Hand Tied

What is the most secure way to quickly tie a water balloon (and it stayed tied for an hour or so)?

I had a party the other day and filled balloons ahead of time. BUT it took too long to tie each. We could not do as many as we wanted too. I have thought of twist ties but worry a tie on one would puncture another balloon as we wish to store them as much as an hour ahead for a balloon fight. I fear rubber bands would be almost as much trouble as hand tying as it is difficult to get rubber bands tight enough.
If you have experience please state what when and where. If you are offering an unsupported theory... I may still try it but please state this first so I will know whether to try it out first or not. This is for a July fourth water balloon fight. (Not dropping from a raise position) We are using the smaller "grenade" type balloons

hello friend!

use a non-flexible thread. tie a simple knot first. roll the thread at the balloon stout for 3 times. then again tie a knot. again roll it for 3 times and then tie two knots. trust me! this would work! it wont leak a bit even if u leave it for a night!!!
happy fighting!!
