Spinworkx First Mount #36 - Double or Nothing with Mindbend (Back)

Remember Spinworkx First Mount #31? It was the Trapeze with Mindbend (Back) Mount. Here, First Mount #36 has the exact same logic as #31, but instead of a simple Trapeze, you have to get into a Double or Nothing and then getting the Mindbend to wrap around the yo-yo.

Let's begin to explain how the Double or Nothing with Mindbend (Back) is performed.

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 and continue around to your throwing hand index finger before heading back to your non-throwing hand index.

As soon as the yo-yo comes back around to hit your non-throw hand index, slack the string over and into the yo-yo gap from the back. When the yo-yo string is caught / wrapped around the bearing, it should end up appearing like a regular Double or Nothing. 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 there you have it, the Double or Nothing with Mindbend (Back) Mount.

A few pointers to take note of when learning the Double or Nothing 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 from the back into the yo-yo gap.
3) Try doing this Mount slowly to get the idea and the hang of the trick.

There you have it, #36 of the Spinworkx First Mount Project.
