Base I have been looking at:


Alternate base (the gold striped one:


I was really trying to match the stem AND the hose, but there really isn't anything black and red out there that isn't tacky looking to me.

Not bad looking but it really doesn't stand out against the stem. I like a bit of contrast in the color scheme. Why not just get a red vase.

Well I like the idea of it being clear. Watching the water/smoke can be somewhat entertaining ha. And I didn't really find a red vase that I liked...

There was this:

With my black base protector, it might work ha, but I wasn't much a fan for the frost.

I'm not a big fan of their shapes, or fancy designs. I like classic bell shapes and simple design.

Hmm... it's kinda fat ha.

I've really driven myself crazy trying to decide. I just can't picture the base I want, so I'm sort of looking for treasure with no map.

I voted on your last thread .. I stand by my recommendations in it.

I do like the clear base with the red accents you have posted here. Reminds me of my KM Amer.

I saw that in your last video. It looks good in real life.

Man, finding the right vase is so damn hard.

EDIT: And what is the Red image of? I can't tell from the photo.

It is kinda like a cross between a pineapple and a crown? Hard to explain, I can take a pic if you want? It is some kinda symbol, someone else may know exactly what it means?

Didn't know there was gold in it too. Hmmm, I like it. I've been talking to hookahcompany.com about possibly selling a vase that isn't in their accessories but in the photos of the hookahs. They said if they had more vases than stems they are shown with they would help me out. I'll have to inquire about this one.

And thanks for the photo.

Tell George we said hi

I like my base .. it is a bit off which contributes to the lean .. but I wouldn't trade it! Like it a lot! Nice amount of frost, gold and color.

And I bet the gold really comes through when there is smoke flowing through there.

Don't you paint? Why not paint the base yourself? Make it look awesome and not tacky

I can't paint worth a damn... I wish I could. All my art is done with ink.
And honestly, I don't think my art would translate well to hookah. I like the traditional look. Another reason I hate all the Ed Hardy hookah shit ha

But if I do get a new vase, I may try to strip the paint off my current and use sharpie oil paint markers to decorate it. Would jsut be worried about it getting wet.

The first vase is available if I want it. The red one is not. So which clear and gold vase should it be from the first post?
The first one has some frost detailing in the top half of the base, not too sure what it is, but hookahcompany has been so accommodating, I don't want to over do it.

Photoshop composites ha:

Not that I wouldn't love to try it.. just would always be paranoid about it getting ruined.
