Balloon boy uk. As the post states, they weren't 36" they were 11" so only blown up about half way. The shop was one of a chain of party shops but probably franchised. The next time I was able to get to that town the shop had closed down. I would say though the packet I bought wasn't reduced in price or anything like that or any indication that the shop was closing down. I put the whole episode down to experience.

Ah, my apologies for misreading your post. It sounds like the balloons were an old batch then, and the shop was just getting shot of their stock, to anyone willing to pay for them.

Like you say, put it down to experience. But for future reference, if you do buy Qualatex balloons, and they aren't up to the right standards, do contact their Customer Services teams, and they will help you out. They don't want people to be unsatisfied with their products, and nor would I, and they will replace faulty products, if you contact them and say what's happened. I love Qualatex balloons myself, so I hope this experience hasn't put you off them completely.

Q36 is my favourite balloon, as they are the biggest size available to sell in Brazil with a reasonable price. They are very strong and support my weight (98Kg) when riding. I love how strong they are in the first inflation.

I have found that necks are longer on the 36 than they used to be.
At first they are very rigid, but with repeated inflations and some heat treatment they do soften up and get quite stretchy.
Some serious prestretching on the neck does make it possible to inflate.
For best riding results, blow tight, then let out some air for a bit of bounce.

it's huge, i wouldn't dare to take it, seems would to burst at the minimal touch. Anyway it's a sexy and at the same time weird balloon.

Good morning blow2popper, a small off-topic: your videos help me a lot to understand how long I may dare to inflate a balloon. Keep it up.
