that's one seductive syrian Vic! Be sure to let us know what you think of the AF cocos. I've been curious about those.

okay, I broke it in with a bowl of AF Golden Grape, Razan Sultan Hose, small phunnel, 3 AF Coconut coals

- Pull was phenomenal. Huge clouds. No sign of leaks. It out-nour'd my nour
- Purge was strong
- Downstem could be a little longer, but it isn't too short as some feared
- Coals are okay. Cheaper than Coconara's ($7). Smelled and smoked up a little while lighting, but couldn't detect any aftertaste. Ash wasn't "sandy" like cocos

I'll write up a review and post more pics, but all-in-all I'd say it looks and smokes great

$115 w/free shipping. Maybe a little pricey for some, but the free shipping took some of the sting out of it.

Yes, ordered by phone. Spoke with Megan. Ordered last Sunday, got it today. The stem is not as heavy as my other nours, but its not a lightweight either. One interesting note, it came packed in an AF box fully assembled. Haven't seen that one before

Huh, My model is 8 pounds of solid brass.

Heavier than any hookah I have had except for one Syrian rig...

Vegasvic's model is different the the older ones, the heart is much different.

The smaller AF has a different heart than the larger AF, that's curious..

my mid-size 28" AF hookah ships out thursday. i ordered through Sam/Adnrew. If you call about it and end up ordering one, let them know you are a part of hookahpro forum before while you are giving out your shipping information. i can't tell you why, but just trust me. and look into their phunnel/washable hose upgrade.

Im saying brass is better than steel here. The steel is thin and feels cheaper than the brass. Thats what I was getting at.

The hearts are slightly different in design, the other hear i have doesnt have the hashed etching on the heart oddly enough but its the same otherwise.

And you can defend your KM as much as you'd like to, but if you'd try this, you'd know it definitely smokes better.
