Often times today that trick is called hook.

Start with getting a general idea of how the trick works. The string loop hits your hand and loops around and hooks the yo-yo. Instead of using your finger right off the bat, use your whole arm. Whip the loop around that, but don’t worry about catching the yo-yo. Then, move on to using your finger and hitting the trick.

Be sure to also whip hard and big. Smooth movements will help in letting you understand everything that’s going on in the short time the trick happens as well as making the trick look good.

Here are two tutorials I found especially helpful as I was learning hook:

ok if after i roll its in a clean trapeezze is it wrong or should they be crossed???

For hook, the strings should be crossed.

For “trapeze whip”, or the basic “laceration” as it’s often called, there is a tutorial on this site. When you do that, the loop should be twisted around your finger, but the yoyo should be in a normal trapeze.

Not trying to discourage you from posting, but please don’t leave unnecessary replies. Thanks.

Oh also, please move this thread to the “Looking for help and recommendations” thread. Thanks.
