How does it compare, in terms of feel, to your "homage to Sartory" Lipkins bow?
This one is slightly heavier and it's a strong stick. I don't know how MY bow would be if it were different. Sue did play it before rounding the stick and I heard it was great that way as well, just heavier. This other bow IS different than mine however. Also, it has a brown/black type of hair mix as well. That too changes the sound so I don't have a good test basis between the two.
