Honestly no string is actually unbowable... HOWEVER, for most of us, the amount of work/practice it takes to bow a particular string varies widely. And there are plenty of strings that will never be acceptable in orchestra/classical settings.
I've never bowed Garbos but I'm starting to get a good sound out of the gut strings on my bass. I've also had others with excellent arco skills bow on my bass and the sound was stunning.
"...sounds like a goddamn train wreck!"
