Default The Emir hose - 30/$45 worth of hose!?

Any reason why it cost's so much? I mean it looks good an all but I can't justify paying that much for one.

That hose is clearly worth the 30 pounds.

It looks very nice and basically everything that shisha king makes is very good quality. Still, in the end the fact is that it will rust and start tasting bad after 6-9 months so you are better off with a razan type hose which will last for ever and is easy to clean.

In the item description it goes on about being made from "rest resistant" materials and having a protective lining for the metal coil. Does that not mean it's washable?

A water resistant watch is by no means water proof. It's the difference bwtween one you can take out in the rain and one you can go diving with. The basic rule of thumb is unless it says the word "washable" then it is not. What they are saying is that this hose will last a longer time before it starts to deteriorate.

i think this is a bit better quaility then razor.. I hope for that price otherwise it would be sad cus razor is not that good quality..
At least this pipe is 1 piece and no glue that will hold it together.. so that means you can probably rinse it with hot water no problem!

Im gonna say no to this, i mean if it was 20 bucks I'd pay for it, its actually a simple yet attractive hose to me.

I'm sure it's a fine hose, but will last just as long as anything else, because you can't wash the flavors out - the only reason a hose in good aesthetic condition has to be tossed.

I didnt mind flavor staining on my non-washable hoses at all, as long as they are not rusting inside then they are still fine (of course I only smoke really 2-3 flavors). lol, people have gotten by for a long time ie. 100's of years just fine w/o washable hoses. Not everyone's cup of tea though I guess.

i actually think this is a washable hose.. it would be really strange otherwise..

Unlike standard hoses the inner lining is sealed to prevent water leaking past the inner lining which is the main cause of the leather deteriorating"

Natural moisture condenses inside the hose anyways during smoking does it not? I think that is what it protects against.

I do not think its washable, just resistant to natural wear and tear. Like those shirts that repel water, if you go swimming with them they are getting wet regardless.

Water resistant is not the same thing as waterproof. If it was waterproof they would have said waterproof.
