Apart from the magnet test - which I’ll do tomorrow - given that the ball bearings and rods are the same diameter, would you recommend one over the other? (I’m assuming that being “shorter” and having less magnetizable mass, the bearings will keep a magnetic field for less time than the rods).
The bearings will discharge faster, the rods will probably have a bit stronger magnetic field. It's a trade off.
