Smile Re: Biggest Balloon
The biggest balloon in my collection right now is th Gl 1200. I take it whit me out to a local lake and inflate it to obout half itīs size. Then I step ower the middle part of it and wade slowly out into the water. As the water gets deeper the part I sit on gets almost defflated and both ends inflate more. It gives me a good ballance and Iīm able to float whit my legs dangling on each side of the balloon. Itīs realy nice and soft to sit on and quite wide. I love the feeling of being lifted by balloons and since helium is so expensive this is a good supstitute.

I have 4 times GL1200 and have some Cattex 59" balloons and a 71" balloon. Awesome balloons. Maybe I buy some more this week.

I have some GL500's and Unique 36's right now, as well as like 15 worker balloons. I've had some GL700's a GL900 egg shaped in the past. But I've only recently been into bigger balloons. I think I'm gonna stock up on some. Recommendations anyone?

GL1200s, it's the next logical step.

Biggest one I've had was a 96" Tuf-Tex. Sadly, I'd never had room to fully inflate it so I could only get it up about halfway and then play with it, so the lower half became very weak. The chance I finally had to try to inflate it all the way to rated size I noticed that the lower half of the balloon was inflating way too big without the top half following. I burst at about half its rated size. :\

Granted, I had it for a couple of years at that point, but still.

I still have an old Malaysian 63" but I think I may just keep that stored away since they don't make them any more. I have two GL1200s and a Cattex 55" though.

Cool, thanks. I think I'll try to get a few. How about the larger Cattex balloons? Are they any good or softer? I tended to stay away from larger balloons for a while bc the one's I tried got so hard when they were filled, so they were no fun to ride or sit on. I know this sounds like a silly question, but since I'm new to big balloons "how" do you play with them compared to like the 16 and 17"balloons that I am used to?

If you underinflate the large Cattex balloons you will have a very nice, soft and huge latex airpillow . It is like a bounce house but than of latex.
