So I am in the market for a new bow. I am currently using an ~$1000 german pernambuco bow.
I have the Coda Diamond GX, and various Jon Paul's on loan.
My first impression was that the coda gx was pretty good, but after playing with a Jon Paul Carrera, I fell in love with the Carrera. The discontinued Jon Paul Spiccato was also pretty good.
I know many of you won't touch anything besides a wooden bow (I was like this too. lol.), but I gave carbon fiber bows a chance, and I like them quite a bit. It's a bit different than the wooden bows, not better or worse, but just different.
Any opinions on the whole carbon fiber vs. wooden bow argument?
Any particular carbon fiber bows or wooden bows that you guys prefer?
