Default Question about the old H-S Syrians

I have the chance to pick up one of the Syrian hookahs that hookah-shisha used to sell a few years back. The hookah in question is a two hose chiller. I'm not a fan of multi hoses, both functionally and cosmetically. My question is do the hose ports screw on and off, and does it screw on like a typical purge cap? The reason why I'm asking is because I have a spare purge cap that looks very similar to the one on the hookah, the only thing I'd have to do is remove the nickel plating. Basically I want to turn the hookah from a two hose to a double purge, is that possible?

I used to sell those " syrians" from HS. If memory serves, those Trumpet ports DO NOT unscrew ( like on a chinese rig)

Fairly certain by "syrian", HS meant Surian Inspired as opposed to manufactured in Syria.

I figured that from what I read from their old blog posts, they claimed to be made in Jordan. Which would make sense because there hasn't been an actual Syrian made Syrian in a loooooong while

Oh okay well then that's fine then, I thought you were about to tell me they were made in China or something like that. I thought I read somewhere that Romman was coming back.

They just discontinued Romman in 2016. Seems unlikely it'd be back so soon. But i was a fan, so id embrace it happily. I loved their version of Turkish Coffee.

I only had a handful of their flavors so i was never able to form that much of an opinion on it, but should it show up again I'd be down to try more flavors.

They confirmed that it's back in production and i'm pretty sure it's already in stock (but they're only doing 50g packs for now)

Who confirmed that it was back in production? There are a handful of flavors available in 50g from Hookah Wholesalers ( Romman's wholesale site), but im pretty sure thats just the last bits of existing stock. As i said, they just discontinued production towards the middle of 2016. Doubtful that they started producing it again after such a brief hiatus, but i messaged my rep again to get better word.

Who's your info from, Fred?

'So we've got some good news for you! Romman shisha is actually back in production and we should have that flavor, and a lot of other old favorites back in stock within a month or so.
For those who do not know, Romman is the house brand of Hookah-Shisha so we are the only online store where you can pick it up. You should see a lot more of it available in 2017. The first big restock is currently on it's way to us but we don't expect to receive it until closer to Christmas or the 1st of the year. We're just going to have 50g boxes to start with.' from their official account on reddit

Huh, cool. Hope thats the case, it contradicts what the agents on their wholesale side are tellin me, but thats not surprising.
