In FEWER than 50 characters EXCELLENT BOW
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent bow; far better than similarly priced traditional wooden ones.

Cons: Takes a bit of getting used to it. A bit bouncy.

Other: Arrived in a large "smartie" tube. Should have been safe and secure, but round plastic discs at ends of tube not fixed in any way. One just pulled out without any resistance at all - harder to open a tube of smarties! Other one was bent and pushed up in to the tube. The bow could so easily have fallen out en route. Needed extra layer of strong wrapping plus proper sealing.

Well made and a reasonable price from Stringzone.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Bought as a second bow, one for violin and one for viola. Produces clear sound, "speaks" readily - especially good for light quick/bounced bowings. Nicely made bow.

Cons: There only seems to be one weight/balance for either violin or viola bow. I would prefer the heel end to be more weighted for heavier bowings. Not so much spring in the stick as wooden bows for articulation/stresses - would like more. Not a lot of space for holding the bow, leather lapping could be a bit longer - I need an extra rubber grip on bow for fear of letting go, especially if hands are cold.

Grade 8+

Smooth, light.

Pros: Nice balance and feel.

Cons: Not as much "bite" as a wood bow. Somehow did not get into the string.

Other: Bows are a personal matter. It is good to try several, though be warned that in my experience the most expensive always seems to win out in blind tests!!
