Default The 17" Bracket Hookah

So i think you would run into some serious issues actually smoking this hookah, especially since the vase is acrylic. But it does look pretty cool.

I've been wondering what good those hookahs are and what's the advantage over other hookahs.
Cuz they're cheap(ish) in my local hookah store.

Doesn't look like it has much of an advantage. Just a different look. To be honest, it looks kinda cheap to me

There are so many issues with this hookah. The heat being under the vase seems like it would heat up the water. I don't think you would be able to use other types of bowls with this hookah. The volume of water is very small and I would imagine the smoke would get harsh quickly. Also the draw is going to be very restricted. And for 60 dollars there are some very high quality hookahs

I see lots of possible problems here. Melted acrylic, tipping and a hose clogged from drippy tobacco to just name a couple off the top of my head.

I also forgot to mention that I don't image the hose that connects the bowl and the base is washable so unlike a traditional stem there is no way to clean it

It does look pretty neat but having the center of gravity higher? I can see it tipping.

Yet another ugly Chinese bastardization of the nargile's ancient and noble culture. Joy.

I don't like that simply because Hookahs are ment to be pieces of art. I love how beautiful some hookahs can be.
I'll stick with my regular hookah.

Welcome to Hookah Pro! You might catch some flak for making this your first post - I know I would have maybe introduced myself but take some time and explore the forums...

my opinion, dont get a bracket hookah, but if we can not steer you away from this, consider this one

Idiots keep re-inventing the goddamn wheel.

Look at a KM. Functionally, it's perfect. Simple, effective, to the point. Two tubes, a valve, a bowl, and a bottle. Whole thing's made of glass and metal. The perfect child of 500 years of hookah history. Kinda hard to improve on that (As the Chinese show us time and time again.)

At least the coals aren't under an acrylic base this time, but the acrylic base is slanted...Who in the world comes up with these asinine designs?

The hose looks like it came from AutoZone.
