Oct 7, 2010: Bada YoYo

Bada YoYo... big bada YoYo.
A dude called Dr. Yo-Yo, has built what he claims to be the worlds largest hand held YoYo, at 35 inches.



Quote:
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!
Why Bada YoYo? 'Cause it ain't Gooda YoYo.

2 Months in development?! It's two kiddie pools stuck together.

Looks like something Kramerica would come up with. Watch out for the giant ball of oil!

The guy had to save up for a couple of months so he could afford to buy two pools.

That is a major yoyo FAIL. His skilz are not mad, they are not even perturbed.



Shawnee123  Thursday Oct 7 11:25 AM

Yo yo yo and a bottle of dum.

x2. A poorly constructed non-functional yo-yo does not deserve a 5 minute youtube video.

Well xoxoxBruce, there goes my bragging rights. I grew up in
Chico, CA went into the military, then went back to attend CSU, Chico for my BSEE degree. Really, Chico State is a great school, I don't know anything about this YoYo stuff, really! Chico State had bragging rights in (I think around '69) when Playboy magazine listed it as the number 1 party school. The name stuck, apparently.
