Re: Common Chamber?
Anything Hand-made is in the form of a Traditional Chamber (not common/open). Anything made by machine (alot of Syrians, ALL Chinese hookahs) are Common/Open chamber.
When it comes to Egyptian Vs. Syrian, it is a preference thing in terms of smoke. Do you want an effortless wide open pull that get's you a huge volume quickly? or do you want a rig with a pull that forces you to pull slowly, giving you the same volume stated above at a sower speed, but letting you "enjoy" the smoke much more.
