I made this review if you don'r remember: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/video...ls&videoid=243
Well, I tried it with some buddies last night again and after a while we noticed that smoke seemed to be coming out of the handle, and it tasted awful and smelled like burning plastic, which leads me to believe there is metal connected throughout the dome area down to the handle which is just covered in plastic, and as it gets hotter, it starts to melt!
So I guess my review changes from "hmm it's kinda neat" to "nuke it from orbit with fire."
HOWEVER it still makes an AWESOME coal heater. Since you flip it upside down there's more open space for the heat to escape from so you don't have to worry about shit melting... still 50bux though so your milage may vary
