Topic: 646q vs 660b link-o-loon
Message: Posted by: R2D2 (Sep 21, 2016 09:29AM)
I haven't worked much with 646's. I want to start practicing some designs that uses 646's but I wanted to get the Betallic version.

Then I noticed that Betallic doesn't have 646's; it has 660b link-o-loons. Is there any *disadvantage* to using a 660b in place of a 646q?

(I can think of two advantages: longer and it has the material on the end so you can connect to another balloon. But I won't need those features.)

Regardless of which balloon you choose, I would stick to the same balloon per color. For example, you don't want to use Qualatex red 160, 250, 350, and then Betallic red 660. The reds won't match. But if you used Qualatex for everything except you like the Betallic red better than you could use B for the entire red line, but Q for all of your other balloons.

That's the only disadvantage I can think of.

Thanks, Karen. I certainly agree.

I'm trying to use Betallic as much as possible, so I think 660b is the way to go.
