I have been advised that Ball Watch USA will be having a price increase on or about April 1. I have not heard anything about the other markets.
If you have a Ball on your horizon, now is the time to make your best deal.
From what I have seen, the increases are across the board with many co's.
Movement pricing from ETA, the Euro, and the Swiss Franc, along with traditional increases this time of year are what I believe is fueling the increase.
