According to various rappers, nothing is harder than guns. So we named these Neoballs after the hardest part of guns - the metal. Our Gun-Metal Neoballs are composed of black nickel, which provides a sleek decorative coating that offers equal protection as Nickel neodymium magnet balls (which is a lot of protection, check them out. The color is very similar to charcoal, except shiny, or George Clooney’s hair in 1998 except a magnetic sphere, or Nickel neodymium balls except dark.

Electro neodymium magnetic balls are harder overall than their Coated relatives, and nickel is the hardest of our Electro platings. The coating may corrode slightly over extended periods of time - but used with care (and not given to children, because children eat fun, shiny magnets - and later require not-fun, not-shiny medical surgery), these neodymium magnets can provide years of shiny, gun-metal-y, magnetic fun. The color doped coating can rub off onto the hands, and will leave discoloration on the skin after extended use and rough kneading - similar to your mom.

Comes with:

  • 216 Gun Metal Neoballs (5mm) Magnet Spheres
  • Sliding Metal Case
  • A revival of your childlike sense of wonder

Gun Metal Corrosive Resistance

Slightly susceptible to oxidation, rusting, tarnishing, and moisture erosion.


Gun Metal Geometric Tolerance

Pretty great shape and size consistency of magnets. These magnets feature a variance of ± 0.02mm. The only magnets with a tighter tolerance are Zen Magnets.


Gun Metal Impact Hardness

Superb shielding to collision, scraping, hitting and dropping. These are the magnets to have if you play rough.


Gun Metal Abrasive Strength

Okay strength against rubbing, wiping, brushing, and kneading. This coating will rub off onto your hands after extended use.



Neoballs are premium sculpture magnet spheres by the Zen Magnets Company. 5mm diameter, n35 grade neodymium, Nickel Plated Neoballs feature a ± 0.02mm tolerance, meaning they lie flat in a sheet - similar to your mom, are more rigid in a frame, and behave more consistently during construction. Due to our constant struggle for perfection, colors may vary slightly from batch to batch. We are the last American rare earth magnet sphere company, and the only one still fighting for the right to sell High Powered magnet sets in the US.

Gun Metal Neoballs set of 216

These were purchased for my ten year old nephew for Christmas last year. He's asked for another set this year. He's very intelligent and enjoys creating. Glad I got them and that they were a hit!

216 Set: Gun-Metal Neoballs


these are an amazing toy - after a few years though they start to wear down

i would recommend just getting nickle or zen magnets instead

i dont know if i took bad care of my magnets or what but they feel worse and dont make straight chains or feel uniform at all however i would highly recommend nickle or zen magnets


Gave several sets as gifts - addictive fun!

Not the quality that I expected.

I got two of the gun metal sets and have had them for a few weeks. After just those three weeks or so, I am finding dents and discoloration. I am not hard on the magnets either. They just sit at my desk and only get used while I am at work. I should probably have opted for the original.
