A Rubber Band Ball That Weighs How Much?!

Will Love has been working for years to break the world record for the largest rubber band ball. We caught up with him to see how the progress is going!

How much does the rubber band ball currently weigh?
It currently weighs 300 pounds! I love watching it grow.

How much time do you spend working on it each day?
The chain weighs about 25 pounds. As the rubber band ball has gotten bigger, I’ve had to wrap a chain of rubber bands around it.

How much time do you spend working on it each day? 
It depends on the day, but I typically spend about an hour each day.

Does it still fit inside your house?
No, it doesn’t still fit in the house because it’s too wide for the door. Check out the latest picture below.

We have been providing Will with Alliance rubber bands because he thinks it’s important for the record to not only be in America but for the ball to be made with American-made rubber bands. We couldn’t agree more! We’re proud to say that our rubber bands are made in the USA!

Stay tuned for more updates as Will attempts to break the record for the world’s largest rubber band ball.
