honestly, i am not a fan of AF rigs, atleast not the current generation, the older ones looked better. Some of the Nour/Thabet Younis rigs on HJ are really nice, and TheHookah has some nice syrians as well.

the 2 other people I know of on here that got a Thabet Younis did not like theirs because something was broke on their stem before it even got to them.

my thabet younis was actually nice and solid, i guess i got the good one...its a good rig, actually think its better than my glyph.

I love the 28" AF but its not made anymore, if you see my hookah tray review, you can see how i have mine setup (large dish vase, clear, from SS - the gold dish vase - a white caravan hose) and it looks beautiful. I love it...I think the AF rigs are all nice, i just dont like the af logo on it, and do not like the silver gold and blue look personally so i changed it.

as for other rigs, consider the syrian chiller that H-S sells, i was thinking about one myself.

I'm not as big of a fan of the shorter nours... honestly do some shopping, dont count out ebay, and look around, throw up rigs you find and if i cant say anything about it, hajo and abu ronin can.

I was one of the ones that got a busted Thabet Yunis rig, the second stem john sent was good I like it, but the soldering on the top around the purge valve wasnt the best. But it wasn't anything I couldn't fix. I love my AF rig though...nice solid heavy stem.

It seems that everybody like their AF rigs. My question is how does the stem fits into the vase? I mean is it a screw on vase or a regular one?

Thank u so much guys for your replies !!

Nour is AF, and AF is the best on the market by far. If you are going Syrian, you definitely need to go for a AF rig.

Check for leaks when you first get it and don't get it too wet when washing. The stem pieces aren't soldered together so water will get inside the heart if you wet it enough.

honestly wet it as much as you want, just make sure to towel dry the stem when you're done each time so its cleaner longer....as for water leaking i dont think everyone has that issue

Thunder, welcome to the family my friend! (Godfather theme plays) ... I always recommend people to get Nour Syrians but most of the time they never listen to me *sigh*. I think you will be pleased with your purchase. The medium sized AF Nour is very nice. Please let us all know how things turn out for you .

I'm just simply going to say, the AF rigs are absolutely phenomena. I have no complaints about how it smokes.
