If getting a high quality hookah means spending $700 dollars then so be it, I would be up for that if it ensured a quality product.
I guess when you buy a "New Car" you should get it with as minimal imperfections. If it was advertised as a "Used Car" then some dents, scratches are expected. Nothing against John, I am more concerned with KM and now I know better. And knowing is half the battle, lol!
Well clearly you are unhappy and I get that. My KMs all are dent/defect free and give great sessions and that has been the experience that pretty much everyone i've known has had. Still, it seems that recent KM purchases have had a lot of trouble in the aesthetic side of things so sure, stay clear of KMs. What I will suggest is checking out whats around it terms of Syrian rigs. Plenty of very nice, reasonably priced narghiles from Syria are on the market and personally I prefer Syrian stuff to Egyptian. If you have any questions just ask
