I do know that John has proven that it smokes wonderfully. It also comes with a diffuser, phunnel and a wide-gauge washable hose so the producers obviously have been doing their research..
I think it comes with the Phunnel but the hose wasn't anything special. He was negotiating the price down so he could offer it with their special hose. Kind of a Razan style deal. In other words he is negotiating some wicked upgrades on it. I don't really understand the point of the diffuser but it is cool that it comes with it. Anyway for me I couldn't see spending $120 on a hookah but I suppose if I had it to spend I might think differently.
