    Does anyone know anything about carbon fiber bow cases? I have the standard kind of hardshell, canvas-wrapped bow case, but it really adds a lot of weight to the bass case.

    Carbon fiber is such a light, strong material that it seems like a no-brainer to make things like bow cases out of.
  2. CF bow cases make sense, yes, but I guess that most will see it as overkill and an unnecessary expenditure that doesn't relate directly to playing the instrument.

    If I had infinite resources, I could also have gold purfling installed.

    A standard plywood bow case is more than adequate, even for a $100,000 bow it will do the job as long as you don't drop it off a building or put it in a bailer. Plus, aramid / kevlar would actually be better for impact resistance / absorption.
