Hmm, i didnt know if this was a normal thing so i didnt complain about it, but now that you mention the ball bearings, im just wondering if i was sold a used stem
In all honesty dude, if I was you, I'd get in contat with hookah shisha. Because if it smells like it's been used, then it's probably because it has in fact been used. I would never even think that a reputable vendor like HS would advertise and sell a brand new hookah, only to send out a used one to the customer. You are right, the ballbearings should be new and in perfect condition, and the hookah or any other accesories of it shouldn't smell like anything else but air. Call them up before you use it and tell them the difficulty you've been having. They're also a member of this forum, so you can also send them a message with pics showing the rusted ballbearings. I'm sure they'll take care of you...
