    I know Guinness World Records consider any ball of tape to be the same regardless of the kind of tape used. I should know, my Tape Ball currently weights 620 Pounds. You can look it up (Scott Bartlett)

    I wrapped a line of tape around one axis and then around the other axis to get the initial round shape after that its just adding more to the parts that are less round

    Wow! I'm starting my own, because for my soccer shinguards we use electrical tape to hold them up. Any tips on how to make it circular?

    It is all tape, I started just balling a little piece and then wrapping tape. It is a couple thousand rolls so far.
