Glad that I wasn't crazy John. LOL
We wouldn't want to sell anyone a club. ;)
Thanks for clarifying.

Would you believe that I have a bow that has an overall length of 840mm or 33 inches and weighs in at 46.3g? And the hair is guaranteed 'Mongolian' 

True :)

I believe you John.
I know that many people want lighter bows but I need more weight. It requires too much effort for me to get a sound with a light bow. I tried the expensive Arcus bows but they don't do me any favors.
I have spoken to a lot of my colleques about this as well. Most agree that the ideal weight is around 60g. Some want just a bit higher and some want a bit lower. I've even had some players tell me they are looking for a much heavier bow which is why I knew we didn't have any that heavy. LOL
In the case that a violinist wants a heavier CF bow we usually sell them the viola bow. :)
