You should send your post to Khalil Mamoon, Magdy Zidan, Temsah, or any other manufacturer, and see if you get a response. My guess will be no.

Now on the Syrian hookah issue, I do think the outer stems look great but many models are not so great when you examine the inner working. The AF ones are really good and solid but with Syrian hookahs it's a bit hit and miss. If you hit consider yourself lucky.
My thought's on trendy Egyptian shishas are well known. I just want to send John a shout out for having the grapes to call a spade a spade. It's a rare bit of honesty, and even rarer coming from a vendor!
