Coda bow bow education.
WRT this page:
Can someone explain to me what they mean when differentiate action from stiffness?
How can a bow be supple and stiff at the same time? Or soft and firm? They don't define their terms enough for me to understand what they mean.
I think this is the paragraph that troubles you:
Denser stick or less hair = decisive attack and strong sound
A softer stick should be haired with less hair and a stiffer stick should be rehaired with more hair. You don't put the same amount of hair in every bow. Well, you might, but a good rehairer won't.
Lots of good responses so far.
I found the Luma the best of all the Codabows as SOUND. The other models left me quite disappointed.
"A bow’s action is ultimately determined by how and where the bow flexes. "
"How can a bow be supple and stiff?"
I've been looking at getting a Coda bow, and I was looking at the Luma. My Weichold bow is pretty light, but has definite weight in the frog and in the tip. I hadn't noticed it until I tried my friend's Artino CF bow (which, to my surprise, I didn't hate) and new wooden bow (probably brazilwood, but not sure).
