well the majority of the people here say that they are reliable, and that they are way sexier (which i agree with, it's way better looking then my [broken] razan sultan).
if it breaks, it's no problem. i will do the hot glue thing and/or the clear tubing thing. i would have done this with my sultan but it was already so modded out when the glue came off of the top. it had electrical tape on 2 grommets, and the "skin" part of the handle unraveled randomly at one point. and when the handle fell off of the hose i just said forget it, it's lived its life and now it's going to hell.
so that's it, i'm ordering a red one this sunday. along with a shit ton of nakhla. ^.^
mizo watermelon, peach, grape, guava...and sheherezade cinnamon, and sweet melon. i would get jasmine too but i think john is out of it...
