The Recessed Bootleg Monkey by Takeshi starts life as a Duncan Freehand 2. Takeshi shaves off parts of the yo-yo in order to fit Coral Snake Rings over the sides of the yo-yo. The Result looks a bit like the Duncan Throw Monkey. Takeshi also uses a lathe to shave off approximately 0.5 mm of material from one of the two friction sticker mounting points.
The result is a great looking yo-yo which is wonderful unresponsive for advanced play, but returns with a bind.
