If I buy a set of sponge balls, where is the best place to learn all the basic moves and structure a spongeball routine? Also, are there any spongeball gimmicks that I should purchase if I get a set of spongeballs?

Thanks for the help,

Cody

Just buy a set of Goshman sponge balls, learn the basic routine that comes with them, and when you get proficient at that, come back for more. It will cost you all of 5 bucks and some dedicated practice time. Hard to beat!

When I buy the set, will the instructions that come with it proficiently be able to teach me all the moves necessary for the routine?
Thanks for the help.

Cody,

I would HIGHLY recommend the Patrick Page secret seminars DVD on sponge balls. It is a great DVD taught by an amazing man and magician. As a matter of fact I think the six DVD set is as valuable as having the Tarbell course. At $12 a pop you would be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Best,

Dan-

Danny Boy is absolutely correct.

It's a shame that so many spend their money on the latest "fad magic" when they could learn so much from these cheap, great, wonderful DVDs/Tapes.

Brad Burt's video is also superb for this. I don't know if it is still available or not, however.

I'm sure Brad coud tell you. He's a member here.

Also, Scott Guinn's "Penaut Butter & Jelly" is a wonderfully routined version of the sponge balls. You can look him up here as well. Actually, you can find him here: http://www.greatscott-itsmagic.com/

A lot of general Magic books have a good Sponge ball routine. I believe Mark Wilson's complete coarse has one.

Within a few days, I'll head over to my local magic shop and pick me up a set of spongeballs and start practicing.

Check out Magic Video Depot. It's a site for magicians to post video for feedback and advice. If you search for spongeballs, you'll see a bunch of beginners trying out their stuff. It has some good stuff and some absolutely awful stuff. Sometimes the awful stuff is more helpful than the slick and polished routines where you can't see what they're doing.

Hope that helps.
