Default best 11"-12" balloon brand
I am looking for a brand of 11-12" balloons that can reliably reach big neck without popping, i tried sempertex 12" but they were pretty unreliable - meaning many of them popped even without fully or even partially inflated neck. Does anyone have any experience with other brands like belbal 12" qualatex 11" or unique 12" or any other and is willing to share?
many thanks

Belbal 12" has been reliable for me, they get massive necks as well so go for it.

Belbal 12" get good necks, but I don't know how long they "last" being overinflated with full neck.
Belbal 14" sometimes pop unexpectedly in this stadium.

Kalisian 12" get good necks too, not to hard to b2p, but I also don't know how durable they are when overinflated.

Bbased on Tuftex's larger sizes, I'd say their 12" balloons could be worth a try, too.

12" Unique have been good in my experience. Went through a lot of them while they sold them in stores here. Inflated a whole bag of 100 in an evening one time and had 2 or 3 pop prematurely during inflation. I imagine a few more would've gone if I tried overinflating all of them, but they usually got a good neck without popping.

12 inch uniques are good balloons. They used to be one of my go to balloons. Lots of experience with the crystal colours and could easily overinflate with nice necks. They have a softer feel than belbal, with the latex retaining some give even at full inflation. The only reason I stopped using u12's was when I discovered tuftex 14s...but they dont make those any longer so might have to go back to u12's

The TT 14’s are indeed awesome! Everts 14” are great if you can get your hands on them. Both have a great shape and yield long necks.

If and when I purchase balloons of this size it's almost only Qualatex or Sempertex. Never have I had many problems with quality.

Unique 12's are fun, and almost always neck without popping, but are inconsistent, which is what I like. Some get huge and really tight, others pop right away.

Qualatex are what you want. Every balloon pops at exactly the same size and pressure.
