This First Mount trick is something that is not commonly found or seen in tricks these days, but it has the potential to lead on to other mounts and is definitely worth exploring. The Mindbend trick was made popular by Doctor Popular in The Glass Lab - Lab Experiment 4 clip video where he used it to do tricks like the Robot, Flop, etc. Furthermore, this method that we are using to get into the Mindbend is rather interesting as it requires a fair bit of slack and precision.
So let us explain how the Trapeze with Mindbend mount is done.
First, throw a straight Breakaway. It doesn't need to be too strong a Breakaway as you would not want the yo-yo to be swinging too fast.
As the yo-yo is swinging upwards, let it hit your non-throw hand index finger.
As soon as the yo-yo hits your non-throw hand index, slack the string over and into the yo-yo gap. When the yo-yo string is caught / wrapped around the bearing, it should end up appearing like a regular Trapeze. However, when you try to hop the yo-yo up or off the string, you should not be able to as there is a mindbend around the yo-yo.
And that is how you do the Trapeze with Mindbend (Back) mount.
A few pointers to take note of when learning the Trapeze with Mindbend (Back) Mount:
1) Remember not to throw your Breakaway too hard.
2) When throwing the slacked string into the yo-yo, aim and swing the string into the yo-yo gap.
3) Try doing this Mount slowly to get the idea and the hang of the trick.
That is all for the Spinworkx First Mount Project this time around.
Till the next Mount,
