Carbon Fiber Bow ID? Yizhak Schotten's Bow....

Recommended Posts

**UPDATE** I wrote him about this bow and he says it is a Francois Gaulard. So, not CF (haha). I am still very curious about the strange carbon-fiber-looking area over the frog. Any ideas?

That's................a protective cover on the butt.

Where can we get those?  Or was it made from a plastic notebook binding? :huh:

If I recall correctly, it's a patterned shelf paper (plastic with an adhesive). Patterned or plain, it's pretty standard fare for the protection of old bows when leather or lizard isn't used to do the same thing.

Yes, that’s exactly what I recall seeing on that bow.
