PRESTO® Carbon Fiber Performance Series

PRESTO® Performance Series carbon fiber bows have gained a loyal following among players and teachers alike. Combining modern, strong, state-of-the-art materials with traditional handcraft, these bows are as impressive and beautiful to look at as they are to play. Agile handling, arrow-straight tracking and full tonal power are hallmarks of these fine bows. Decidedly stunning in appearance due to the open weave carbon cloth, these bows are far better suited for severe performance conditions than wood bows, including pernambuco. And, as the world's supply of expensive pernambuco wood disappears, PRESTO® Performance Series bows deliver more performance for your dollar than any fine bow on the market today.

Nickel mounted, open weave back carbon-fiber finish.

    Probably not for every player

    In its 3/4 size, this is a pretty decent carbon bow for the money. It's light, at around 52 grams, and very stiff -- probably stiffer than any pernambuco bow you'll ever encounter. The balance oint is a bit close to the frog, at around 8.5" (21.6cm) from the end of the stick. This frog-heavy balance point isn't really a big drawback -- the bow's light weight seems to make up for that. The bow's stiffness may make it inappropriate for beginners, though. It's not particularly forgiving. In the end, my daughter decided to keep using her fiberglass Glasser bow. I hadn't expected that. ... (See Full Review)
