We have tested hundreds of cheap Cello bows and chosen this one as our favorite! This is the best deal on a cello bow for under $100, hands down. In our opinion, better than any cheap pernambuco cello bow! Weight: ~ 80 grams This Carbon Fiber Cello Bow is manufactured to replicate the perfect weight and curve of an expensive Pernambuco wood bow. If you're spending less than $400 on a wood bow, we recommend you go with Carbon Fiber. Any less of a quality wood bow will not give you the right weight distribution or curve. Perfect cello bow to upgrade to if you have purchased an electric and/or Cecilio Cello Outfit. High-quality hand-made carbon fiber composite cello bow. Nicely decorated copper mounted ebony frog. Quality Siberian horse hair. Great balance. Very nice arch with good bounce and action. Rosin has never touched this bow. Use your own favorite cello rosin!

I have a blog where I am detailing my progress learning to play the cello and I will be posting a full detailed review of this bow within about a week.
EDIT: I have been using this bow (and my new Codabow Diamond) for about a year now, and I have made a couple videos to show the to playing a simple study for comparison of tone. Tone is only one aspect of a bow, and is not enough to judge a bow, but the others articulation, balance, etc, are difficult to demonstrate and very personal.
I am still very happy and can recommend this bow if you want an inexpensive bow to start with:
I've been playing cello for a long time, sheesh 25 years now and I went to a violin shop to try bows. I ended up playing wood and carbon fiber and took a much more expensive carbon fiber bow to play/test. I liked it a lot but I am...er... budgety so I ordered this to be able to compare.
This bow has a darker, more muted sound than my wood bow, for sure. For me that was lovely and perfect, because my cello has a very bright resonance, which i love, and the... i wouldn't even call it damping... the... darker overtones really worked nicely. In all honesty the tone was basically indistinguishable from the fancier (more expensive) carbon fiber bow I played. I even did semi-scientific recording tests to see if anyone could hear any difference at all. No difference in tone.
This bow feels chunkier (slightly heavy) but is by no means "cheap" heavy. It just isn't an ultra lightweight bow. I have played ultra light weight bows... I don't really like them. So, again, super subjective stuff here.
Lastly the hair is nice and thick and has a beautiful luscious sound, you get that classic very subtle whoosh sound when you change bow directions. I haven't played with a fully haired bow in a long time so it has been heaven.
Ok actually lastly I play a lot a lot of the time and I semi-often play shows in loud venues. Certainly if you need a backup bow or a gig bow this will more than fit the bill. Having destroyed a couple bows playing in clubs when the monitor volume was too low (my rock gigs, not classical heh ;) I can say this would hold up quite well (kind of a general statement re: carbon fiber). Oh and lastly this is a composite I believe, hence the extra weight (right?).
Anyways. Good bow. Me like.
I really want to love this bow, but it’s really disheartening to see what should be a great bow marred by careless finishings.
