I got a 20 lb bag of jumbo potatoes at walmart for $3, each weighs about a pound... everyone of em is more than 2" in diameter, and some are about 10" long, so almost all of them can be cut in half to make for two rounds.

How well do those balls fit in 1" PVC...too much slack or tight? I just bid on a smaller batch of 150.

25 dozen golf balls. $105.

Call it $0.40/ball by the time you pay for shipping?

They all very slightly, but roll down on there own but not fast. Just enough air gets by to let them roll. I'd say just right.

I got my golf balls on Ebay. I believe it was 700 for $40 and $40 for shipping. Comes out to a total of about 11.5 cents per ball including shipping. They were in pretty good condition too.

I currently work at a supermarket and the cartoon-marble action expired so they had some left.
