Default About Sahara Smoke Hookahs

Just wondering are they good? Dont see much reviews about it so I was hoping you guys would know. I understand they look very nice and different but I'm just curious about how they smoke. Anyone tell me about these hookahs?

I can't comment on their hookahs but the company is terrible.
I placed one order from them and got my order almost 2 weeks late when I paid for a certain shipping method.
The customer service was rude and said all they could do was let me ship it back for a refund when it arrived, they wouldn't even refund me a bit for shipping even though they shipped it by a slower method.
And when it finally did arrive some shisha was leaking.

I'm not surprised that people say their hookahs rust.

I purchased a medium hookah from SS in July '09. After eight months of regular use. The stem is now rusting. I' am now switching to a km hookah.

Yeah, unless you want to replace some glass with something more interesting, just avoid them. You might get lucky and get a decent hookah from them, but you'd be much safer just getting a Khalil Mamoon. Basically they all smoke great and last a long time. All you have to do is pick which one you think looks best.

I've smoked out of a SS hookah that my friend owns for a few months now and there are some pro's and con's...

-Pro: These things have awesome glass bases that are thick durable and great looking. Go to their website and take a look at some of them, it's like looking into the windows of a candy shop with every flavor.
-Pro: When set up right these are great pipes to smoke from. Using a vortex bowl, defuser, and a wide gauge razzon/nammor style hose on one of these pipes will get you some great smoke in flavor and size.
-Pro: The pull is heavy or "tight" which some smokers love.
-Pro: They are cheaper in almost all cases that a KM or Some of he other bigger name 26''+ hookahs.

-Con: Zinc oxydation can occur on some of their pipes. They coat them to cut down on the rusting of the pipe but after awhile it will grow these white crystals. Not exactly the WORST thing in the world, but not very appealing and it's some what of a bitch to clean out of the stem.
-Con: Like most people have said there is always the chance (or reality) of rusting. You can cut down on this by getting a SS hookah that has a zinc coating, or working super hard to clean it.
-Con: That tight pull tat some people like... well some people hate it as well.
-Con: For 30-50 dollars more you could own a KM or AF hookah so the price may not be all that "reasonable".

These are just the observations I have made with a Sahara Smoke Hookah and while I hope it helps, I would look into what others have said.I'm sure a lot of them have had tons of more face time with these hookah's and will be the one's to set you straight.

Cheers
