Wood bows are unacceptable - A comparison of the S7, M7, and P7

Over the past month I had the pleasure of trying the following bows: S5, S6, S6 (Octagonal), S7, M7, and P7. The differences between the S5, S6es, and S7 are qualitative so it is really easy to gravitate towards the S7. The S7 is simply better and thus plays and sounds like it. It is hard NOT to prefer it over the others. The differences between the P7, M7, and S7 are much more subtle and far more subjective. They are all excellent bows but have their own forte. It really depends on the material you are playing and what you like. The P7 feels powerful and is much easier to pull gritty, aggressive sounding notes where the S7 requires more work. (more volume and projection with less work) The S7 is easier to play with a very light touch, is super responsive, and definitely brighter. The P7 sounds rich and velvety in the lower registers. The M7 sits somewhere in between, feels exceptionally stable, and sounds very clear. It's easier to get some "bite" with M7 versus the S7 but the softer stick feels less lively. The P7 and M7 both pull fuller, fatter notes with spicatto than the S7. Two things were certain; I couldn't go back to my wood bow (I have been ruined!) and I couldn't buy all three. I decided to keep the P7. The ability to pull hard and fast doublestops without bottoming out the stick was the thing that tipped the scales in favor of the P7 for me. I mean you can REALLY tear into it and the P7 says, "Is that all you got? Gimme more!!"
