Vintage Semi-Transparent Blue Duncan Imperial Yo-Yo Toy

Using a Duncan Imperial plastic yo-yo with an approximate 88 cm nylon string, Bussey did his loop-the-loops at the YMCA in Waco, Texas. Bussey learned to yo-yo when he was growing up in Forth Worth, Texas. "I entered all the contests the yo-yo companies sponsored and learned to do the loop-to-loops because that was always the tiebreaker," he said.





After buying a copy of the Guinness Book of World Records for his children, a book he was unfamiliar with until then, Bussey knew he could get his name listed in the book. " I was sure I could break the old record," he said.


Yo-yoing for more than three hours was no problem. "It's not hard work. You just stand there and the yo-yo. I even chatted with the witnesses," he said. A couple of pieces of scrap leather wound around his fingers kept the string from cutting into his skin.
