Hello all, Last week I shipped my inexpensive bow to get rehaired. The bowmaker informed me that the frog had split during shipping. Major bummer. Since it was a cheap bow I decided not to have it fixed. Then followed the terrible task of trying to decide on a bow in my very limited budget. Not fun. Based on some reviews I read on these forums (Monte and Aroneng) I decided to give this bowmaker in Oklahoma a call. (Tom Owens - 580-927-9939). I am very glad that I did. I recieved my bow last Monday (I called him on the previous Friday afternoon). Having spent a mere 5 days with the bow I am elated. I knew a good bow could make a huge impact on your playing, but I didn't actually think it would work with me. Beautiful craftsmenship and an amazing feel has me convinced that for the price I don't think that I could have done too much better. Thank you for your recommendations and your candor. I am once again whole.
