Blowing up the balloon was already very difficult, so I did not dare to blow through.

The balloon feels more exciting when I am sitting on it.

I am less satisfied with the Belbal 14 inch balloons.

I overinflated the balloon I little bit, which is less then maximum if I look at photo's and video's at youtube.

I bounced gently on the balloon. Then I bounced a little harder, the neck looks beautiful. But by that time it pops. Now I'm afraid to bounce the other Belbal balloons. Afraid to pop them too.

I did the same on qualatex balloon, which survived it. So I try to enjoy bouncing my qualatex balloons and don't think too much about the risk of popping it and enjoy the great feeling.

The Belbal balloons feels harder than the qualatex balloons, which feels less comfortable.

Couldnt agree more, love Q16s ! They are very strong and durable but difficult to neck/tie once its reached their rated size. Belbal 14s are good too but I prefer Q16 anytime !

Has anyone played with 18 inch Betallic, which is also Sempertex, balloons? Just got my first batch.

Positives: They are really strong balloon with a long, inflatable neck. Thick latex, more like the 24" and 36" Belbals. They come in a bag of 25, which I prefer.

Negatives: Not a huge color palette; for example, no crystal orange or magenta. Also, I can't find a mixed bag of crystals; you have to buy 25 of one color. They are also difficult to find. I ordered them from an online shop. No imprints that I have seen.

Possible negative or positive: They inflate hard...very hard...on first inflation. I'm working through multiple inflations to see if they get bigger and softer. Right now, I say softer but not as huge as I hoped. I'll keep going.

What I really like about them is that they have a real neck. After years of having Qtex as my "go to" balloon, I've grown tired of the lack of a real neck on either the 16 or 36 inch. Love the colors and quality of Qtex, but it is time for me to spread my hard earned cash elsewhere.

No I can't recall ever trying anything from Betallic before, at least I don't think. But the 18 inch does sound interesting as my go to balloon size is usually between 16" and 24 ". I may have to look into this , not that I need any more balloons lol, but I guess you can never have enough.

MichaelLoona: Brody's balloons in the Chicago area carries Betallic and they are good at online ordering.

Because of the long neck, I think they would be good to build large clusters. (Something to try in the future.)
