To answere the question, other materials are expensive, so they use balsa. It is maluable and can do the job. The next step up would be a gel deoderant container. The next step up which you are looking for is probably plexyglass constructed into a clip. This would be sort of dificult, but possible. Good luck!

I have also used a different type of casing for my own spring-fed clips; described in:4Bmod and re-visited in my mod for the ERTL-FS1010 shotgun.
Carrtoon also came up with an interesting, much different air pressure-fed magazine for his 3B.
There are lots of possiblities, depending on the type of blaster, ammo and materials you have handy.

You can make clips out of 1/16th" or 1/8th" polycarbonate for extremely low prices. If you want cheaper than balsa wood you simply have to do some legwork and find a plastics shop near you that sells their offcuts. My nearest source sells plastic for $1 per pound.
Don't use "plexiglass" for your clips. Acrylic, acrylite, lucite, and many other are too brittle to be used in a nerf gun. Polycarbonate, polyester, polyethylene, and ABS on the other hand are pretty friendly materials to work with and are far more durable.
