    Selling a beautiful Marco Raposo french bow. Octagonal stick. Very well balanced and pulls a solid and even tone - it plays beautifully. There is a small blemish on the frog that may have been a repair - it is not very noticeable in person and the folks at David Gage said it didn't affect the value significantly. Weighs in at 133.8 grams. It was just re-haired last week. Comes with a solid Mauricio Riboni case. Would prefer a local sale, but will ship to the lower 48 for $35. Cash or venmo preferred. $800

    Thanks!

    How heavy? How long?

    I don't have a gram scale, but it feels comparable to my Reid Hudson bow. I'll try to track a scale down.

    Length of hair is 21.75" and total length is 26.5.

    Weight in grams would be super helpful. Thanks!

    I'm interested, but really can't do more than $700. Would you be interested?
