HowlingOwl, that Japanese ball mold is just a very expensive aliminum die that you heat in water, you put a block of ice into it and it melts it into the ball shape. They supply you with a mold to make the blocks but if the ice is cloudy when it goes into the die, it will make a cloudy ball. I suspect they boil the water before they freeze the block or something. I'm sure I have tried boiling water first but can't remember if it makes clear ice.
