I have read that the balls can break easily (pun intended). If you have already bought the ball end strings you should use them with the balls on. When/if they break off, just learn how to tie the knot and reattach them. It isn't that hard, and there are a ton of youtube videos on the subject:

Yeah, I find it's purely cosmetic in most cases. But damn, it looks good!

thanks guyz. in the end i measured them to see if i can snip the ball ends off(for the first 3 nylon strings it was basically a knot with a rubber end on it) and checked a few tutorials on how to tie them. easy enough and looks good
