    I bought a new bow about two weeks ago. It's fantastic from grip to tip. The maker is Mike Sheriff. He does alot of work with the Ft. Worth and Dallas Symphonies. The original price was $2500, but I got it for $1000! It is already propelling me to a new level of playing. It's silver mounted, 138 grams, no problem with spicatto, has a faux whalebone w/ lizard type grip, and posesses a very powerful tone.

    thats a long button!

    Mike's a nice guy, I used to deal with him in my distributor days.
  3. What's up with that? Is that for balance?

    Nice-looking bow, BTW! Congrats.

    The long button is used to add weight to the bottom of the stick, and it works quite nicely if I do say so myself. It's a good dollars worth of silver too.
