Got it today and love it. ,yes there are visible welds and the painting on the base has some little imperfections but I read the aggrement before buying it and it was very upfront about what to expect. the thing is mint and smokes perfectly. The hose it came with was KM but so wide it was like just breathing put my nammor on it and now I can feel a pull. love it. Got my phunnel on it with my latest craze the 5 second mod http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...t=phunnel+bowl
solved everything I ever hated about the phunnel bowl and I'm very happy with it. Thanks.
