I've tried to do some research on octagonal and round bows. I came across one site that gave me what I was looking for but now I can't find it nor do I remember what info it had.
Anyways, I have this octagonal pernambuco bow and I've tried to compare it with other bows that have equal to lesser price value.. and I've also had others try my octagonal bow and compare it with their octagonal bows. So far the round ones I've compared seem to be better than the octagonal one I have.
I'm not the only one who thinks this.. a friend has an octagonal bow and a round bow as his secondary.. from what I've heard and from what he's told me, the round one he has seems to be better than the primary ocatgonal bow he uses.
Ok, before I rant on any more, I wanted to know if anyone can give me detailed, specific info and research on the qualities between octagonal and round bows.
I've heard that octagonal bows are better and pricier than round bows but I don't think that's true.
