I just saw a set of Super Soft Red Balls for sale that are made by TENYO and they're selling for $50 on the web! What the hell makes these things so darn good and beter than gosh that would make them so expensive? Anyone know????



They are even softer than the supersoft. Very compressible and it bounces back very fast. After more than 10 years they still work great for me.

I am also wondering why they are pricey!

Wow...I've found the best way to turn a Super Soft into something even softer is to just add water. That flufs em' up to almost twice their size...and that's free!

Although the supersofts double in size, the regulars do not.
Goshman also made 'deluxe' balls. I heard a rumor that they no longer make these, however.

They probably meant supersoft instead of deluxe. He still makes supersoft.

The tenyo ones in good condition after 20years would make them so pricey as they are no longer made.
I have a working set and a backup set and have never hads to use the back up set. They hold up very well over time and the goshman ones just don't feel the same or hold up as well in my experience. The Goshman ones are available and easy to find so that is a plus.

The supersoft and deluxe are not the same.
Here are some of the differences:
1. The box that the deluxe come in has a round yellow sticker that says 'deluxe'.
2. The deluxe are not as compressible as the supersoft (but more compressible than the regular)
3. The color on the deluxe is brighter than both the regular and supersoft.
4. The shape of the deluxe is rounder than the supersoft and the regulars.

In my opinion the 'best' spongeball would be a 1.75" deluxe.

Folks,
Kindly, inquire with the poster above "japanmagic"; regarding the line of Japanese sponge balls that he sells; I have purchased two sets from him that are absolutely superb; the "pores" of the sponge are super fine, the "spring" is super fast which prevents the balls from flying off the specs hand when opening; the colors are intense and so far have not become "shop worn" like the Goshman sponges;

Prices are higher than Goshman's (imports from Japan), & the balls need to be initially rinsed with cold water to fluff away a squashed shape due to shipping, after that they are okay;

Thanks, BWind. I'll do that as I need to get some spares. I have worked with them before and, you are right, they are amazing to work with.
