For more than one year I am now playing happily with my Arcus bow. I think I convinced a couple of friends to switch over to an Arcus (Cadenza) for its lightness, its rapid response and especially for its wonderful sound.
Sometimes I meet skepticism against carbon fiber bows, but then I simply let them try the bow to convince them of its qualities.
I don't reject to maybe invest in a good pernambuco bow some time, but you have to admit that you would have to pay a lot more for a pernambuco bow with similar qualities as my Arcus.
Many thanks to Arcus for the continued development and the great service for the music.
