Default Re: TufTex balloons... The new ones SUCKS
I just received some. all were from middle 2022. purple crystal felt like the old ones....crystal red and crystal clear were much smaller and stiffer. Kalisan 18" balloons have been much better for me as well as bsa 17" (though the bsa do not come in crystal colors anymore )

I was looking around to see if there are in complaints about the new TufTex and found this. It seems they bought new formers from China. The parent company of TufTex is Goodlevel Enterprises LLC. Here is a list of some of what they have imported in from China. I wonder if the new formers are a tad smaller.

Do the new purple ones get as big as the old ones? The purple ones I have will pop if I go too much past 16 1/2". When I placed my order I could not find any clear ones in stock. Can you post the dates of the balloons you have?

Have you tried the Q19? They feel similar to the Q16, only bigger.

There is no Qualatex 19", maybe he means the 18" stuffer balloons? but they only exist in metallic (sold as 16") and crystal clear

Yes, sadly many brands just rebrand at least some of their catalogue. Pretty sure a lot of the Cattex catalogue is actually from Gemar (like the 19" balloons), at least the non paddle balloons.
And Belbal itself is not producing in belgium anymore as far as I know, but in poland. So they should rename themselves to Polbal.
