It can also get annoying when setting it up because if some threads have worn down it might not align up properly and it might not be air tight as a result hence pretty much a useless/very crappy smoke in the long run.

Just to let you know I've had 5 MYAs and only 1 is still standing and the threads are waring down. I think the really small MYAs are better because they are more sturdy and they smoke surprisingly very very if you really need an ultra portable hookah I'd go with one of those... another thing about MYAs the briefcase things that come with the larger ones are a complete joke...such poor craftsmanship.

I definitely agree with this, I'm going to get a 1 piece stem for my next hookah for this reason. My current 3 year old chinese knockoff is a 2 piece stem and the threads wore down over a year ago. I use a piece of tin foil around the stems to help seal it, but it certainly isn't perfect.
