Default Best durable balloons for bouncing?
Hey non-poppers!

I'd love to hear of your favourite balloons for bouncing and riding! I love larger ones and would love to hear opinions on your favourite brands, shapes, sizes etc.

I'm planning on making a big order soon!

Also, does colour make a difference in durability?

Im female btw, so donut balloons won't really help me haha
Thanks

A huge favourite of mine is cattex 55”.

These are super tough and if under inflated to around 40” almost indestructible. (Almost)
They are a paddle shaped balloon. But they do inflate fairly round.

Not the cheapest balloons, but being a non popper they last ages for me.

My favorite is Olympic 45" incredibly squishy at rated size and can be over inflated to about 75".
They're a paddle shape as are most balloons of this size.
The neck of the balloon is short and a bit larger than most 36" but still small enough to fit onto a standard
electric air pump nozzle.
The only real problem with them is unless you live in Russia they can get really expensive fast.

Been thinking about giving the Olympic 45 a try.
Cattex is also rather costly here in aus.

Try the bobo balloons they are very soft and smooth and hold up great

I like the Cattex 72" very underinflated to about 36-40" otherwise it gets too big to bounce on. My favorites for bouncing are latex bladders. Custom 6L bladder from Softex India.
It is about 36-40" and is heavy rubber at 100 to 110 grams - like a gigantic punch balloon. The heavy rubber allows you to put your full weight on it while you bounce up and down. I have a fresh batch of 50 pieces from earlier this year.

The GL-series is an obvious mention. Personally I prefer the GL700. The 500 is a bit to small and the 1200 is too big for me. I suppose I mostly just sit or lie on them, rather tahn bouncing.
Tuf-Tex 24" and 36" are also great. They get really soft after the first inflation.
I also want to mention the 24" Belbal. Only had two of them, but they've been great.
For anything bigger, Cattex is probably your best bet. I've only tried one bigger than 36" (a 45" I think). Their 32" longnecks are also cool if you enjoy huge necks.
Honorable mention to the 18" Qualatex "stuffer" balloons. While relatively small in this setting, they're really nice to straddle and play with.

I had bad experience with stuffer q18. It popped earlier than I expected. Im not even humping it. Huhu

If one can navigate the wait for the package, which can be a long time and not for the faint-of-heart, the GEMAR balloons from Russis are wonderful! Far more than ample to take my bouncing weight (around 80kg/170 pounds) and they're SOFT - this includes both the 19-inch, and the punchballs which are 18-inch.


They seem to be readily available on ebay...

There's been a lot of thefts of helium-filled balloons recently. More so than in the past, so they're going up. I think inflation is to blame.
