Well 4 months into an attempt that many times has seemed like one fail after another I wound up getting one of Fiddler man's carbon fiber bows before and after ordering this bow I noticed I was getting some bad ju ju going on and started to suspect some rosin I bought just after I started playing.

so I ordered a sample of some stuff called magic rosin which is clear Sunday I went to my lesson with old and new bow in hand (well in my violin case that is)I discussed this problem with my old bow sounding as if there was no rosin or what ever was going on here emailed Mike from Fiddlershop and asked if weather changes was doing it or if the extreme temperature changes we have been having in my part of country was doing this.

Well once I spoke to someone in my area about this dark verses light rosin situation I finally rosined the new bow up and as could be expected this bow is the difference between night and day even my teacher was impressed and I'm sure happy I've not had anymore of the screeching and crunching going.

This bow's sits flat and even over the strings its lighter and I seem to be spending less time fighting to have to be just so so with my draw which gives me the opportunity spend more time actually playing and paying attention to reading the sheet music I'm playing from instead of constantly having to worry about my bow skating across my strings.

So its a big thumbs up for the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow from me,I'm in no way a pro nor do I work for Fiddlershop but if you find yourself in the need for a bow this one is well worth the consideration.

@ Watchtower68: Glad you like it. Many of the member's here (including myself) have the FM / CF bow and we all love em too. In fact, I'm thinking of ordering another one if Pierre can find one around 59 or 60 gram's again.

Thank's for the nice review.

Southern more humid environments the dark rosin is better and does not make near the mess

Well, dark rosin works better (than the light one) in a dry cold climate also.
