In a way I don't mind the wait being that long as it gives me enough time to save the money for itI probably should have looped back and thanked everyone for the input. Dan did reach out and I'm on the list as well. It'll be a nice surprise in a couple of years, lol.
Plenty of text ones in this thread. Unfortunately I dont have an easy way to find them for you. Could try and search ‘review’ but search here isn’t the best. You could read the whole thread, more fun than it sounds.Are there any in depth reviews from anyone other than Troy? No offense to him but he's (admittedly) barely used his nomad and I just want the thoughts of someone who's mastered theirs. Plus, it's another way to live vicariously while I await my own nomad

No, It's the wonderful very dark blackwood all sides. Just the way the light caught it as Dan stated.Great looking combo you have there, especially with the blackwood stem
Your blackwood body's coloration is split that much between both sides?? That's so wild!
No, you’re not missing anything. If you look through the thread you can see some of the design process and pictures of the units. The photos should make it evident they aren’t mass produced or something the maker knocks out in an hour—it’s one guy making them by hand.Hey everybody, I'm new to the thread but I've been following for years! I've been on the wait list since 6/2019, are people actually waiting three years to be contacted or am I missing something?
I am sure you could check with Dan to see which batch you are in.How long did you wait for your Nomad? I'm fine with a long wait, I love the concept enough that I'll drop money on it whenever I get the chance. My 3+ year seems longer than what many others are experiencing, but I may just not have the right understanding of the process.
That's a good idea, just reached out to him via email. Last I heard, he suspected I would most likely be in Batch 2-3 for the Nomad I. I know that changed when he started on the Nomad II but I'm not sure how that converts. Either way, I hope to hear from him soon!I am sure you could check with Dan to see which batch you are in.
I love what you wrote here...especially the part where you speak of it as art. This is a beautiful piece...and you are right it is stunning and nothing visually compares as far as I am concerned. If it is functional and super as you say and I assume that its spectacular in function...The Nomad 2-that would be the only thing I need on my shelf. It is gorgeous!!!!!!!! Its not bulky with any stupid designs...its elegant with the finest wood work. I am excited about being on the list. I just hope I am still alive.The wait has been long for some of us, and I would be prepared for a long wait, but I do think that as Dan finishes off the last of the lingering Nomads and can focus on current batches of Nomad IIs and Toads the wait time should lessen quite a bit. I know he’s worked out better methods of doing a lot of things which should help too.
Still, while these are my top overall portable designs, to avoid frustration/anger/conflict I would recommend people who know they’d be upset with a long wait look elsewhere or keep an eye out for the rare used unit to pop up!
For anyone who can take the wait though, I don’t think there’s another vaporizer out there that compares as a functional piece of art, and in my opinion the size and well thought out design are still among the best out there too.
I may have had one of the longest waits, and I still consider these well worth waiting for!
...what a very nice post because I see your respect towards the art...and not complaining. I agree 100% with you...he is one man creating each inch of that. How friggen impressive. I tell you man when I finally have one...I am going to do a happy dance...The guys is a master craftsman!!!!!!! He seems to love what he does, excels at it, gets paid for it, and has integrity!!!! There's really nothing to dispute. I've been on the wait list for 2+ years and it doesn't bother me one bit. I can get high, enjoy what I have, and some day get a surprise email that it's time to order. Until then, I'll admire everyone's Nomad and keep getting ideas on what my Ideal piece will look like and someday place my order. Until them, I'll be in admiration of everyone fortunate to post their new Nomad!
