Topic: Sponge ball dvd?

I'm looking for a DVD that would contain a sponge ball routine fit for restaurant / table hopping, where at the end, the person is left holding 10-20 small balls in their hand.

Any suggestions?

World's Greatest Magic Sponge ball DVD. Has several routines by the greats. Eugene Burgers routine is in there and ends in the way you want.

The Pat Page Sponge Ball DVD is worth it's weight in gold - and includes the move for the finale you are after (based upon Dr. Jak's 'multi-ball' that was marketed by Goshman).

The above suggestions are excellent and I would highly recommend both.

I know you asked for DVDs, but I want to point out another resource wherein you might find another routine, the handling of which can be changed or modified to suit your desired outcome. It is a routine called Benson Burner from the book Vortex by Tom Stone. It is a Benson Bowl Routine, but I have adapted the routine for table hopping, keeping the originial climax, which has a bunch of tiny sponge balls coming out of the bowl. In table hopping, this can be done using a coffee cup, or it can be done as a traditional sponge ball routine using the hand(s) of a participant.

Besides that routine, Vortex is full of indespensible thoughts and ideas, a countless number of excellet effects and routines.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Steve Dacri's Sponge Ball Toolkit is both educational and entertaining at the same time. Comes highly recommended.

Ben Salinas has a good one called The Encylopedia of Sponge Magic.
