Default What the biggest balloon you've ever played with?
Currently I've got a couple of 8 foot Cloudbursters, but this got me thinking- what are the biggest balloons you can get (other than weather balloons).... and then I thought.... what have other folks got in their own collections?

2 2.4 meter climb in balloons from Gummiwerk.
I putted one balloon inside the other and climbed into them leg first and pulled the neck of them up to my stomach. When I inflated them with an elektric pump, the neck of the balloons around my stomach pulled me upwards and I was able to be lifted all the way up to the cieling of my room hanging in the neck of the balloon.
Unfortunally I donīt have them enymore and they where realy expencive.

The biggest balloons I've have played with are GL1200's and 36 inch balloons. Both of them great rides. On the GL 1200's depending on how they pop. You may get a pop and a deflation ride out of it as it splits in half.

My biggest is a GL1200. Biggest inflated by mouth are some Q24s, before I got a pump

The biggest balloon I play(ed) with is/was a Q24.

I didn't try bigger balloons yet, on the one hand because it would be a bit difficult in the small room where I loon, on the other hand I don't really like the shape of 36" or bigger balloons.
Usually they are round and don't get a proper neck.
In my eyes a balloon MUST have a pear-shape and a neck.

But for the future I plan to give a try to GL500 and Tuftex 36".
