    I'd like to sell my Gollihur bow, German frog, which I purchased from him about three months ago. I bought it as kind of a stop-gap in between using a friend's very nice bow and purchasing one of my own in the $1000 range. For a $150 bow, this one is quite nice!

    $100 plus shipping, and PayPal works fine for me.
    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    Hi Jeremy -
    I'd like to try one of Bob's bows - I prefer a smaller German frog. Could you tell me the measurement of the frog, between the stick and the inlay (? you know - the part your pinkie touches)
    Also, do you know the weight? And it doedn't happen to have black hair on it, does it?

    Thanks,
    Stan

    Hi--
    The frog is on the small side (at least from my experience), about 1 7/8" in height. I don't know the weight of the bow, but it is on the light side even while it feels heavier than it really is because of the balance (it's a bit tip-heavy, at least if you're used to bows of much higher quality). The hair is white, and I haven't had it re-haired in the three months I've owned it; while the hair is fine, I think a re-hair right out of the box would have been a good idea, and black hair would be better for this bow (provided it's true that black hair is rougher than white). It pulls a nice sound, compared with the low-end carbon fiber bow I've also been using.

    If it's 1 7/8 at its highest point, I think I'd like to try it - how do you want to work out the shipping, payment, etc?

    Yes, 1 7/8" is as deep as it gets. I just sent you an email with further information about a possible transaction.
