I own the Badger mixer and it's exceptional.  Prior to that, I mixed the bottle with a toothpick.

Ball bearings are great to have in the bottle when you shake them once in a while, but they're not a substitute for mixing the paint completely just before use.

I would think glass beads to be better if you'd want to go that way.
Metal beads could rust over time if they weren't stainless.

I made my own mixer using an old electric toothbrush and some music wire, but will probably get a proper deal at some point.

I'd also recommend Tamiya's metal stirring sticks. Lots of other uses for those other than just stirring paint.

Glad others have found success with badger primers they're all I use now. The only time I've had an issue was recently light blocking my clear enterprise D kit took several coats. Not sure if it was my technique or what.

Oh, I wouldn't use it for light blocking.  It's nice and thick, but water based paints tend not to be very opaque.  At that point, I'd use an enamel or something.

This I learned the hardest of ways! 4 heavy coats later and I can finally start to lay down a base coat  ;)

Tulip paint.
