I love Jay Scott Berry's Magic of the Spheres using the Eclipse Gimmick. You show your hands empty then you produce a red sponge ball. The it becomes a green ball. Then a yellow ball. And finally a blue ball. Finally, that sponge ball also disappears and you show your hands empty once again. His performance of it is excellent. It takes some practice but it's not difficult. Petience and perseverence are key, though.

I haven't really looked into any routines- I really need too, but Dean Dill has a nice routine. Check out his site, http://www.deandill.com , its very innovative, and cool. You might want to check it out.

I still use the routine from Mark Wilson's Complete Course...with a minor change. I don't like the pocket penetration, but other than that I use the routine as written and it plays beautifully...

I use a routine which is straight out of a Pat Page video, I'm not sure if it is credited to anyone else though?
Pretty standard stuff, but plays well....one becomes 2, then I do the 10 count, then 1 for me 1 for the spectator and of course they all end up in spectators hand, then 2 become 3, then into the 2 in the pocket 1 in the hand thing a couple of times and finish with the spectator holding out thier hand expecting me to place 3 balls in there again but of course my hand is empty and it gives me a quick oppotunity to shake thier hand and say thank you very much :)

Greg's routine with the sponge napkins can be easily changed for real sponge balls.

I use a routine based on Mark Leveridge Master Routine. It's not going to slay magicians but it plays tremendously in any type of show.

<<I use a routine based on Mark Leveridge Master Routine>> - I have also just started using this routine, with a couple of changes to handling. Unfortunately it's not sold as a seperate item, you have to buy the whole book to get it, but it's nice.

I use Kenton Knepper's sponge ball routine in close up and unpublished. it uses no gimmicks and you can show ur hands empty and make sponge balls appear and you can also make a ball vanish in the spectators had and they feel it when the ball leaves.

I just bought this on eBay and I can't wait to get it. I understand Kenton's sponge ball work is great!

Hmmmm call me a sucker but I LOVE the rabbits! They make sense, are very cute, and extremely magical. Not only that, but they also have a very commercial ending that also makes some sort of sense. People absolutely SCREAM and yell with amazement when they open their hands. I use the 3-D bunnies but I just bought a bubble pack of the Adams Bunnies...just because I love them so much!

Mark Wilson's routine is my favourite.

The fact it can be done as a full routine, or just small parts is something I like.
