We purchase our balloons from either Scientific Sales or kaymont. Kaymont is usually a bit cheaper, but it seems to vary year to year.

We typically purchase balloons of the following weight

350g ($20)

1200g ($60)

2000g ($60)

3000g ($285)

 

The manufacturer data is below for sounding (large) balloons (according to www.scientificsales.com)
