Default Re: My TT17" popped
Sempertex makes a very strong 18 inch balloon with a great, long neck. Balloons-united just started carrying them and you can see photos on their site. I like the balloon shape, but the colors are not great IMHO. They also inflate very hard the first time, although you can easily get multiple inflations and a somewhat softer balloon. I think they will be good for making clusters (a future challenge for myself).

That said, there is something about a TT 17" that is hard to beat, despite all the potential problems. With multiple inflations they get huge, they feel good, and the colors are great. I also find that different colors inflate differently, which I enjoy as a challenge.

The bottom line is that we looners are lucky to have choices. Just have fun.

Yup! LoonerPlanet is right about choices. Thanks for the tip on Sempertex. I think they even have a distributor up here in Canada. I'll give them a try.

To be honest you already said multiple times you didn't like them and that's ok but at some point it starts to be annoying. Learn to store them correctly or accept that you bought already old ones and stop complaining on every single tuftex thread on this forum please.

BSA 17” are also wicked strong. I’m not the best generally at necking balloons, but I can neck these every time.

Oh ok

Anyway, I looked BSA 17", they look very huge! This is exciting! So do u recommend to a non-popper? Are they hard to inflate at the first time? I usually love when they are soft, example Tuftex and Unique, but these last one are a risk for a non-popper unluckily.

They can be very good for non-poppers, as I’ve found them incredibly resilient. Like, I had one fully necked, and I came back later and added more air to it. They’re designed for outdoor use, and it shows.

Unfortunately, they’re not very soft upon first inflation, and it takes a little bit of time to break one in. I appreciate that they seem tough to destroy, but sometimes it feels too tough, so it’s not as fun as a Tuftex.

I get a kick out of getting it as big as I dare, then adding more air as time progresses. I don’t enjoy how it feels as much as a Qualatex or Tuftex.

They are a little difficult. They’re also quite round, though there’s enough pressure and the necks are long enough to overinflate all the way without much trouble.

Repeated inflations definitely help them get a bit softer and bigger. I like to inflate one reasonably large and bounce on it to stretch the bulb and the neck. That makes it easy to add more air.

I prefer Tuftex to BSA, but BSA seem a little more reliable.

It is as annoying as listening to you. Because you even can't read what I have stated.

If the baloons even can't stand shipping and standard shelf life in shops, then they simply ain't any good! I, as a customer, do not give rats ass how old they are. I have simply received junk two times from two shops. Tried both 17 and 14 inch. I, as a customer care only to receive a quality product, which have not happened.

You shall learn to respect other opinions. I can post as many times that I hate them as you can as many times post you love them.

As long as people will not learn to not create multiple topics with the same content, I will post my opinions in every one of them - same as you will post how you love them.

Coupl'a things.

1. Who are you to dictate what others post? "will not learn to". No.
2. You've been hostile and combative from your very first post in this thread. No one cares that you're posting your opinions, but it becomes an issue when you're being a jerk.
