This project was 2 months in development. For 2 weeks I drew up the plans and found the materials, and then in August Gunter (Splugen on YoYoSkills.com) and I found time to build it. Then, for 6 weeks we looked for a location to film the throw. One day it dawned on me that the Worlds Largest Handheld Yo-Yo would feel right at home next to Tom Kuhn’s Worlds Largest Wood Yo-Yo at the National Yo-Yo Museum at Bird in Hand in Chico California. While I was there, I saw that the Parking Garage had top level access and so it was decided. In the middle of YoYo Club, My experiment was itching to be dropped.
Yes, I know that it is not perfect, but it was all for the pure joy of yo-yo fun. I could not have asked for a better time.
And also Yes, I realize that there is currently no “Largest Handheld Yo-Yo” world record but I don’t care, I am claiming it so… THERE IS NOW!
