Default Syrian hookah trying to identify

So I was at a local bakery today that sells hookah stuff (the place I go to get Nakhla), and while looking around I spotted a Syrian that is a beaut. Needs polished but still looks great. Any suggestions on what brand it is?

Thats what I was thinking as well. They're asking $120 for it but I could probably get it for $100, what do you guys think?

I remember watching reviews on the AF solids and people said the stems were exactly like a Nour. The one on the right looks like it could be a Nour, but I wouldn't know first hand..

I'd pick up the one on the right. It has the exact same stem as an AF, which is the same as a Nour.

See the resemblance?

I would prefer if mine were a solid color, such as the one in your picture.

Pull the stem out of the base, and see if the port holes are a wide or narrow gauge. According to PL the Nours had a slightly smaller gauge to the holes in comparison to the AF Solids. I've compared as well, and they definitely do. (Not that it's very challenging to open them up) If it has a smaller hole, you'll just have a bit of a tighter draw. Some people prefer a tighter draw, so it's up to you really.

The one in the picture almost has a diffuser looking thing built onto the stem

The one on the right does indeed look like a nour stem. I love my nour. It has treated me very well and will continue to do so for a long time.

yup! the right is a Nour w/an extremely sexy vase. The one one the left I can't ID due to the pic but appears to have a nice lookin' stem.

The one on the left had a brass stem with clear/red plastic looking spacers. I liked the base on the left one better, but def. liked the stem of the one on the right. The one on the right has flowers painted on the base that wasn't quite my cup of tea, so if I get it I'll probably take a razor to it and remove the paint.

left is harder to tell, i forget who makes the ball type syrian chambers...

but the right looks pure nour to me, very similar to what i used to have.

remember, AF stems are really nours...remember this.

Definitely don't pull the flowers off the vase! The gods of Syrian brass will smite you!!!
