I have to agree with all the reviews - this bow is fantastic! I was super excited to see that it finally arrived today - it's certainly worth the extra $20 in duty and tax I had to pay (Yay Canada Customs). I still can't get over how light it feels, and how balanced it is when I hold it without my violin. My other bow feels weighted wrong but this one....it just fits if that makes any sense. It's beautiful to look at, the MOP inlay is stunning. Very happy camper here!!

Nothing ya can do about the duty and I can't say I didn't expect it :)  I've gotten away with not paying it enough times that I don't mind on occasion :)

Really good bows for the money.  I'm have 4 of them now.  2 violin and 2 viola. I'm sure there are much better bows out there, but I'll bet there aren't any better anywhere near their price.

I feel the same way when I'm playing with my CF bow from FM.

It's almost like it just floats from string to string by itself.

Can't much easier than that...

I too have a FiddlerMan C.F. Bow. I find it has a great balance and I can keep it straight on the strings, I would certainly get another one if needed.

I can't wait until I get my FM Carbon Fibre bow. All the reviews say that it is AMAZING.

Thanks everyone. I still use it on all my gigs and videos even though I have 3 older fine bows valued in the thousands. On the other hand, I would need to get them rehaired but in reality, I rather just get a new FM CF bow instead of the rehair. :)
