Pricing does not always dictate quality. You could pay over $100 and end up with junk or you could pay as little as $49 and end up with a very nice pipe. I have bought two MZ Horus A to prove it. Both are fantastic rigs at a very low cost. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who has bought a pipe from them. I am thinking of picking up one of their smaller rigs since I'm already sold on Sinbad tobacco.
