People are suggesting you learn the snap start. This is a wonderful skill to have but realize that it is really difficult. So try not to get discouraged.
I have 2 bits of advice. First, when I was at exactly the place you are at now (just over a year ago) I tried to start every practice session with a forward throw and a bind 10 times. Then 10 breakaway throws to a trapeze, and then a bind. Every single time I picked up the yoyo I’d do these 20 throws. Within a few days I was binding consistently. As I started learning the basic mounts I’d do 10 of those at the start of every session. So my warm up would be something like :
10 forward throws (make sure they’re straight and non-vibey) and bind.
10 split bottom mounts. Dismount and bind.
10 breakaway throws to a trapeze. Dismount and bind.
10 1 1/2 mounts. Dismount and bind.
10 double or nothing. Dismount and bind.
Forcing myself to practice the fundamentals every time I started to practice really helped. It only took a couple of weeks for it all to start coming together.
Then I just started at the beginning of the “Learn” section of this website and started going through all the tricks. If one of them it too difficult don’t beat yourself up. Just move on for now and come back to it. For example, I can do the Master level tricks “And Whut” and “White Buddha” but I can’t do the advanced trick “Leg Wrap Trap”. No biggie. I’ll get it eventually.
Isn’t that Magic yoyo cool? I don’t have an N8 in my collection. I love my N12 Shark though.
EDIT: Hey, one more thought on the bind. I’ll use the forward throw as an example.
Throw your forward throw.
Do the reverse mount bottom, the one you need to do to bind the yoyo.
The string is now looped over your non throw hand. Bring that hand towards your body so there’s now a V between the string from your throw hand and the loop in your non-throw hand. Your NTH should be nearer your body than the TH string.
Pinch that loop with your NTH.
2 things are going to happen at once.
1: Gently lift your throw hand
2: While maintaining that pinch lower the NTH while guiding the loop into the yoyo.
That thing will bind. It really will. Pretty soon all those steps will become one fluid movement and you won’t even notice it.
