Re: If you had $185
I've owned several Myas ( the high end ones as well as the junky ones) and I would strongly recommend against buying them. I've never owned one that did not develop serious problems in under a year and frankly they are over priced. I don't have any experience with H-S Syrians but all the Syrians I do own are from J & R and furathookahs.com and all of them have been fantastic. The higher quality Egyptians ( Al Ashrey, KM, Shisha King & MZ) are also fantastic. You should note that H-S sells "Syrians" that are from Lebanon and "Egyptians" that are from Jordan.
If you care about human rights you should not get stuff from China for the simple reason that you'll be supporting state owned companies and communism as well as slavery.
