 I do not understand how the videos make it look so easy. When I do get it to bind it snaps up so fast most of the time I cannot catch it! Any advice would be appreciated. What is the best "bind teaching" video out there?

In my opinion the bind is a massive mile stone in the yoyoing learning curve. It took me quite a while to learn. Don't get too discouraged Smiley I'm not too great at explaining stuff but if possible if you want to post a video, that could be helpful with attempting to help! Smiley

 I always end up putting some lube in just to have fun with my throws. I will keep practicing!

The lube is probably what makes it come back so fast and hard. Lube makes a yoyo responsive. Binds are meant for unresponsive yoyos.

AHH! So it should be totally unresponsive before I even consider trying to bind. I will clean the lube out of one of them and use it for practice.

Are you trying the basic front bind ? If it snaps back fast it sounds like you are throwing it really hard and then binding it up. The yoyo doesn't have to be cooking that fast to bind up. Do a good medium throw and then try it. It will bind up more slowly, even if it is playing somewhat responsive.

It is possible to bind a completely responsive yoyo. Practice lots. Enjoy.

I s'pose it looks cool.

The way I always teach my friends, once you get into the position, just pinch the string with your left hand, then you'll feel it catch. Just get used to that feeling

 I am not using "thick" lube...just a drop or 2 of thin lube to make it a little more responsive.

Clean the bearing and try it w/o lube. Then let us know the result as that may well verify if it's the lube or some other issue.

You can find info on cleaning the bearing here if you need it:
