From John BlakelyNot sure this question has a single answer. For instance, I believe the best rosin for Dominant strings is ... you guessed it, Dominant rosin.

Rob raises an interesting point. Might there be some way of treating the strings which has the same effect as rosining the bow hair...!!??
From Willemijn ZwikstraSalchow is also my favourite.

From Joe PasillasYes that was the best - it is no longer made as I understand it. I will EDIT if I am wrong. There is almost no stock remaining at various stores. But I loved that rosin - it was awesome.

From Emmanuel BorowskyI've only tried Bernardel, Tartini, and Salchow but Salchow is by far the best for me. I sold mine to someone that really wanted it unfortunately and have to make do with Bernardel again until my new cake of Salchow comes in the mail. With some luck IUStrings.com may soon be offering some types of rosins in addition to strings.
