Weight - Crap hookahs are ridiculously light.

Now, some Plated Chambers smoke very well, it's just the pull and cleaning that can be potential problems for a smoker. A Smoker may not like the tighter pull of the plated chamber. Also, it's literally impossible to clean out the entire inside of the heart, no matter how many pipe cleaners you can possibly jam in there.
Simplicity of design. No holes over the heart. Heavy all good. What a shiny metal sheen instead of dull?
