Re: Bout to give up....
Yeah....the aluminum inner core on my MYA has degraded so much that its breaking off in little flecks. I intend to get myself a piece of brass tubing and thread it as a replacement when I have the time.
I know my price is low.... but like I say .... thats the price Im accustomed to. I know most online vendors prices on such hookahs are around $30 more..... but they need to have the price set there as hookah is the source of income only. The places I shop are basically middle eastern grocers that are making profits on other goods as well and arent needing to markup the product so much.
On fact. I do have an extra vase I could jab a new stem in.... but it would have to be getting a great deal on a stem alone.
