I'm curious to see what kind of effects that people have made in a cylinder shell. like what are the possibilities for shell burst and break patterns compared to a ball shell, can some of the same effects be replicated in a cylinder shell?

I suggest spending some time watching Italian and Maltese shells on youtube. Then watch some Japanese shells. That will give you a good idea of what respective mastery of cylinder and ball shells looks like.

Still not really sure what you're asking.
I don't build ball shells but you can see some cylinders I built here (others on my channel as well). https://youtube.com/...LcQbJ1pNbovS1VX

Ball shells are necessary when the art demands spherical symmetry in the break, cylinder shells are good for putting a lot of stars in the sky. Round shells need hemis, cylinders need one tool per size and lots of brown paper and glue and string.
