A weather balloon. Those were the days.

I'd bought some large 3foot rounds from a balloon shop whilst I was travelling around Switzerland back in 2012... Not sure who actually made them though as they were all indiviually sealed up in hanger packs with the stores logo on the card, but they weren't exactly the most 'friendly' of loons I've ever bought.

Firstly we had one we'd left inflated burst during the middle of the night whilst in our hotel room, which didn't go down too well with the other guests.
Then once I'd got back home I was inflating another one on my electric inflator one morning- I turned my back for just a split second and this thing burst with such a ferocious echoing explosion of a bang- my ears were ringing for hours afterwards. Nowere near its 3 ft 'quoted' size either, and the shards ended up absolutely everywhere.... No big pieces left to pick up- just thousands of these grain of rice sized shards spread all over the room, the furniture, on tops of shelves... I mean this thing ended up everywhere!.....

We were still finding tiny bits of it months and months afterwards!
They were either quite a brittle, or tough formulation of latex, or possibly very old stock, but god knows what the next door neighbours thought but I was relieved I wasn't say- actually riding it at the time it popped. I'd of imagined it could have been quite painful!

96" tuf-tex, took some patience, but worth the effort.

Talking Re: What's the loudest and biggest balloon you've blown to pop?
Largest one i have popped was a 36inch (by accident of course) i was lying on top of it blowing into while watching a boring film. burst suddenly but thankfully i fell onto my bed so only thing i had to deal with was with the shock of it popping lol, but that was last year

In 1995 I bought a bag of balloons in London. Later I realized that those were decoration balloons so it was really hard to B2O them and those were very loud.

A couple of years later I got a McDonalds balloon in Munich. I deflated it and brought it home and later I B2P-ped it. It was very large and very loud.

Largest would be a 36" Qualatex somebody special got for me, that one was fun! But loudest had to be an 11" Qualatex clear, I thought the whole block would've heard that one.

Yeah I gotta agree with you. I've P2P'ed a couple of them as well. I'd twice inflate them before popping them. Huge size, ton's of shards, and huge huge sound. It was beautiful for sure. I've also B2P'd one Q24, loud as hell, but hard as hell to pop. I have huge sausage hands, so I can never keep hold of the nozzle. It pretty awesome.

Like the others it was a 96Inch balloon. It took me 6 hours with frequent breaks. Normally BTP 36 Balloons. I got some 36in Betallic. They remind me of the old 40 inch round I love to blow to pop

Definitely q24. Got absolutely huge, and went with a bang unlike anything I've heard from a balloon!
Just ordered some 30 q24s now - can't wait to hear that beloved bang again
