Brain Twister is a relatively simple string trick. Basically, it is an Under Mount slung around the hands.

Instructions

TIBrainTwister1

Step 1: Start with an Under Mount. If you have not yet mastered that one, see below for an alternate start.

Step 2: Pull up your free hand...

TIBrainTwister3

Step 3: ...over your throw hand, and bring your throw hand index finger back against the strings...

TIBrainTwister4

Step 4: ...and up,...

TIBrainTwister5

Step 5: ...slinging the yo-yo...

TIBrainTwister6

Step 6: ...over your throw hand...

TIBrainTwister7

Step 7: ... and away from you.

TIBrainTwister8

Step 8: Let it swing...

TIBrainTwister9

Step 9: ...down. You can stop here (skip to step 13), or...

TIBrainTwister10

Step 10: ...do another revolution...

TIBrainTwister11

Step 11: ...

TIBrainTwister12

Step 12: ...

TIBrainTwister13

Step 13: Now stop the swing and you are once more...

TIBrainTwister14

Step 14: ... in Under Mount. Dismount from there, e.g. using the Ferris Wheel Dismount.

Note, that for every revolution you do, you wind the string once around your throw hand index finger. When the yo-yo returns, let it "eat" the string from your finger by pointing it towards the yo-yo.

HB - I'll try to get an image of this, the next time I take pictures.


Alternate Start

If you have not yet mastered the Under Mount, you can also use this simple but effective start. If done with the right swing, it can look quite impressive.

Step 1: Throw a sleeper and then let the yo-yo swing away from you.

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart2

Step 2: While it is still swinging away from you, bring your free hand index finger forward into the string...

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart3

Step 3: ...while pulling down with your throw hand.

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart4

Step 4: This brings the yo-yo upwards, as if on a pulley. Now the yo-yo starts swinging towards you.

Step 5: Let it swing...

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart6

Step 6: ...into the string...

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart7

Step 7: ...and bring your throw hand around the yo-yo...

TIBrainTwisterAlternateStart8

Step 8: ...and up. You are now in an Under Mount.

Step 9: Start your Brain Twister from here.
