Armani G-W already has a tutorial for this trick, but felt it could use a complimentary top down in super slow motion to help you see the mechanical breakdown from another angle.
Recorded on HTC One M8 with slow motion setting (120fps at 1280x720, at 1/4 speed). I then slowed it down half that speed in video editor to 1/8th speed (after my throw).
Can’t remember which two links are the ones friendliest to mobile users so I’ll put all three variants here just in case.

My personal advice for this trick:
- Whip the string through/beyond your thumb
- Get that string connected to your throw hand as quick as you can back under the yoyo after you whip it
