Yes I have, this is what I got from the sticky:

One of the things it said about Egyptian is the good purge (which is why i referenced it)
So now that you say that purge isn't very accurate, it's those two.
(That's what I understood from the sticky)
Oh and I forgot, pull too. But really most of the pull is based on user set up (proper packing, hose, water, etc)
Like I said in that post, I can't really differentiate metals, shape should be easy to copy, and can't really test out pull when buying a hookah... am I missing something?
