Pokeball Crafter Feature - Barely does anything?

Poké Ball Crafter
Prerequisites: Basic Balls, Poké Ball Repair, Expert
Technology
Static
Effect: You may craft Dusk, Dive, Heal, Luxury, Net,
Nest, Quick, Repeat, or Timer Balls for $ 700. Requires
access to a Poké Ball Tool Box.


So each kind of ball this feature allows you to make only costs 100 more than the price it takes to craft here. This is a much smaller benefit than pretty much all other crafting features and edges. Does anyone know why? Am I missing something?

It also gives you free access to them and the ability to craft them away from towns. It's value is largely narrative and based on your settings access otherwise. Very useful in an apocalypse based game with limited vendors, not so much if your game takes place in a mall.

Also, those are pokeballs that are usually assumed to be kind of a specialty item that aren't going to be found in every mart anyway, and even if a mart does stock one thy probably on't have all of them

I guess it just strikes me as very odd and frustrating because every OTHER crafting skill gives a 50% discount or better, but this one is the hardest to get, and gives the weakest benefit. I get where you're coming from, but why is this the ONLY crafting edge or feature that's balanced that way?

This may be an odd question, where is the feature/edge at in the game materials?

My guess would be that the other Crafting Features are a bit more specific to who uses it. Everyone uses Pokeballs, so its pretty much always useful.
