    In the Boston area it is really dry, my Pops dried out so what I have been using is an old cake of Kolstein soft, which is great. I just ordered this and I can't wait. $12 for UPS is steep, you can call and do $5 through UPS, it still comes in at cheaper than Oak either way:

    When it arrives, I would love to hear your impressions on it. I have played Pops, Kolstein AW, and Kolstein Soft (currently all three are in my bow case) but it has been a little drier than I am used to here. At the same time, softer than Kolstein Soft seems like it could be a little bit extreme for my liking. While I know that there are many other things one could do with one's free time, a rosin review and potential comparison to something else we would be more familiar with would be great.

    It has more grip than the Kolstein soft but has the same smoothness, not as grippy as Pops but not as sticky, either. I'd recommend it to anyone with winter rosin issues!
    I've really come to appreciate the roll down top. I will try their hard this summer, though I am super happy with the Oak hard I have now.
