Re: KM Tri-Metal or KM Exotica?
I got my KM tri-metal this past Tuesday from John and I am very pleased. Base is thick,sturdy. Stem is heavy duty. Down tube looks to be stainless steel,however, it could be chrome plated brass but I don't think so. I had a nice sharp burr on the end of stem that goes into the water that I ground and polished off. Other than that it is fine. Smokes good,looks good. I like the looks of the tri-metal over the exotica because the repetitiveness of the "nodes" on the exotica stem body look too busy to me personaly. Also I went with the shorter object is more stable than tall object of same base size thinking. If I or my dogs ever tip over the hookah for any reason onto the carpet,my wife will go ballistic and I will be forbidden to smoke inside.
