There is a trick I wanna learn. I see it all the time but still can't figure out how it is done. It goes something like this..
The person throws up the yoyo in the air and the string goes slack, and then land on a string. The person now has a one handed trapeze with his index finger. I can do this trick with the trapeze resting on my thumb. Can someone please tell me? And btw, what is this trick called?

i believe that's a one-handed laceration. very fun to do with an unresponsive yo yo.It is better to have tried and failed miserably, then to never have tried at all!

if i think i know what you are talking a bout then i probably can explain. i think i came about it when i was doing one handed whips into green triangle.
1. pop the yo up to make some slack and then whip the loop around the yo and into the gap in a clockwise arch. i think you have done up to this part right i assume.
2. this is what makes the difference, when the loop is on its way stick out your index finger like your pointing straight ahead and slightly to the right.
3. what should happen is the top of the loop will catch on your finger but the rest will swing around into the yo forming a trapeze.
after a while it becomes so natural it feels like a reflex action when you throw the yo. its also the trick that most looks like a trapeze.
have fun!Just Cut em up like Regular Chickens.

looking back, i realized that i didn't completely answer your question. my apologies. well, here's a short description of how i learned to do one-handed lacerations.
1.) throw a breakaway and just let the yo yo hang at the end of the string.
2.) tug at the yo yo to pop it up into the air. you don't want to pull too hard whereas the yo yo would catch and return, rather just hard enough that the yo yo will just barely reach your underarm or chest before it starts to descend.
3.) as the yo yo reaches its apex, use your your throw hand to swing a loop of string under the yo yo around the bottom of the yo yo (clockwise direction for right and counter-clockwise for left handers).
4.) once the loop passes around the yo yo and starts to move upwards, then stick out your thumb (or index finger) and intercept the loop.
5.) once the yo yo lands and straightens the strings out, you're in a one-handed trapeze. congratulations, you've just performed a one-handed laceration!
try practicing this trick on a very unresponsive yo yo as there is a high chance of the yo yo snagging during the pop up. after you have refined your technique and get better at it, you can then work your way up to a more responsive or even a fixed axle yo yo with this trick. it's also better if you have already mastered regular lacerations before you attempt this trick.It is better to have tried and failed miserably, then to never have tried at all!
