Default AF Hookahs: Solid vs Light

I've seen a few people talk about picking these up. I was wondering if anyone has purchased both or if they know what the real differences are?

I'm in the market for one last really good single smoker and I'm torn between one of these and one of the new KMs I see floating around...

I want someone to do a video review of the light ones and comment on the weight of the light ones. They are taller.

I like the appeal of the "solid" more - though I assume that the Lights have a decent brass core and smoke just the same. You absolutely can't go wrong with the large

I would always go for a solid one as the light feels cheap to me, i have the KM hafa smokes great but feels cheap, whereas the tri-metal smokes exactly the same but feels like a proper hookah

Light feels like an Al Nawras which in my opinion (and also apparently many others) feels cheapo. I'm sure they smoke fine but the heavier ones are just so much cooler. They don't look like aluminum.

al nawras, like many other manufacturers has both high and low end narghile. My 31'' al nawras is to this day the heaviest most solid rig i've ever laid my paws on. However my 28'' is not nearly as solid and well made, but sill smokes like a champ. Let's not pigeon hole this company because afew of their rigs didn't impress.
