looks like a pretty standard chinese rig to my eyes. I see some corrosion on the top where the threaded part of the stem is. May want to watch out for that.

Can we get a picture of the bottom?

Honestly, if the corrosion isn't too bad it'll probably smoke fine for a while, but I wouldn't expect it to survive regular use for a long period of time. How much did you pay?

Definitely Chinese.

The corrosion is going to both affect the flavor and weaken the metal. The part on the bottom, where the hose and downstem plugs into, is called the chamber. This hookah has what is called a plated common chamber, which means moisture is going to collect in there and there's nothing you can do about it. Eventually it will rust out and need to be replaced.

I don't want to steal your thunder, but honestly, it's a standard el cheapo Chinese pipe. That said, $25 is not bad at all, and it will probably serve you well while you set your sights on a handmade Egyptian or Syrian pipe. That being said, be glad you're not one of the people who paid $50-$100 for this type of pipe new... You dodged a huge bullet there.

Welcome to the forum, you'll learn a lot. I learn stuff everyday.

lol um no not exactly. i have been smoking hookah for many years and have gone through some "generic" hookahs i purchased at local shops. (before i was aware of hookah pro and the tips and advice given here) i chose them off what i thought was common sense. like weight of metal, how well the joints and gaskets looked, etc.

thats why i picked this up. looked like a nice high-end rig to add to my collection.

my main hookah is one i bought from a local lounge's wholesale supplier. The guy usually sells them in bulk to hookah lounges but made an exception for me since im friends with his younger brother.
