The first thing you notice upon picking up this bow is the weight. Extremely light and comfortable to hold younger players need not worry about strains aches or pain from the weight of a wooden bow anymore. Being so light the Primavera Composite bow helps take away any concern about the weight of a wooden bow keeping youngsters confident and assured whilst learning. In terms of the construction the composite mixture of fibres similar to lightweight fibreglass and resin run through the stick of the bow like grains of wood. The resin holds the fibres in place to produce a bow stick that is not only super-light but completely student-proof
Whilst wooden bow's can warp or even snap if left in unstable and adverse temperatures and humidity the Primavera Composite is resistent to these natural fluctuations making it an extremely reliable choice and giving the player complete piece of mind. With composite fibreglass and carbonfibre bows becoming increasingly popular with stringed players the rainforests are also benefiting. Whilst most hardwood bows are traditionally made from Brazilwood and Pernambuco the supply of these woods is diminshing. A composite choice is therefore a very good ecoligical option.
