Hey Guys,

I've got a big Church event coming up soon and decided to get a filbert pump to speed things up a bit. I haven't figured out a way to compare the same amount of air that the Qualatex Red Pump puts in per stroke. It's probably a bad habit, but I know how many strokes to put in the balloon per animal, I have never paid attention to the amount of tail, usually because I'm talking too much, LOL. I thought about marking the Filbert's center tube with a Sharpie showing the comparable amounts of strokes to the red pump. Any ideas beside trial and error?

Normally, one full stroke on a Filbert will fully inflate a 260q...if that helps?

I had the same problem when I went to the minimac from a hand pump. I do feel you will have to get use to how much tail is left and I would say most of the time a hands width of tail is going to be fine.

once your able to convert it will be much faster. put the balloon on the pump grab the space you need for tail and bam perfect measurement

sorry I wasn't more help
