On the pictures in the Spaceflight101 article you see that
the 58 cm sphere has a half black/half shining apperance.
When orientatrd favorable it must be visible in bino's and 
certainly with a tracking telescope.
I remember from years back I've seen trash canisters much
smaller jettisoned from the MIR station. They were about 
mag 7-8 and visible in a rather small bino.

?Any estimate on the magnitude (brightness) of SpinSat?

I'm hoping to image/track it with a tracking telescope here.
