Default Looking into a new hookah...

My first hookah was a Sahara Smoke Gypsy. At first it was amazing, beat out my friend's KM in flavor, clouds, everything, but now its rusted REALLY bad, and thinking back it was only good for about a month, then it started tasting bad and rusting. I doubt I'll be buying a hookah from them again. So that was a waste of $70. Now im looking for a new one that wont have the same problems, so i dont waste my money again. Anyone know how well this one is?

http://hookahcompany.com/sun_beetle_..._4158_prd1.htm

its brass and stainless so it shouldnt have the rusting problem of my SS, but i was wondering if anyone knew how it smokes? I also like the colors, Im a big Beatles fan and the colors are very psychedelic lol.

Thanks in advance for any help. I'd like to get a new one before i move out for college in about 3 weeks.

That looks sick. Its an Egyptian so it should smoke well. I like the full brass stem.

I know HC is a trusted vendor here in HP so after checking out HJ first (none there in my price range really) i checked HC second and came across this. Just hoping the trust HP has for HC is founded in fact. (wow a lot of abbreviations with H's in them there lol)

There a great vendor. Ordered from them a while back, everything was in perfect condition. I would definitely buy from them again. They went out of there way to fit my hookah with the base and hose I wanted, and even set it up and took pictures for me. A big thumbs up to them.

Now i feel foolish for paying twice as much for my first hookah...theyre even about the same size, so i cant get why it was so expensive. Oh well, we learn from our mistakes.

For what it's worth, stainless can rust. Keep it dry when you're not using it and it shouldn't be a problem.
