A cool (and very fast) whip trick, not unlike [[Reverse Slack Trapeze]], but without the pinch. It is recommended, that you master that one before progressing here.

A cool (and very fast) whip trick, not unlike Reverse Slack Trapeze, but without the pinch. It is recommended, that you master that one before progressing here.

Step 1

Step 1: Thow a Breakaway and let the yo-yo hang.

Step 2

Step 2: Pull upwards...

Step 3

Step 3: ...and whip the string...

Step 4

Step 4: ...down...

Step 5

Step 5: ...under your free hand index finger. It is important that, at this time, the yo-yo is hovering next to the finger.

Step 6

Step 6: Let the string continue around the finger into the gap...

Step 7

Step 7: ...and let it catch there.

Repeat

Steps 5 through 7 from a different angle.

Repeat

Steps 5 through 7 from a different angle.

Repeat

Steps 5 through 7 from a different angle.

Step 8

Step 8: Now pull the string tight. The yo-yo now rests in a loop. When performing live, this is a great moment. :)

Step 9

Step 9: Dismount like a Windmill Dismount by swinging the yo-yo over your free hand...

Step 10

Step 10: ...and...

Step 11

Step 11: ... you should now be either in a twisted Trapeze or a Reverse Trapeze, ready to start a Sidestyle BackBind, depending on which segment of the loop you hit the gap with.
