> 1200 grams $110.00Last summer, I paid about $50-55 for 1200g balloons and $75 for 1500g from Kaymont. I believe on my order of four that shipping was $10 or $15.

If you get the guy who normally handles orders, you're OK. I've had two instances where I've left the info with whoever picked up the phone and those were lost. But that was over three years ago.
My experience with Kaysams (the kind with the ring above the neck) has been more varied. We flew some 3-4 years ago and had a good experience, but on my last order from them I think I got a lower-quality batch and got less altitude than expected.
