Michael Ammar Fab Fruit (veggies): cups and balls final loads

Winning Bid: $161.00

Michael Ammar’s Fab fruit are the perfect loads for your cups and balls routine.  Read below Bill Palmer’s (cups and balls master) thoughts on these items published in 2006 on the magic café.  Only difference is they became $25 each and most of them are no longer available even from Michael. Here is the perfect set for Michael’s published routine which is one of the best cups and balls routines ever devised (based upon Vernon’s routine).  You might not want to use the line “You never know what might turnip (turn-up)”  but if you do you have the turnip here!  Again no longer available. Mint condition. Perfect size!

Estimate $80-120

People who do the cups and balls are always looking for good final loads. After all, to paraphrase John Mendoza, once the loads come out, people forget most of what has gone before.

Michael’s personal cups and balls routine has evolved continuously over the past 30 years or so. For a while, he carried his loads in his hip pockets, even going so far as to have some special tailoring done so that he could perform jacketless. Recently, he discovered that the side and rear views of his trousers during the preliminary phases of the routine were not flattering, to say the least.

So, he decided to go to using his jacket pockets to hold the loads. This means that the size of the loads is limited to something that can easily fit into the pocket and be extracted from it without getting your hand caught in the pocket opening. Michael has also, for many years, championed the use of high quality artificial fruit. You can get fake fruit at Wal-Mart, but it has the distinct disadvantage of being light and hard. This means that it will talk when you put it into the cups. Mike’s Fab Fruit is made of a substance that is heavy and reasonably soft, so that it has a texture similar to real fruit, doesn’t talk when it goes into the cup, and it is heavy enough to stay put.

It’s not cheap, but it is worth the price. There are five different fruits available, lemon, lime, tomato, potato and turnip. Individually, they are $15.00 each. The set of five is $50.00, which is a great savings.

The new line of Fab Fruit is the perfect companion for the Ammar Cups. You can carry two loads in each of your jacket pockets, and you will be ready to perform for your audience.

I really like these fruits, and, as I said, with the cups they are a perfect match.
