Default Re: Crystal, pastel, pearl or metallics?
Crystals are my first choice. I also love pastels. Like others, I used to avoid metallics and pearls because they never inflated to their rated size and are too hard. I've also had bad experiences with store bought metallics.

However, if you get good quality metallics and pearls, and inflate them several times they get much bigger and softer. The 16" Qtex pearls are particularly interesting. They are a different shape than the the other 16" Qtex; more like their 18" with a wide nozzle. They also inflate larger than the other 16" types. Balloons-united sells a pearl Qtex 16" with an imprint that is worth a try.
