I think its Ben Salina's Encyclopedia of Spongeballs is pretty good.

Personally if your a younger guy I recommend Sponge by Jay Noblezada. He is a much better teacher for the younger generation and also seems more upbeat about his magic and teaching than others.

Has anyone seen *BOTH* Salinas' and Noblezada's videos? I've heard good things about both. Reading the contents of Noblezada's 90 min video sounds like it covers pretty much only the routines in Wilson's Complete Course in Magic, and Salinas' 150 min video seems like it might cover more. It'd be nice if someone has actually seen both.

I have both. Sponge teaches some nice routines in my opinion and the basic techniques. While Salina's video doesnt have as nice routines in my opinion it does teach you a larger variety of sleights.

Would you say there is value in owning both videos?

I have the DVD produced by Magic Makers http://www.magicmakersinc.com/dvds/spongeballs.html which is performed by Ben Salinas, so I have already the basics (I think) but am looking for additional handling and routines.

Yes, get both! in ITBTWC it is more like a teaching of the basics and other handling's with a few routines. WGM you get performances with explanations!

Hope this helped
