    FS: Codabow/David Gage Metropolitan Carbon Fiber French Bow. Plays great and in excellent shape. Had it a few years and have since switched to German. Older style.

    $600 shipped in the US.

    Newer ones have a reformulated core and are a tad heavier. The old ones were highly regarded and were considered to sound as good as many wood bows worth a lot more. It's a great bow, just not getting used very much.

    i play on the same bow, french older style codabow. cannot recommend these enough, they feel absolutely perfect. considering what a $600-1500 or so wood bow feels like, these are no brainers to me.

    free bump for a wonderful bow.
