Try spreading the ends of the tips farther apart, and point one end to the axle and try whipping it. THat should work. also, make your your string isnt all twisted up.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

You could do a japanese style whip catch as it looks better and some people find it easier.

Make sure you're whipping the diabolo from the side - a lot of people starting with whip catches don't catch them because they're not in line with the axle.

What Dracodragon said is good advice too.

Also, stop using so many smilies - it's very irritating.
