Default warning for KM ultimate Hose!

this hose is bullshit quality..
here is the hose for you thats not familiar with it:
http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...hose.html#tabs

also press the "review" button and u'll notice
"There have been no reviews for this product."
which is NOT entirely true.. haha.. gives u a clue about how theese reviews works at some vendors..

The hose is bad quality... when i got mine the clothings on the hose was torn apart basically.. the stiches are very bad made so..
and this is not the only example Ive heard of people having this problem with this hose..

hmm.. yeah its hard to expect that actually.. I didnt know you should expect something like this and no I live in sweden so its hard to see them in person..
but yeah maybe if they hadnt removed the bad reviews about the hose on their website, then I would have known what to expect..

well when the hose it self gets a bend you will see clearly inside the clothing which in eyes looks like a cheap-ghetto-homemade hose and well the cracks at the tip and bottom of the hose really suck since its not airtight = air for everyone!

Someone elses Km ultimate hose
















posted by BookWorm on another site
The KM ultimate hose, as many of you know, is one of the best pulling and best feeling hoses that one can obtain. However, I've recent;y been having problems with my KMU, where the "handle" near the base was sagging and crimping, causing MAJOR airflow restriction. The problem compounded quickly, and the hose soon became unusable, so I decided to cut the problem handle off.

My first impression was that the handle was made of cardboard, however, I found out that it was made of ROLLED UP SCRAP PAPER. Sea turtles, starfish, random advertisements were rolled up together to make one of the "best" hoses around! On top of that, the hose handle, more than 24 hours after disassembly was still moist, which means that for a regular user, their hose is likely continuously damp and therefore degrading.

Inside, the hose was in fact made of some VERY thin leather, lined with something that looks like gold mylar and a metal spring.

Overall, I am VERY disappointed with this hose, and will NOT be purchasing another, despite how nicely it smoked. At this point I may even become a third HF member to produce their own line of hoses, simply to make a well handled hose that's got a handle that won't fall apart. I may reuse the hose in the construction of prototypes, but that was the best part of the hose by far.

Yup. A lot of hoses are like that. Sadly the moisture running through the hose will eventually loosen everything up and cause the hose to buckle and become soggy. This is especially a problem if water ever touches the hoses. They are not worth spending extra money to get. They are made shoddily from inferior materials and then sold as premium hoses.

Yes I agree. I mean some of the finest things are first crafted from scrap materials and then from there, they are made into higher quality products. I'm sure this has been posted here heaps of times, but check these Syrian wood workers out. Making shisha hose handles from old wood



Description from Wikipedia (I know, I know) --- Wood workers of Damascus,famous for their Mother of Pearl furniture,also called Damascus or Syrian Style,popular with decorators the world over.Jewish, Christian and Moslem craftsmen transmitted the centuries old art to the modern time.The craftsmen are carving wood for the water pipes, widely used for leisurely smoke all over the Ottoman Empire domains.

the hose is not shitty....

you guys forget that this is hose is pretty much hand made.

Ive owned a couple and they've been great. Its still my go to hose and the only hose i will really smoke out of. They're beautiful and have excellent pull.

I will admit, you have to inspect them before buying. Not all come out good. Lucky for me, i got to inspect all the ones i bought.

Still you would think they would have some sort of quality control...
