Just wondering if the yo-yo is in the right position.  I'm having trouble getting my thumb to stick to the yo-yo. I'm using a Shutter.

You'll have an easier time of it, if you lean the top lip of the yoyo slightly towards you, instead of away from you. Also, you've got to cushion the landing- bend your knees as you catch. You might want to practice picking the yoyo up on your thumb from a trapeze, to learn how it feels to have the yoyo grinding on your thumb.

This is one trick I keep trying to get, and then moving on in frustration.  Rinse and repeat.  :/

I don't always ding my expensive yo-yos, but when I do, I just throw them again!   ;-)

I can do it sometimes but I have to work on how to get the yo-yo back on the string without it spinning out of control.

No.
Next question!

Just kidding.  These guys are right, the only thing I would add is that you might have an easier time with something like a Horizon, Too Hot, or Kuntash.

They have a very pronounced inner rim ring, that is a little easier to keep your thumb in.
