    Hello Everyone,

    I am looking for a FRENCH bow new or used under $400

    Right now I am leaning towards buying a Finale Carbon Bow but I figured I would check to see if any of you had a more expensive bow that is used.

    I am fine with it being nicked up, as long as it is not too bad, and it does not need to be re-haired.

    I would prefer to deal with someone who has lots of experience on here since I am very new but I am sure we could work something out no matter what.

  2. Hi Wyatt,

    Check eBay. Someone from Philly has been trying to sell an allegedly unused Glasser braided carbon fiber bow for $300, which is $150 off the new price. I have one of the cheaper Glasser carbon fiber sticks, and it's not bad at all.

    Are you looking for French or German? Have a couple of German you may be interested in.

    Wyatt, not sure if you're looking the wood bow route, but Gollihur and Lemur both sell brazilwood bows for ~200.

    A bit gentler on the wallet, but I haven't played a Glasser to make a QA comparison.

    Thank you for the heads up! I just wish I had a little more time to make a decision than a few hours haha. But I may end up buying it.

    Sorry about that, I edited my post to specify I am looking for a french bow.

    From what I have read here, I should go the extra 100 and get a finale but they are still being considered. I am very open to wood but It seems like my best bet would be getting either a used wood bow that retails new for higher. Or just a carbon bow if i only have a few hundred to spend.

    Still looking for a bow?
  8. Have a braided carbon fiber french bow -like new- for $110 shipped to CONUS only---
  9. I have a Gotham Song French bow from David Gage that I would be willing to sell for $125 shipped CONUS only. I bought it because I wanted to try French bow, but I like German a bit too much!
