I've had plenty of experience with shisha. My downfall comes in experience with hookahs and accessories. I love my Sahara - packed up with a Vortex bowl of HF Scooby Snack or HH Peach/7 Spice, puffing smoke clouds bigger than me.
You mentioned buying a Razan... Do you like them better than Nammors?
On the downstems or down shaft core ... the syrians are almost always going to be brass
The egyptians are going to be stainless steal.. stainless steal with nickel plating, brass, cooper
But you also might think about getting a Mya Qt if you want a cheap Great hookah...
But razan and nammor are going to be the same hose
and I would also really recommend a small tangiers phunnel bowl for better air flow
