Re: For my first hookah...is this good?
ALot of people usually want there piece to be very Aesthetically pleasing and don't go with an Egyptian for this reason. They see them as boring, and not well made, and all around dull to look at and smoke.
Personally, i love Elegance. That's why i chose a JandR Syrian. I mean, full Brass Construction (that you can also get nickel-plated), Elaborate etching/carving designs on the stem, beautiful paint on the vases... It's a no-brainer.
i love Syrian rigs, they are my all around favorite. But i think smoke quality is solely based on th smoker (unless you are using a Chinese aluminum-cored shit-machine).
