Be persistent.  Pretty soon you'll get faster and it will become familiar.

After the pop pup, try grabbing the string close to your throw hand--this may help yo find it.

Thanks for posting the link to Peach Soda, Neff.  I had forgotten about that video. Daveid is something else! I had to pick up a topdog and try the nail grinding after watching that.

Joshua does that very well.  He pulls it up hard enough so it goes an arm's length over his head, so he has plenty of time to get the string ready for the catch.

Should we talk about the side mount? I know Ta0 thinks it is easier for some people, but I have a hard time explaining the proper way to throw for the side mount.

If  somebody is using a string too long and hits the ground, side mount will avoid that. It may be also be a more natural throw if you are a yo-yo player.
I am still traveling: perhaps somebody else can link a video?

Hi Neff
Joshua told me to thank you, your reasoning is perfect in fact he said the launches so high just to be able to pull the string, otherwise he loses the top.
