Just bought myself a Filbert pump as I thought it would give me an edge on speed and appearing professional. I can't mouth inflate for the life of me and find the hand pump a bit slow at times so a Filbert seemed like the ideal solution. So far it has been great. I've just been practising with it at home so far but it seems to give the advantages I was looking for. The downside appears to be that balloons might explode more often as the strain is greater all at once, (or my balloons are old). I hope to use it at a gig next week so I'll let you know how it performs under pressure, (lol).

I'm sure it will work great.

My Filbert Pump is on the road now - after a week of ordering it.
I have a Mini Mac Light (I'm totally satisfied with), but a Filbert is a Filbert...

I have the honor to inform all of you that there is a new member in our family.

He is 84 centimeters (33 inches) long and his weight is 1,14 kilos (2,5 pounds).
His name is Filbert. Filbert Pump.

Within two weeks arrived from the USA to Hungary after ordering it.
I think, the service is perfect now at Filbert Productions.

Yeah, I have customised mine with some stickers from the 100yen store, ($store I guess) of Stitch and some spaceships etc. (pity I'm rubbish at actually twisting a Stitch figure). I was also lucky to find my old tripod carry strap which fits perfectly to make it a handsfree tote. It's made by OP/TECH USA so I guess it would be quite a few dollars to buy.

As I was saying to JillyBilly on another thread, another advantage of a floor pump is that those of us who are unable to inflate by mouth can curl a balloon round our fingers for those perfect curly twister designs.
Hoping to twist again at the Highland Games in Makuhari near CHiba City on the 2nd of October. If anyone is in TOkyo and looking for a fun day out, it should be great. I'll post pics if it all goes well.

I have a Filbert, and a red Qualitex pump, and a couple of the 160 pumps and just ordered a Pumponator.  I even have an old PVC pump in my garage that I bought  from Raph Dewey back in 1988!
