About Modfather Yo-yos

The Recess
The Modfather silicone recesses are 0.060" deep, and he uses flowable silicone. A depth of 0.060" gives the perfect surface area for the silicone to adhere to. The "concave" in the silicone gives less response.

Single vs double recess
A single recess simply means there is just one recess on one side of the yo-yo. The other side is left untouched. A double recess is when a recess is cut into both sides (halves) of the yo-yo.

A single side recess gives you enough grip with a bind to return the yo-yo. The double recess still plays un-responsive, but is a bit more forgiving if you don't do a perfect bind (i.e. there is double the amount of silicone area for the string to grab!). Both models WILL require a bind.

The Silicone
Both single and double models have a "concave" in the flowable silicone to ensure there won't be too much response without a bind. This is a really nice feature and many players prefer this to a flat silicon finish. The silicon should last a long time and changing the silicone shouldn't be necessary. However, if it is, just use flowable silicone.

The Machining
The Modfather is a professional metal machinist. All of his recesses are precision engineered on a metal lathe. The Modfather does all his own work, and tests each yo-yo personally. The tooling is hand cut and is only used for his mods. He even has a separate tooling for metal vs. plastic yo-yos.

The Bearing
Each stock yo-yo bearing is given a thorough Modfather clean and is supplied dry. It is advised that you lightly lube the bearing.

Quality Control
The Modfather has very high standards, and ANY yo-yo he mods gets tested, and if it's not PERFECT, it doesn't leave his workshop. They check for response, bearing sound, and correct bindings. World-famous yo-yo icon Steve Brown has worked closely with The Modfather during the making of these awesome custom Yo-Yos. He personally tested every one, and each has his approval!

The Modfather Himself
When not modding yo-yos, The Modfather works as a locksmith in Cleveland, Ohio. Besides modding yo-yos, he is a current Guinness World Record Holder for hitting the most bullseyes (darts) in 10 hours and inventor of the CribCard cribbage Scoring Aid. He is a former "Team High Performance" yo-yo demonstrator (1998-99) and currently runs the Cleveland Yo-Yo Club. With the help of Steve Brown, as well as other pro players, he has been able to perfect the recessing of yo-yos.
