Smile Qualatex 24 on ebay
I don’t generally buy balloons much bigger than 16-20”, but I saw qualatex 24 on eBay for those who want them. FYI. good luck!

Good find! I've been buying them elsewhere for a few months now but it's good to know that there are backups.

only perks buying from ebay is we dont know how long the balloon has been kept, whether its stored properly, etc.

Mine were bought from 'bargain balloons' when they still carried them.

Good point, I have two bags of Onyx Black Q24s left, that I bought about three years ago, but they are useless by now, they suffer from windowing and pop before reaching half size inflation. I really miss those huge onyx black babies.

Also, sometimes people just mislabel stuff. Like the time I bought a bunch of purple Q24s, only to open the package and see a lot of fluted balloons fall out...

As far as dates, though, I have on a couple occasions asked a seller to reply with the date code. With Q24s if they are less than about 18 months old you'd really need to louse up the storage to ruin them.

I found some listings for Q24s but im not sure if they are worth the risk of getting balloons that dont work

At this point I've just accepted that any Q24s are probably either mislabeled (intentionally or not) or too degraded to be any good. I've got 10 or so of my own left in a box that I keep in a cool, dry closet which seem to be lasting fine, but I doubt I'll get more unless Qualatex starts producing them again.

The Cattex 32" longneck mostly fills the same role for me anyways - great for riding and giant necks.
