I've got two of these, one in the most frequently used acoustic or electric violin cases.
Not my first carbon fibre bow, but really nice to use, not too expensive, but better than the cheap (40¤ or so) bows I have used for most of my life. Mind you, I still sometimes use a fiddle I bought for £1.25 (2¤) in 1970, mainly when accompanying my singing accomplice Bernard. I recently treated myself to a £90 (120¤) replacement which is really nice, and loud enough to make itself heard above an enthusiastic button accordeon player. So you can perhaps see that Woodix bows have managed to open the wallet of this member of the Scottish diaspora further than usual.

Very good price-performance ratio
The bow is used on the E-violin (private for practicing and in the band over PA). I have the comparison between the plastic sheet present in the set and several wood arches between 100 and 600 ¤. The woodix plays very well, produces warm tones, does not scratch (proper care of the strings and hair presupposed) and glides very nicely without swinging. I suspect an optimum strength and elasticity of the carbon arc. He does not come quite close to the wooden arch for 600 ¤, but the huge price difference does not justify this. For people looking for a carbon bow, this bow is highly recommended. I have also decided for the woodix because it has a wood imitating color. But this is, of course, a matter of taste.
