Cross your hands farther.

Try using more string in your off hand… Becareful, too much will make it knot up

First of all, which yo-yo are you using for offstring? Sometimes, you’ll need to wrap the string around the axle once before actually binding the yo-yo.

i don’t have many yoyo’s and am just a beginner so i have my velocity and am using my brother’s Journey for Offstring

Make sure it’s fully tightened. Also, you might need to hold some extra string in your nonthrowhand, like the other people have said.


#7

cross ur hand farther and faster

Like what Brian said, tighten the gap. And try wrapping the string around the axle once or twice before binding. You can see Taiki Nishimura double binding in the 2006 World Yo-Yo Contest in this video:

Also, remember to pull up with your throwhand while you feed the string into the gap. So you’ll be pulling up, while crossing your hands. That’ll force string into the gap, binding it.

and they have a bunch of tuts and there is this one thing called magic return it returns the yoyo and is easier then the normal bind so check it out
