slight bend in CF bow I am considering buying
« on: Mar 09, 2014, 07:04:31 PM »
Iím a beginner and Iím shopping for a carbon fiber bow. Stamellís in Amherst has some for 95 bucks. I have a couple on loan, (the lend 2 at a time and I'll be trying a few more--itís amazing how different thay can be) and one of them has a bit of a bend to the left (toward the bridge as you play) but I otherwise like the feel. Obviously Iíll probably find one thatís straighter and feels just as good, but it makes me wonderówhen it comes to carbon fiber, does it matter if thereís a slight bend in the bow? Itís slightly more than slight, but nowhere near severe, and itís only like that under tension.

I wouldn't touch it. I don't actually know anything about cf bows, but this one sounds faulty. With a wood bow it can probably be corrected, don't know about cf, but why buy something faulty?

Could just be a poor hairing job. If one side is tighter than the other that can cause the issue.
