When we first explored the idea of carrying sponge balls our first requirement was, as it always is - they have to be cool. We've all seen those bright red sponge balls. Anytime a magician pulls one or more of them out, you immediately think of one thing.

Clown noses.

Instead of looking like a cold-blooded clown killer, we knew we had to have something that looked edgy or classy. It was right there in front of us. A color we fully embrace here at Ellusionist. Black. A Black that truly 'pops' and makes sponge balls cool.

Now that we knew how to make them look good, they had to feel good too. They had to be squishy enough to hide with a palm, pinch or in multiples, but also really tough. A professionally made piece of equipment that would last the test of time, they had to be right for REAL WORKERS.

When it comes to quality Sponge balls there is only one name that springs to mind. Goshman.
Goshman produces the best sponge balls out there, but could they live up to our demanding criteria?

In a pinch, YES. There's simply no comparison. Using a new formula Goshman created a set of Black Sponge Balls that not only look amazing but are so durable, you can park your car on them for the night and the sponge ball will still pop right back into shape.
THAT is a tough sponge ball
Designed with Workers in mind - these are the last set of Sponge balls you'll ever need. Pick up a set of 4 today.

Very noice

Wanted an easy way to get into sponge ball sleight of hand, great quality easy to use and wont mold into other shapes when you squeeze it which was a fear of mine instead it keeps the sphere shape and product even comes with a few examples of tricks, would reccomend. Thanks!!

One of the all-time greatest magic tricks of all time in black. I like these sponge balls a lot. I also have the red set that came with the "How To Be A Magician" Kit.

Before I started using the black sponges with the Johnny Paul Cups and Balls I used to have spectators say,
"Oh, clown noses." Not anymore! If you use sponges you've got to get these. Of course, if you're a clown, "Do what thou
wilt shall be the whole of the Law."

These.sponge balls rock in all the right ways. I have performed sponge ball routines before but I was never a fan of them as they seem childish. But the edgy black color elevates them to an adult level and when combined with street magic they just really pop. The feel of the Workers Black Sponge Balls is different from the usual balls I have used. They are soft and they have an equally soft texture not like the rough and grainy texture of some sponge balls. Their ability to rocket back into shape and their ability to hold their shape are major pluses in my book. Even if you do not perform sponge ball routines, do yourself a favor and pick up some of these and add them to your repertoire. The only downside is I had to buy a close up mat of a different color to replace the black one I have been using.

They're your stereo typical sponge balls but with the one exception of being black. That alone adds that little something extra to the sponge ball routine alot of people have seen before. They expect red or blue but not black. Worth it for that alone.

I have very little experience with sponge magic of any kind and I gotta say.... I have been missing out this is so easy, fun, and blows people away. The props themselves are perfect I was already brainstorming ideas the second I opened the box. Squishes perfectly into any type of pinch or palm that I have attempted with them and really durable, they hold their shape regardless of what I have put them through for the moment. Great prop to have around!!


Don't get me wrong, these are quality Goshman sponge balls in black. However, just like Randy said, these are just Goshman balls that every other magic dealer sells for less than $4. Also, they are not super soft. They are standard. So, the 3 star review isn't because the balls are bad, it's because E decided to call them "Workers" to go off all the great "Worker" content Adam Wilber is putting out. However, a name change doesn't justify an almost $10 price increase. Now, if they would have included a video of tricks and routines that you can do, then yes $12.99 would have been fine, but as it stands, these are just over priced regular Goshman sponge balls.


I tried to leave a review before, but it was never approved to be posted. I bought the "Workers Sponge Balls: from Ellusionist and when they arrived I saw that they were the same Goshman sponge balls that other dealers sell for less. Ellusionist calls them "Workers Sponge Balls" and sell them for $12.99. But they are the Goshman "regular sponge balls" (not super soft) that other dealers sell for much less. One dealer sells them for only $2.27!!!

I'm not sure why Ellusionist never posted my review (even though I was a verified customer). Maybe they will this time?

Just a heads up for those folks looking to buy these!
