Aye, I've got the acrylic mini mya. I basically bought it because it was one of the cheapest I could find, and wasn't sure I'd smoke often enough to justify a really nice hookah. I don't have any real complaints, other than the purging of course. I'll probably do that straw mod sometime though.
ya that is the only substantial down side of it but once you get your heat management down you will not need to purge much if ever
