Default Modern Nour downstem widths

So I'm comparing 2 Nour hookahs at the moment attempting to make up my mind on which one to get. This one or This one. Anyway, thats not my question to all of you, my question is as follows:

Do you believe that both modern Nour Hookahs have the same stem width?

I personally believe that it would make sense that they would, and i sent them and email to ask but they never got back to me and are now closed for the weekend. I had planned to order tomorrow but without knowing, i cant decide, lol.

I don't know, Someone said the downstem on the first one was a tad narrow in my other thread, but in Pixelz review of the second one it looked wide enough for me, so i was wondering if people thought they would be the same.

Fire away.

If that's the case then I would again assume that probably they're the same size on both models then?

I knew someone would bring up the idea of a KM, lol i was just waiting, but no, i like the nour. I think i'll pair it with a caravan hose, that should ensure a good pull. thanks for the suggestion though, i'll probably get a km next.

Not necessarily. You'll notice that each rig has a different port. The first has a standard Syrian adapter type port and the second rig has a port that appears to be similar to those found on many Egyptian shisha. This indicates that there's a decent chance that the gauge of each port will differ.

For the most part it's a god idea to go with the more traditional hose port. Most of them do not suffer from the taper that modern Egyptian style hose ports do. I have hookahs with both and the more traditional port is better in my opinion.

Hose ports on Nours vary, my AF rig's port is larger than my old nours port, the only other difference beside the color

the stem gauges are mostly all the same.
