Default Decisions, Decisions

Today was payday and my wife has been looking at a base Hookah John has had up since I ordered my Silk Butterfly. To be honest, the base has grown on me and I think I like it. So deciding on if I want to order it today or not. Now comes my decision. Obviously, you can't just have a base, you need a stem to go with it, which is where I need help. I have 5 stems I narrowed down to, but if you have suggestions I want to see.

Temsaah Butterfly Stem


Blue Caramana Stem

KM Butterfly High Stem

KM Kafae Large Stem

KM King Tut Stem Blue

These are all stems that she likes, and it won't be ordered for another couple of weeks to a month, so there is time. Just want to figure out what I should get before I order. Hoping to get everything in before our anniversary, which is the same day the contests ends. That way, just in case I don't win, and I don't care if I do because everyone has been doing great, I am covered for our anniversary!

I'd go with the 1st or 3rd, maybe the 5th. (The 5th one would look great with my base, fits in with the theme big time.)

I'm gonna say the Kafae stem for a couple of reasons. The first reason is, it's a solid sturdy chunk o' brass that has a nice nickel finish and the second reason is that you can use it as a whoopin' stick in case of emergency.

I personally don't care for any of them, LOL! But if I had to choose I guess it would be the tut stem just because it's kind of unique.

I'm open to suggestions as well. So if you know one, or a few, you like, post it. I'm always open to others opinions. To me, stem shopping is hard! So many choices and it is always a toss up on which to pick.

If you click on the words 'the base' it will take you to Johns site. Thought about the black pear and am not a fan of the chiller stems. I figured a solid stem or one of the pears would look good with it. If I got to choose it would be this one:

Of course, it is not pretty enough to her, and since it is for her, I can't get that one.

3rd one or 4th one. I like the stem on the 3rd one but I like the hose port design on the 4th.

Honestly, i would just pick a stem from hookah john... any one you like (maybe an americana?).... and i am sure he would swap out the vase with the one you want. John is the man like that.

Thanks guys! Seems to be a pretty split decision between 2, luckily they are 2 I like as well. Will be making the final decision in a week or 2, will let you know what I pick. So if you have suggestions between now and then, let me know!

I don't usually like sphere/bulb stems, but that Temsaah doesn't look bad at all.
