This post is not intended as a proof of anything but might be food for thought.
I recently bought an Eastman 305 and, separately, 2 ridiculous bows at $8.00 and the second "biggie" at a whopping $10.00. I knew this move was not too bright.
Now, the 305 was great but I think I've heard better examples. I remembered the Quinn E-string trial package and tried experimenting with my many E strings in my archives.
The winners were:
A Tonica E and others Dominant.
One of the Brazil wood "junk" bows. Either the $8 or $10 version. I lost track.
