Phoenix 2 Cups | Copper | Satin Finish

The Phoenix 2 cups are the newest generation of the original Ross Bertam style of cups. Charlie Miller made this cup style famous when he released his version of this cup decades ago thru Magic Inc. and called it "A Man's Cup". He called it that because the cups were hefty and fit well in the hand. That cup was recreated by RNT and resurrected as the "Phoenix Cup" and is still available from Tom Franks. This cup is an improvement on the Phoenix Cup and now holds a tennis ball size load and accommodates 3 1" balls on the saddle when the cups are nested. During the redesign we decided to build the cup from the ground up to be spun in heavy .064 copper and that modification tightened up the tolerances on the cup so there is absolutely no unnecessary wobbling when the cups are stacked - they nest firmly but don't stick. What was at one time "A Man's Cup", is today a very serious, heavy weight, masculine cup for the discriminating performer who wants a little piece of history AND all the modern advancements one has come to expect in a cup.

Craftsmanship

Each cup is hand spun from the original RNT II tooling in heavy .064 copper with a brushed satin finish outside and a flat satin finish inside.

Reviews

I guess this review is mostly about aesthetics, as the Foxy 3 and Mendoza cups are also great and they also will hold a tennis ball too. You can't go wrong with any of those sets. But I think the Phoenix 2 cups are the coolest looking with the single bead and flatter top.
