Comment: AB605 is a noticeable upgrade from AB600 because the bowmaker uses a better quality stick that draws well, plays louder, and is more flexible for added advantage in more advanced techniques. In addition, AB605 has a higher quality frog.
A note about the two kinds of windings these bows might have. Usage is about 50-50 with either Silver or "Fischbein." The deciding factor is weight. When Durrschmidt has an AB605 quality stick that needs little additional weight to correct balance, he uses the whale bone lapping (Fischbein). If the stick needs more weight to correctly balance the stick, he uses silver wire. Available for In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial. Call 800-246-2277.
