Default Who makes the best round ball mold?

I've been reading a lot of good reviews on the Jeff Tanner mold but I'd like to buy the "best". Any recommendations?

EDIT: Custom mold.

A Lee double cavity, if lubed and cared for will make near perfect round balls.

Are both of those custom size-able?

Check the Lee site, they list the sizes they make. I have a .31 for the kids .32 squirrel gun (you won't find those at Walmart) and a .440 for my .45 Kentucky.
