Default Unknown Syrian

I got some pictures from a buddy of mine of a narghile which is apparently a heavy, cast item which I am not familiar with. Perhaps someone can ID it?

Also, I am pretty hot on the idea of getting one of those rigs with the glass spheres along the stem but I am worried that they will easily break and that such a rig will be impossible to clean. If anyone has any experience with those sorts of narghiles let me know.

I can't get the photos to upload, some sort of file error. Still, anyone have any experience with the glass globes on the shaft style rigs i'd like to hear your opinion on them.

AR, I have seen that one and have access to it, but, are you sure that's a good syrian?
I bet hajo is talking about something else. If you need info on that pm me, but I as a vendor/consumer wasn't impressed with it other than its looks, it's very pretty....

I'm not at all familiar w/the quality of this shisha, but it looks reasonably solid. I was just wondering if the glass spheres were similar to those in which he is reffering.
This is an interesting rig however. The hose port and purge are syrian, the core is Egyptian in appearance( although some syrians have similar cores) and the stem has Lebanese/Syrian written all over it.

Yes, that is the sort of thing I am talking about when I say glass globes on the stem ( I know that an Arabic term exists for that design but I can't recall it). So, does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?

AMEN to that! KM's have a bazillion narghiles to choose from but Syrians are pretty much held down. However, I just wanted to tell everyone that Syrians > KM. Thank you

Interesting comments. I have seen a few Al Nawras but I am not familiar enough with heir products to ID them. Apparently this narghile is very heavy and solidly cast and the glass is flawless. I would never buy anything on ebay due to far to many bad experiences and a mountain of negative comments from more people then I can recall. Most of the dealers on ebay are dishonest and it's vary rare I hear about anything ebay i'd want to look at.

Beyond that I suppose that no one here has any experience with the glass globe style Syrians? I love the look but I am concerned about breakage and wondering if they are possible to clean.

that's a beautiful rig but looks more Nour than Al Nawras to me. As far as the glass globes go, the down stem usually run directly through the sphere so it should be no different than cleaning any other shisha.
