Arcus Quality Designation
The Arcus Müsing series has a slightly different quality designation than the other Arcus lines. The Müsing bows are available in quality levels 2-5, with 5 being the highest quality stick. A Müsing level 5 is comparable, in terms of performance and tone, to an M or P level 6. (That's not a typo - you're getting a considerable boost in performance at a lower price!) The Müsing 4 would compare to an M or P level 5, etc.
