Light years, but as a back up, eh......lavatubes have their flaws, but, for the price, and what it does get right, its not bad.

The LT doesn't suffer from that problem.

Lowboy geez man i wish i was home i would haVE gave you my provari plus some cash. dam dam dam. anyway guess i will wait for Evolve to make some. i dont understand why they arent producing them just doesnt make sense. unless something else in the wind, congrats whoever got lowboys darwin.

Wonder if there will ever be more of them made. Evol doesn't say anything I can find about when there will be more made. They push the Kick. Nothing on the Darwin.. Soon.. Come on.. Nhaler said Real Soon months ago.. ???? Seems like there is a lack of communication to the forum on Darwins and.or availabilty or if they will ever be manufactured again.... Did I miss a memo? lol

Aaaaahhh the natives a restless....lol
I think we will know when they have decided to stop making them, Nhaler would likely pull the info page from the site, and I would think Evolv would make it know if for no other reason than to shut us all up.

Yeah, I gotta agree that if they had decided to stop making them we would have heard about it by now. It's probably more to do with issues of availability of parts or getting parts in a timely manner. Nowadays manufacturers in all walks of industry are doing everything they can to reduce their inventory on-hand and manufacturing only what they need to. The company I work for does it and it ticks me off to no end when the company policy is to use our bearings first, but it takes me a 16-18 week lead time to get something we make right there in-house . . . the same happens when I need OEM parts to repair a machine and the manufacturer can no longer just pull one off their shelf and send it to me, they make it to order instead. I'm sure some of Evolv's suppliers for electronic parts have implemented similar practices.

It could also be a problem getting such a small run of the custom parts made.
This is just a wild guess, take it as such. Before every company right sized they had extra capacity and would welcome a small run, low margin job, like Darwin parts. Now they are sized to service orders of thousands of parts and the margin of a small run isn't worth the hassle. The Kick requires a lot less custom parts, it is a higher volume product and probably has a higher profit margin.

My feeling is, just for what its worth, I think parts availability has been an issue, but I think there is something else happening, don't know what, but to me this smacks of a revision and trying to get it right prior to the roll out, again, just my 2 cents.

Maybe, when Evolv had an interview on the vapeteam's show (when the DNA was coming out) the parts weren't to spec, and had to be sent back and maybe had bad parts sent to them again.... And the long hiatus is due to finding a new manufacturer for those parts. I worked for a smaller sheetmetal shop where everything was rushed with other workers not doing as great as they should have... Causing the customer to constantly send their stuff back and eventually finding another sheetmetal shop lol!

Correct, it kind of underscores, even more so with the telescope mod fiasco, why so many will only buy American made pvs. And like I said, saying it again, even more so after the telescope mod fiasco, if it has the safety features they claim. I'm not one to knee jerk that everything from china is crap automatically, Joytech seems to be a solid company, I'm huge fan of Boge cartos.
