Re: Is this an MZ?
I really like my MZ. Granted, I have little experience with other brands. It beats the heck out of my first hookah - a generic Chinese pumpkin, I know that much. My understanding is that they aren't as heavy and solid as a KM. With that said, mine has clean welds, the pull is smooth, and I hope to enjoy it for a long time. I guess I'll just have to see if it stands the test of time. I have a Mya QT on its way from John and I'd eventually like to purchase a Syrian hookah. Until then, my MZ is serving me well and has provided many enjoyable sessions. For someone who wants an authentic Egyptian hookah, but can't afford a KM, it's a good option.
