Picked up a new km monarch from South smoke. Right now, thinking how heavy the Hookah is, also gave it a good rinse. Here's the results...

Wondering if this green stuff on the outside is normal?

There is a different color but at the down stem end. Wonder why this is.

a little spot corrosion, nothing to be worried about,should clean off with a little elbow grease, pretty common on a lot of new pipes


There is a different color but at the down stem end. Wonder why this is.
its a brass nut / diffuser on a SS downstem, pretty common nothing to worry about



The base grommet won't fit completely y in the base.
very common , it will fit better with time or ditch it for a turkish style athletic tape grommet





There is some corrosion? In the hose port
not corrosion, the inside is only smoothed out enough for a good fit with the hose, further inside is just unfinneshed brass, just part of the casting process, nothing to worry about




The clay bowl I bought has a huge Crack.
again nothing to worry about it should still work fine, egyptian bowls lack a refined touch.




everything looks pretty standard egyptian quality, its a good rig

I don't see anything wrong with it, that green stuff is normal, if you really think its bothering you wash it every time your cleaning your hookah. That is one HUGE crack on a egy bowl, never seen something like that.

Yet the bowl will work just fine still.

Smoked my monarch today for the first time. Smoked great! I knew I had it in me.

Southsmoke has already shipped me a new bowl. I need to change my review of southsmoke to 9.5/10. They're legit.

Now all left to do is get the vase grommet to fit in base but i won't sweat that so much.

I'm curious to hear thoughts. Do you think its ethical to sell my km halzone that has never worked good for me? I have no use for it and would like to get rid of it if possible. I just don't know if maybe I'm not packing the head right or I haven't cleaned the Hookah the right way?

But i also don't want to rip anyone off by selling them a piece of junk.
