Default Razan hose...poor quality...broken tip?

Ok here's the deal, got my Razan sultan from John with my order about a week ago. When I took it out of the bag, the hose itself seemed decent quality but the tip wasn't perfect. Slight imperfections etc. I can get over that pretty easy. But today I barely tapped it on my desk and it broke in two right along one of the carved grooves. I admit it was my bad for letting it hit the desk, but it's acrylic and would think it could stand more than that. I'm serious when I say it was just a tap. Then I went to pull out the broken tip from the hose, and the grommet came out with it, the glue just gave way. Easy fix with some hot glue, but not the point.

Normally these things wouldn't bother me too much if the hose was a year old. But it's a week old and been used only a few times. I've got no problem buying a new tip, but I would think for a $25 hose the tip would be a bit more durable than that.

So anybody else notice this with Razan? Where can I get a tip only, if it comes down to having to buy a whole new hose, is Nammor any different, or does it have the same kind of tip?

Yeah, it's shitty for sure, at least I have the hose that John usually sends with the MZ's as a backup. If I had no extras I would be pretty sad right now.

I like the looks of the glass tips and was planning on one in the future, waiting to see the selection. But they are still a month or so out from distribution.

Nope never stepped on, it's always hung up when not using it. When I'm smoking in the computer room the rig sits next to my desk. I was going to sit the hose on the rig, when not in use during a session I rest the handle in the "v" of the stem/hoseport, as I went to put it on there I tapped my desk with it, then proceeded to pick up one half from the floor and look at the other in disbelief.

weird..maybe it got a fracture during shipping or something and the tap caused it break. i have 2 nammor hoses, never had any problems with the tips breaking or anything, and i pretty much manhandle them when i clean them.

heres a couple things you can do:
1. since its only been a week, i'd say ask for a replacement tip
2. buy one of those glass tips once orders start being taken
3. http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/p...idproduct=3976

in the meantime while you wait for a new tip or something, i'd suggest gluing the tip back together, just make sure the glue doesn't clog the hose [maybe you can put a bic pen through it while it dries, then remove it once the glue dries]

the same thing happened with my first nammor hose, it fell out of the hose port and hit the table (not the tip, the insert end) a drop of 10 inches max. snapped it right in half. I got a replacement and have been fine since.

Acrylic is not a strong material.

i would not suggest buying a glass tip if you are planning on dropping it on your desk again. Lol. kidding.

just get your hands on some cyanoacrylate. I used it to fix the same issue I had with a nammor. Now I have that one, the second new nammor they sent me to replace that one and a razan I bought later.

I dont plan on dropping it anymore I promise. Currently trying to rig up a complex system of pulleys a la Wile E. Coyote, so the hose just kinda floats in front of my face.
