Re: PERFORMANCE HOOKAH
I would avoid that rig, in most cases that stem is mediocre. There are much better Syrian rigs out there.
If you like the look of Egyptians, look at stuff like Khalil Mamoon, and Temsah.
Heba Diffusers don't seem to do much but tighten the pull. Not much of a point to them. they won't filter anything out. The point of them, according to the manufacturer, is to make a bunch of tiny bubbles, giving more surface area with which the water can "humidify" the smoke. With a heba on or off, there's no noticeable smoke quality difference, nor flavor.
