Default Replacement stem? Help lol

Hey all,

So my current hookah is 22" (I think) that I got from my local smokeshop and it's served it's purpose thus far, but it's getting worn out and not pulling quite like it used to. I've kinda been upgrading my stuff as I go and I think it's time for another.

My question is that of I get a new stem, say a KM for $60, would it be worth it, versus buying a full blown KM. Does the base have any serious effect on the quality? I have nammor hoses that I really dig. I have the tray and coals/shisha that I like and eveything. I really only need to upgrade the "pulling" quality and stuff. Currently my hookah doesn't have a purge valve either, and it's 2 hoses when I really only want 1. would a new stem fix my problems? If anyone has any reccommendations, it would be most appreciated. I just can't drop 100+ on a new hookah at the moment.

Thanks ,
steve

ive never heard of a hookah getting harder to pull as it gets older. do you not clean it out or get something stuck in stem? but that would be a good idea to get that 72$ km you can also probably sell or trade the km ultimate hose to make it a little cheaper

Just go ahead and pick up a new KM. It'll be worth it, rather than the hassle of trying to fit parts from different companies giving you some "frankenstein" hookah.. Just invest a little extra and get a completed pipe.

i think it would be good to get just the stem jus make sure that your vase has an opening that 1.75 inches...i did the same exact thing, i bought a KM stem from hookahstore.com and then i bought a discount vase from saharasmoke.com for only 4 dollars, and it works great for me... i don't think its a bad idea, i know it would be nice to have a whole brand new one but if your looking to save some money and have the same quality i would go that route....

hey everyone, thanks for the replys.

yea that 72$ km looks good, plus I can grab some natural coals too.

My current hookah is 2ish years old and has been put through alot(parties, spills etc) so thats prob why it's not pulling right. Im pretty good about cleaning it.

thanks for all the help!
