! I just got my Mini Chop Cup and I'm already in love with it. I ordered to Germany so shipping took a while, but I have to say:
This is the best magic prop I have ever owned! The quality is awesome and this was definitly not my last order from RnT. Thank you so much for the great customer service and the awesome quality.
For everyone who s not sure yet:
I own several chop cups but this is by far the best! If you are serious about your magic, you wanna get a Chop Cup from RnT!
Thank you so much and best regards from Germany!
