I wasn't sure whether to put this thread in the coins section because it's partly about coins or to put it in the close-up section because it's partly about sponge balls. So sorry if it should be in another section.

My question is, I have some basic coin fundamentals down, along with a few effects and what not. Do you think that sponge balls would come pretty easy for me?

I'm really not sure how one relates to another, but if you have the ability to manipulate one object, you shouldn't have any problems with the other. Just remember, that there are very few "moves" in common between the two.

Well Sponge Balls are much more closely related to coins than cards, that's for sure.
It is true that some coin sleights are used in sponge ball routines, so it will be easier for you than starting with the sponges just from scratch.
I noticed that when my coin retention vanish got better, so did my Sponge retention vanish.

I would say that coin work will help you a decent bit with the Sponge Balls.

Me too. A few of the common moves between the two would be the Palm, The French Drop and a front/back finger clip.
