Hi, I am currently in the market for nice french bow. I have come across and very nice French style HR Pfretzschner ($3000). I am just wondering though because I have not seen many french HRP mostly German. Can anyone tell me about their French bows? Ken I noticed you have one on your web page. But you say you think it is fake, why?? This bow I am trying is pretty long and has a somewhat smaller tip. The frog has that symbol on it and is stamped HR Pfretzschner. Also what should one look for in a bow, I know contact and response in important but I woulkd like to hear some people throw some other things out here -so I can make the best decision.
