After years of putting it off, I finally acquired Shigeo Takagi's One Cup Routine at auction. The mix of props and instructions, however was a bit odd: Takagi's original solid cup, the v2 two-piece cup, and original Busby instructions for the original routine but not version 2. What I'm wondering is if the props were ever actually sold in this configuration (both cups together), or if this was simply an assemblage by the original owner. Given the lack of instructions for the two-piece version (which I'd love to obtain), I suspect the latter.

I just realized that I DO have the v2 instructions (in your Takagi book!). However, no wand came with what I bought.
