Good morning Dave,

I am not a user of a bow saw, but I agree with TravisH regarding depth of reach and the tension issue.Balance is also an issue, the feel in the hand, especially if using the handle because the weight will work against you & might cause difficulty following a line.

What ever you determine via your shop experimentations, post the results, I’m curious to see what you find out.
