Smoothly Wrapped Shells

Why are Chinese made shells so rough when Japanese shells are wrapped smoothly? What are the techniques into doing this?

Because the Chinese produce 100 for every 1 the Japanese make. Quantity over quality!

I read somewhere that the Japanese hand paste and burnish the outside layer to achieve the best appearance. The Chinese shells I am most familiar with are machine taped with the poles exposed and filled with glue.

Machine tape or expediently hand pasted shells don't always look pretty There's nothing stopping you from hand pasting a final layer however for asthetics. I do this all the time. All my ball shells have an odd number of layers for a reason. :)
