they looked pretty similiar to the hones H-S has on their site, but maybe those ones are made crappy?? cause nothing about mine ever said they were bad quality. and the rotation was perfect cause we would have a good amount of people smoke usually and we'd be spread out in a circle.
ya there are some over there that are good quality (iirc there are even KM rotators over in egypt) but remember KMs sell for 20-30ish (some times pushes 40s IIRC) compared to the prices here so, that was still an expensive rig over there probably.
over all it is a sound design its just the execution of the design and the details that make it great or horrid, in fact i may try to make a rotating rig at some point when i try to make a hookah or 2, and i dont mean home brew hookahs i mean blowing my own bases, fabricating very nice stems, etc, hopefully make a bowl or 2 or get some one else to do it and make some really nice washable hoses... but i digress
