Re: 2 questions from my wife and I
Sorry Fezz, I don't use Egyptian bowls so can't help you with the heat/coal issue. Not all machine made are bad. MYA is machined and would not be one of the top brands if all were junk. As for very heavy stems. I have a KM Precision and it's a brick. It's also VERY unstable because it is so top heavy. If I use the KM hose it came with it topples over. I agree that if it's too light it could be junk, but the same goes for the upper end. Btw that precision smoke great using a Razan. Keep in mind Fezz, all these answers you are getting are purely our own experiences, which are completely different from each others. What works great for me may be garbage for others. Try everything and find out in the end for yourself what works.
