Default Re: Do you think Hookahs is a temporary trend or the beginning of the futur

I still think that we'll see narghile stuff having the same downturn as the cigar market did back in the early '90s. back then cigars were huge and literally hundreds of brands popped up and all sorts of people were shelling out 10 & 15 bucks for a smoke that should have cost 5. Cigars are nowheres near as trendy as they once were but because the market has always been upscale it managed a lot better then some expected. Narghiles are clearly not an upscale market ( the endless see of Chinese junk proves as much) so when the main market (20 somethings) fade I expect that will really hurt the whole thing.
