I got to it, because I am a computer engineer and a programmer and know how to interpret HTML, but most people will not be able to post to this thread.

March 11, 2020, 5:41 PM · After I asked, I had a eureka moment...
March 11, 2020, 7:37 PM · I once bought 200 violin bows on ebay, and about half of them were Golden Strad fiberglass bows, pretty much worthless, I don't think they're as good as Glasser fiberglass, I think they were hollow inside.
March 11, 2020, 7:52 PM · I’m hollow inside too:(.
March 12, 2020, 3:25 AM · Xuanyuan,surely you have at least a soundpost,lol :-)
March 12, 2020, 7:14 AM · My 2 Arcus bows are hollow inside too.
But in their incave there is very pure german air...... not the polluted chinese one, mr Taylor.

Double post;)

Edited: March 12, 2020, 1:03 PM · With a hollow bow it would be a fairly simple matter to adjust its weight to one's preference by filling it with lead shot, the density of which is 11.4 g/ml. If lead isn't heavy enough than try osmium, which is about twice as dense.


March 12, 2020, 1:42 PM · I thought many times to put inside like a sphere, free to move, that alters the inertia in some way :)

I initially thought to put this inside a carbon arrow (i'm an archer), that is hollow too. Maybe one day......
