A top pro who performs with rare and priceless bows told me that I'd have to spend at least $2000 to find a pernambuco bow that plays as well as the 305. I have two 305's, plus my daughter uses one and I have another for my viola. My daughter considered one for her cello but selected the CodaBow Diamond SX instead.

Would you say that the playability of the 302 is similar to the 305? I am not concerned with the cosmetics. I would rather not upgrade to the 305 for cosmetics only!
I read your resume which is quite impressive. I don’t know how you and your wife have time to eat and sleep!
I am a retired GP/FP IN Sudbury Ontario Canada, 250 mi north of Toronto. We have quite a bit of snow here.
I am just an average player. I have read about many carbon fibre bows and the Cadenza is rarely mentioned
