Default KM Hafa Butterfly and AF syrian pros and cons

I am currently debating whether to purchase a KM Hafa or a medium AF syrian from hookah john within the next week. If you own one of these hookahs, feel free to add your two cents to the discussion on the pros and cons of each. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have actually had both at one time or another, and my pick would be the AF, it has a slightly harder draw( very slightly) and purging is a bit harder as well, but its looks way better imo and feels more study and built quality is better as well

KM Hafa
Pros: Brass core (hopefully still), wide gauge, solid construction, good price
Cons: Not a brass downstem, equating to rust. (not bad at all, just not as hearty as brass seems to be when sitting in water for long periods)

AF Syrian
Pros: All brass construction, heavy and solid, wide gauge, sturdy hose port
Cons: Must be cleaned regularly to maintain smokeability (not really a con i guess)


Both are great hookahs, for great prices. I would recommend them both. The purge on both is excellent, on my AF it is awkward at first because of how gentle one needs to blow the smoke out.

my hafa (old) has a brass downstem and inner tube (its 1 piece). very light but super solid.

after seeing foibled's deconstruction of his AF i wouldn't recommend them honestly. the pull on mine is very meh relative to the km.

its up to you how you spend your money. im more satisfied with a cheaper km hafa than the af. plus most vendors sell the hafa with a much better hose.

What it really comes down to is your personal preference. the differences between how the higher quality hookahs smoke is almost negligible. One may have a tighter or wider draw, and one may purge just as well or slightly worse.
