thumb starting HELP!

im having troubles thumb starting my Dark Magic Yoyo. When i try and spin it with my non-throw hand and bind it after that, it doesn’t seem to catch the string at all. please help!

Well, with a thumb start, the yoyo is spinning backwards from how it usually is, so bind the opposite way; instead of binding from a forward trapeze, bind from a brain twister mount. Make sure the loop is big enough as well.

i tryed that, but it doesn’t spin long enough for me to go into a braintwister mount

Well, do like you would for a normal bind, but backwards.
