Carbon Fiber Bow Review
How strong is the bow?
High quality hand made carbon fiber viola bow with a round stick. Full size. Nicely decorated copper mounted ebony frog. Quality Siberian horse hair. Great balance. Very nice arch with good bounce and action. Carbon fiber bows are dependable and strong. Weighs ~ 70 grams
The Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber Bow has one of the best bow warranties around! We have customized the arch and weight distribution to the likings of Fiddlerman. Both the stick and mechanical parts by the frog are covered for 5 years should anything go wrong. The hair is covered for 3 months and the wood wedge (at the tip) 12 months.

These folks always go the extra! Sold as “B-stock”, this bow has no defects I can detect! - true I’m an amateur on viola but I’ve played lots of instruments, in my experience inferior tools make things harder; no such issue here! Shop Fiddlerman with confidence, practice lots and get vaccinated ! ;-)
Excellent, Inexpensive Bow.
I'm not a professional musician, but i did take private lessons for 12 years, about 20 years ago. I don't have any problems with control or creating tone with this bow, even with Staccato (haven't tried ricochet). If you're not a professional or advanced player, i would highly recommend this bow for value.
Reinforces the quality of their other bows.
I purchased a B-Stock bow as a backup practice bow, and the price was good. It was shipped promptly and packaged very well. I examined it and could not find anything that would clue me in that it is B-Stock. (Maybe B means better?) This bow is nicer than most other bows in use that I see, and I do get compliments on it. It gives me confidence in the attention to quality given by Fiddlerman and reinforces the trust that any bow from Fiddlerman is going to be great!
