Default Look what I found for $30



It's about 24" tall. It appears to be chinese, but there are no signs of rust and it seals nicely. For $30, it's not a bad find if you ask me!

I have no idea. They're definitely some kind of metal, even on the outside. But the silver is a paint, a lot of which has been scraped off the handles.

It looks like the older Hookah-Shisha egytpians. All I can say is that they are MUCH better than the newer ones.

Oh, no. I already bought it. I found it on craigslist and after establishing that it sealed just went ahead and bought it.

If that rig is Chinese then that's the best knock-off of an Egyptian I've ever seen. My guess is it's an off-brand Egyptian.

That seems to be what everyone is saying on the forum these days, but I disagree.

Yes I suppose, but a $30 buy warrants a future purchase.

Yeah, the hoses are the weakest of the whole thing. They work, but they're kind of short and are made out of a strange material. But everything else is decent.
