Any opinions on multiplying bottles would be greatly appreciated. I've never handled a set and before I make the investment, I'd to have an idea of difference between how the colored handles vs the black as well as the $450 set vs the $150 set. Thanks

To save you a lot of time and money, obtain Ken Brooke's manuscript on
"Multiplying Martinis"-which outlines his entire routine using eight bottles.
Then you can either spend a little or a lot, depending on your desire to own a set to practice with, or a set that will last a lifetime. The cheaper sets made in India
run $150-$200. The "Ken Brooke" style bottles usually run around $450-$500.
Good luck!

And if you can find someone who has it, Jonathan--the late Tommy Cooper's routine. Surely the funniest & most frenetic-ever!
At the end you can hardly see the table for bottles.

When I used to perform it--I had a small cardboard box, which held the first 2 bottles, in the tubes. There was a cardboard 'grid' in the bottom.In this grid were holes--just enough to hold the produced bottles. As the bottles appeared they went into this grid--the front of the box opened down for the audience to see. Then at the end--pull up the front flap-and exit carrying the box with the bottles inside.

I've finally got my routine up on YouTube

It's a slightly different take on the classic presentation

Love the idea of combining Schrdinger's cat with this effect. As if the concept has been made for it :-)
