WHAT!!!!! What is your definition of "soon?" longer than a week I hope. How can you use them in a show without suficcient rehearsals? Granted the sponge ball routine is not brain surgery but it is part of an act that should look professional and polished.

You have a show soon and asking a good routine?
If you don't have a routine and you're new
with spongeballs why would you show a spongeball
effect? Don't use your new trick right away. Use tricks
that you can do well and smoothly.

The standard "1 in the hand 2 in the pocket" type routine is a good place to start.

Personaly, I found working sponges very easy and had it down with just a few hours practice.

hey people,

this thread is two and a half months old!!!
I think he has had time to learn the sponge balls.

either that, or his show sucked, the spectators lynched him, and now you can get a used set of sponge balls on e-bay, hardly been used.

I think the best tricks are when the magic occurs in the spectator's hand.

Make one change to two...simple stuff like that always amaze even the smartest of adults.

I disagree that a sponge ball routine is "easy". Yes, the sleights and mechanics involved are not very difficult, but the proper timing, misdirection, and presentation that should all be a part of any good routine do not come overnight, and often not in 9 days.
