Personally, I am a big supporter of Syrian made narghiles since the solid, machined brass is simply the best material I know of for the application. I also have found that they purge better, have a somewhat tighter draw and cooler smoke. Syrian glass tends to have less air pockets and a higher borosilicate content which makes for a heavier and more durable base.

Bottom line is that better Egyptian stuff is great but nothing can beat a high quality Syrian.
