I got this bow because it was carbon fiber and more durable than wood and keeps straight. Well, this one has creep - an unintended, undesirable bend 90 degrees from the intended, necessary camber in the bow. The hair itself is of uneven length with 8-10 that reach the opposite side of the stick when loose. Looking with hair side up, from the frog, down to the tip and at playing tension, there is a warp: The hair has a slight twist to it, a wind. I can twist the tip to make it true but it won't stay of course. The entire adjusting screw is used to reach playing tension. And yet I play this bow as well as any pernambucos I have. My other Presto for cello is perfect. I can correct hair issues when I re-hair it. Bad day at the factory? Seconds get shipped accidentally? No matter. If this plays this good in this condition, I imagine what a better made one would do. I recommend this bow.

Before I bought this bow, I was using a cheap stock brazilwood bow that came with my viola. Due to an accident, the bow itself broke, and given the cost, it wasn't worth fixing. Off a suggestion, I bought this bow. The moment I picked it up and bowed a string, that was it. At that point in my life, I knew I could never go back to a brazilwood bow again. The bow glides easily and feels great in the hand. It's not a pain to rosin and even my teacher was amazed at the quality of the bow for the price. I'd definitely recommend this bow.

This bow helped me when I was in a pinch a week before a concert with my university symphony. It is easy to work with, has a decent weight, and handles massive usage in a small period of time. This makes for great back up bow in time of need, or a good starter carbon fiber for those that are new to them.
