Has anyone on here ever tried those "duck" shape balloons? And how hard are they to inflate?

Tuftex & Qualatex 24" - expensive though and a cheap & fun alternative is the Greek-made Swan 24" which can be easily found on Ebay:

Try them, they're fun!

The previously mentioned Belbal 14" are also very good for their size and can be pushed far beyond their limits and take repeat inflations very well. I've recently tried some 35" Cattex and 36" Tuftex - outstanding! The Globos 26" is another good one - not much neck but worth the effort of blowing since they always go way bigger - near 30" usually.

Brand? Any.... Open to suggestions I love smoooooth and silky ones. Size? 48" or 60" would LOVE to have a weather balloon. Colour? Red white and blue... I am patriotic after all

15" punch balloons made by Unique. I got one inflated to 21" the other day, and rode it (really hard) without popping it. (Will be talking more in another thread)
I would really like to try a big white GL500 zeppelin.

Although balloons aren't my 'main' thing, I do occasionally indulge. I would say for me it's less about size and more about the shape and quality.

I appreciate the classic balloon shape with a big neck and the feeling of a decent quality quality balloon tightly inflated. Q16s are probably my favourite so far but I think only because I've been able to buy them locally.

The Belbal 14s look awesome, gonna have to get some of them next.
