Question Where to start?
I think I was into balloons first IDK. But balloons and beach balls are my thing. When I was younger it's just whatever I could get. Now I'm older and it's pretty much always beach balls.

I want to try balloons more again. Love the 12s I'm open to a little bigger like a 17 but the ones from stores suck. What brand and size and all are good. I want the pop sometimes but I want to earn it so like crappy balloons with the thin spots on them I don't like. What are some good quality ones I'll have a good time using?

Unique 16” are generally good quality, but they’re not indestructible. I see people get some good bounces out of them before popping, especially when they’re not overinflated. Maybe those would be to your liking?

Tuf-Tex 17” will put up even more of a fight that you’ll have to earn. Tuf-Tex are strong enough that nonpoppers can feel safe, and they’ll really make you work to pop them.

I couldn't find unique 16s. Tuftex sounds good but maybe a bit too good. I think tonight I'm going to order unique 12s just to check those out though

Pioneer is the company that makes Qualatex. I find their 16 inchers to be tough to inflate and a bit tight for me, but the 36" balloons they make are a definite recommend. While expensive, they get huge and take a serious pounding.

There are balloons under that name that look a lot like BSA balloons I have had before. BSA is a reliable brand.
