Mike at Tuggy's Hardware in Noe Valley is going for the Guinness World Record for the largest rubber band ball. Floridian Joel Waul holds the current record with a rubber-band ball that weighed 9,400 pounds. It took Waul six years and 730,000 rubber bands to make his prize-winner. Mike is looking for rubber bands. Rubberta currently weighs about 60lbs.


  1. that is so strange. when i lived there someone was making a rubber band ball too. but i think they were in the mission and this was about 10 years ago. i would bring them rubberbands, but i never heard if they broke a record.

    could it be the same person?

  2. Could be the same person, but Mike is a Noe Valley native. I'll inquire...
    hope you are well
