Curious, anybody have any info on Browning Nomad II...

Thanks for any info...

It's pretty much the same as the Safari II except for the woods used in the riser. The Safari generally had Rosewood. Also, some of the Nomads had wedges rather than overlays but the later models had tip overlays. Not sure what you're wanting to know. They are great shooters and handle well in the hand. If you want to know about price, well that's a condition thing and we are in a slow market right now. The bow itself is as good as any made in that era and better than some.

Some of those old Safari IIs had a high wrist. I don't know about the Nomads. I don't really care for a high wrist.

The grips varied from medium to medium high. I've never seen a completely high wrist model. They are comfortable to me but everyone is a bit different.

Those look a lot more comfortable than the early one I owned. I couldn't figure it out. I finally gave it to Cueman. It might have been me just frustrated with the bow.

It wasn't just you, Tony! The wrist on this Safari was way too high for my liking...so despite the beautiful wood, it's no longer with me.

Speaking of safari II, here is the one Tony sent after filing and sanding the grip to my liking and a refinish. Just got a new string for it and have to put on a side plate and rest and go shoot it.

And to get back to the topic, I should add that I've never seen a Nomad that had such a high grip.

My Safari

If you watch the auctions, you can find the medium wrist models. Feel and fit is everything, so I understand that some folks don't like the high wrist risers. For those who like them, you probably can't pry them out of their fingers.

George speaks truth...the Safari II that I have now is a very shootable medium-wrist grip. We now return you to your "Browning Nomad" thread, heheh...

I've owned a couple of them. Good bows. Smooth and pretty efficient. They like slimmer shaft diameters

A Nomad II with Tip wedges would be a nice bow to have.
