C5BAE375-C259-4465-A701-B7477EDB41F3.jpegJust when you think that you have a handle on things, you find out something else.  I just found an auction for a Benois Rolland (he is now involved with the Jean-Paul brand of bows) Spiccato Premiere carbon fiber bow with an adjustable “truss wire” to vary the bow’s camber to the style of music you are playing.  He has a US Patent 5323675 for this device.
