Interesting comparison to the Nyman
Sam4613, 13.10.2014
Being new to the world of bows and rosin, I decided to buy a couple of rosins to try out, particularly as I'd read on the internet about the idea of using different rosins in different orders when first applying rosin to a new bow.

I bought the Nyman and Pops

I've found the Pops to be quite sticky but helpful in producing a rich tone more easily than the Nyman. On the other hand, the Nyman makes the bow catch less and feels more manageable somehow. It is also easier to control in application.

I also had the idea that the harder Nyman rosin would make me learn a better bow technique. I have no idea if this makes any sense though, particularly since plenty of professional players use the Pops.

I live in the north of England so temperatiure control of rosin isn't a big issue. I did find the Pops oozed sideways a bit on a shelf with a light nearby (though not actually underneath). The rosin block wouldn't come out fo the case without a lot of banging so I can see that a bit of care is needed for managing that issue. The Nyman on the other hand has kept is shape resolutely. The result, of course, is that it sometimes takes a bit of working up and down before it softens enough to transfer to the bow hairs. The Pops applies immediately.

I guess overall that rosin is very much a personal preference product. I've seen merits in both these products and at the moment am uncertain which I'd use long term. I think the decision will ultimately be based on the musical direction I go down (following 30 years of electric) and sound it requires.

Pops knows best..!
nickscott61, 11.02.2020
I bought this rosin from Thomann.de as a change from my usual choice of bass rosin at the suggestion of an online forum and I wasn't disappointed; a few strokes on the bow-hairs add a fine coating that is sufficient for performance. It is not excessively sticky but adds just enough to the bow-hair surface to allow the bow to obtain 'purchase' on the string with each bow-stroke, perfect for my use - recommended.

A rosin you can rely on
Peter2708, 02.08.2019
Rosin is very much a matter of personal taste. But this one works well for me. I'm based in Copenhagen, so warm weather is uncommon. If it is in a hot car for a while it may well change shape, which can be a problem resulting in the cooled down rosin having sharp edges, or the wax paper getting stuck into the rosin itself.
I've been using this brand for a number of years and only had this issue once or twice, and only had the plastic container break once.
