Hi. I am trying to locate the biggest sponge ball available. Does anyone know where I can find a large sponge ball, or any round object that can start in a relatively small space and can then expand instantly upon reveal.

Thanks for any help.

Ask your local magic dealer if they can get the 4 inch Goshman sponge ball. I know a number of larger dealers around the US can get them if they do not have them. That is what I know to be the largest Goshman sponge available, BUT...

not the largest. I can remember seeing one that was 6 inches but at that point, you have to start looking at pockets or other places to store it until needed. I must apologize but I cannot recall where I saw it because it was some time ago. You might check toy stores because some of them may have the large and quite soft playground sponge balls available, some the size of basketballs...

I hope this information is useful to you.

I wonder why Goshman no longer makes the 8" super softs. I have one and they present a number of great possibilities.

Years ago my local shop had 12" sponge balls but I am not sure who the maker was. I recently saw some large ones on amazon.com of all places. Try there.

Hope this helps,

Even the 4" ball fluffs up to a larger size when it is freshly washed.

5 inch are the biggest I've seen being regularly produced for magicians. A quick google search should turn up several options for where to get them at. You can try getting some bigger ones that aren't meant for magic although those usually aren't anywhere near as soft as the ones meant for magic. Here's an 8.5 inch version: http://www.ssww.com/item/uncoated-foam-ball-W2342/

Great link. But I agree with Alan, I want the giant super softs.

For me the big three are cards, coins, and sponge balls.

Does Goshman make all the sponge balls? Who else makes them?

It's just weird that nobody is pushing sponge ball technology.

Think of all the trick cards and coins...

There is another company or two making sponge products for magicians, but Goshman simply happens to be considered the best - and for good reason. That being the case, it would be hard for anyone to compete with the quality of Goshman.
