i did one on the glyph and i used to own the engineer, theres a chance those arent brass rigs anymore so i cant speak to their strength anymore.

i liked the engineer's ability to break down, mainly because when my glass base broke, i found a nalgene was the perfect diameter for a temp base at the time, but it was too top heavy so i made it shorter haha...

but as for beauty, the glyph looks better.

they smoked about the same, so its preference on looks i guess man

I belive they are the same, its just a matter of which one looks better to you. I myself like the looks of the Glyph.

Could probably find a better syrian style hookah for the price (AF hookah) but if this is your first one I'd say go for the glyph.

I may be mistaken but I believe the ''engineer'' is common chambered and the ''glyph'' is traditional. Perhaps photo could clarify?

I thought the Glyph was a traditional from PL's review. If the engineer is a plated common I'd say forget it.

The Purging is better on a Traditional than on a common chamber the cleaning of the heart is also a mojor concern with a plated common chamber most of the KM's is traditional chambered draw is easier on the traditional.

Plated common chambers can be a real pain, I'm not sure if either of these two hookah's are, but I own this type of heart on one of my hookahs and it's a real trap for rust to form since it's hard to dry an area you cannot reach.
