And as far as the high center of gravity, most hookahs that I have seen have that problem.
One obvious design flaw is that neither of those hoses are washable.While you could replace the hose you smoke out of with a washable hose, it does not appear that the hose that connects your bowl to your base is interchangeable with other hoses (specifically washable ones). This will lead to a ghosted hose and the ruin of your sessions rather quickly. I would be surprised if the hose between the bowl and the base lasted 10 sessions before some type of ghosting was present. Especially if you burn a bowl and harsh burnt smoke is passed through it.
