pretty much same at the cellu balls
I would say seamless balls are more interesting to watch

Not sure how to word it out.
pretty much same till the plastic chunk (after measurement)
then it gets put into a suction thing and it is suck into a round shape

and just re-look at the video, now imagine of all those factory workers need to suck in celluloid hazard smells.
Or even fight fire when it catches flame

Seamless ball manufacturer is quite discreet about their production.

I showed this video to a friend. He says this is not the production process of D 40+, it's of the old DHS plastic ball.

I like that the quality of the balls is going up and the price is decreasing.
