Good bow for the price

I am a self learning student and this bow has helped me play the complex parts in beginner-intermediate level concertos. This one is good for the price point (I tried out one of the best bows at a local luthier and those were expensive)

Good bow, but the wrapping is a bit loose

The bow came in on time and in good condition. It plays as expected (nicely!), the only issue I have noticed is that the wrapping above the grip is a bit loose. All in all, it would be very difficult to find another bow that plays this well near the same price point.
