Decent bow for the price

I bought this bow as I needed a German style bow for a run of gigs, and honestly didn't want to spend a lot of money. For what it is, it's a very nice bow in the price range and the hair is nicer than I expected at this price point. One thing I do not like is the leather wrap. I've only used it on five rehearsals at this point, and the leather is starting to come apart at the seam, and there are some noticeable gouges in the leather itself. These are things that really shouldn't happen this quickly; we're talking about a span of three weeks.

Good Product when it works

I love Shar products, and as an educator on a budget I thought this was a dream importunity to replace my old dilapidated fleet of bass bows with a decent product at a good price. When I received the 10 that I ordered, one was broken right out of the box. It wouldn't tighten, then within a week 2 more had gone the same way, and now 6 months in, 5 of the original 10 don't work. The hair pulls away from the frog, and the bow won't tighten. Now Shar has been great about replacing them, but I don't want to keep having to send in the bad ones and get another that may or may not have the same problem. I fear I may have to look into replacing the whole fleet sometime in the near future.

stopped working

I am an elementary/middle school string teacher and have loved the Shar Fusion violin bows. So I decided to try the bass bow despite the other post about having many of them go bad. The one I bought was great for 6 weeks and then it became impossible to tighten enough. The screw is screwed in as far as it will go and the hair is still way too loose. The bow will have to go back.
