I bought 6" globe to do panoramic maps for 3D modeling. For this reason the globe has to be close to spherical. Description states that "there are no stems to distract from the spherical shape", and advertised picture shows no signs of distortion.
Unfortunately, even though the globe doesn't have visible stems, it is far from spherical; I can't produce kind of image that seller displays. Globe has latitudinal bands that greatly distort the reflection (see video).
Now... I realize that the sphere isn't sold for my purposes. You should realize that my intention (for any product that I buy) is beside the point. Honestly, I don't see particular reason, except to make funny faces (this is advertisement part), to use this globe; 6" is the size that you can appreciate, even as a decoration, from the distance at which distortions are quite visible.
I tried to send it back but seller refusing to pay for shipping (1/3 of the price). Then I asked for discount, but seller is not interested to negotiate. Now I have something that I will not use, and looking for better quality sphere. Any idea where to get one?
Update: behind the strategically placed label, that I thought to preserve in case I send the ball back, were two big blemishes.

This globe was nice, but not perfect for my HDRI photography as the surface is not perfectly smoothed... but for the price I can't really complain

My grandmother had a silver gazing globe when I was a child, and it fascinated me. When I grew up, built a home and established a yard, I bought one. For 30 years it sat upon its pedestal gleaming beautifully. Then one morning, after a raging storm I found it broken. I immediately purchased another... and we had a rash of stormy weather... baseball sized hail and tornadoes and straightline winds a couple months ago... smashed to smithereens, along with the other glass globes I'd strategically and artistically placed around in my Argosy Garden––a peaceful place to sit and contemplate, read, rest, commune with nature. Therefore, I decided I'd begin replacing globes with stainless steel... surely, unless they are blown from here to Timbucto, they should withstand a bit of bouncing around. And, we have had two bad storms since, in May, and these new globes have withstood indeed. Never even blew off their stands. So far, they are gleaming like new. I approve.

Well made globe. Solid stainless steel. There is one small (about 3/16 inch) hole drilled underneath the removable bar code sticker, I think it is there so that air pressure equalizes when the globe heats up and cools down (when I removed the sticker I heard air hissing into the globe since the air pressure where I am is greater than where it was made). If you look closely you can see the seam where the two hemispheres were welded together, but it is not noticeable at all from about 3 feet.

I bought this to replace a glass gazing ball, it is beautiful and will not break. It is completely round unlike the glass one. It came quickly and well packaged.

i bought this for photography for VFX.

pros: cheap, great size, very light - just under 1 pound.

cons: the surface is acceptable for crude stuff, but if you want detailed reflections, go with a glass ball or something else. this ball has slightly visible seams and poles due to uneven shaping, and the polish on the surface is just a bit too rough, it shows a little of that 'brushed metal' look, with streaky anisotropic reflections.

for the price, i cant complain. its useful to me, but i'm going to keep looking for something with a better surface.
