I just started playing with a bow that is a transitional bow. Similiar curvature to a modern bow but about 2 1/2 inches shorter made of snakewood (stiffer). The hair ribbon is slightly narrower too. For some reason I feel more confident playing it and it seems I can be quicker somehow. I have to admit that I almost run out of bow once or twice, but so far so good:) Had been using a both CF bow and a really good modern one that I was happy with, but I had a chance to play an older style bow and immediately got hooked. Any one else use a non-modern bow?
I just put up some video under the sound-off section using it.
