Default Are these Nours?

I have just visited the homepage of a local hookah shop and found these.
I'm really curious if what you think if these? On the page it says these hookahs are syrian and some are from Dubai. Is it possible that any of these is actually a Nour? I'm mostly interested in the first one.
And if not, are there any other thrustworthy syrian brands?

I m not an expert by any means, so I wouldn't put much weight in my statements here.

But they do look nour-esque. The trays look generic and crappy however.

Probably a good solid rig either way.

They definitely look syrian/nour to me. I've actually seen the far left one in person at Nimbus hookah lounge. Very solid rig, it'd probably be a worthy investment!

The only thing that looks non-nour-esque to me is where the stem meets the vase....at the heart.....

which actually leads me to believe they probably aren't nours...but a close relative...some other syrian.

But once again...i m more of an egyptian man :P

They look great but they are not Nour hookahs. If you like the look then go into the shop and hold them. Figure out if they are solid and well made. Check the welds and check the heart.

definitely syrian style - the two left have stems similar to my nour, and the one on the right has components of it. they look nice to me
