Well, my set of Mega Street cups arrived this morning. I promised a review of these, and here it is.
First, I'll point out that there is no actual label on the box or piece of paper with the cups that indicates that they are actually from Magic Makers. I have reason to believe that they come from them, but there is no real proof of that. This said, here's what you get.
Three copper cups, each weighing 7.1 oz., and four 1 1/4 inch crocheted balls. The cups are about 1/4 inch shorter than a Paul Fox style Chick Cup. The weight is a little less than the Busby version of this cup. The mouth diameter is enough that the cups will take a baseball with ease.
They are shaped very much like a standard Paul Fox cup -- with two rings -- not three as in the PF/DD chick cups.
The workmanship is good. There are no obvious flaws -- the rim beads are very slightly open, but they are rolled evenly. The finish is also fairly nice. There are a few spinning lines, but most of these have been polished away.
I wouldn't recommend beating on them with your wand. However, for the price, they are certainly a bargain! That is, the "street price" of $99 to $149. The MSRP on these is $349. That's a little steep for this cup. However, I've paid more and gotten less.
I'll give these 4 1/2 stars out of five -- based on the low price.
