Default Kahlil mamoon for under $60 shipped?

Hey guys, I've been looking at Km's and it seemed like it would be cheaper to essentially pick and choose parts from different vendors, and build an extremely cheap km.

I picked up a Large Bell Vase 2" opening, and base grommet from saharasmoke for $15.09 shipped.

Looking at stems from Hookahstore. I'm assuming ANY KM stem fit that vase.

Are those the only things I need?

It would be under $52.92 for a complete KM single pear shipped, or 59.92 for a Butterfly, Kafe small, or double pear.

If I can I would rather get the Single pear as it's smaller, I'm just worried about tipping with the 2010 KM hose I currently have.

Before I order is there anything else I need?

I'm leaning toward the butterfly and double pear. What is your favorite?

Here's the stems.

Kahlil Mamoon Single Pear


Khalil Mamoon Double Pear

Khalil Mamoon Butterfly

Kahlil Mamoon Kafe

sounds like a good idea when your on a budge! i would think the stem would fit as long as you find the right grommet combo to make everything nice and tight!

just got my km today and you have to lick the grommet to make it go in, but fits perfect! couldnt be happier.

i personally like the butterfly out of those ones. i got the artist americana, trimetal stem.

hope this helps! happy smoking!

i was pretty sure that they used 1.75" openings but you can always use electrical tape

Kafe for design overall, but I prefer it a bit taller. Butterfly for height + design though.

i work for an electrician and its funny that everyone says they use electrical tape for this and that on there hookah, iv havent found a use for it yet. thought the fix it all tape was duct tape, holds the world together

if its a 1.75, hope you can find the right grommet to work, might need to buy a couple to figure it out

LOL! you know what i did the same exact thing! i got the KM Kafae stem from hookahstore.com and then i got the discount bell vase from saharasmoke.com and it's a perfect KM for me. Im diggin the Single Pear and the Kafae (of course since i have one).

Oh and with the Kafae the KM 2010 hose won't tip it over the stem is pretty heavy and with water in the vase that bad boy isn't gonna move. Trust me I know! LOL!

Yea, the large vases are soo big that i think even with the smaller km stems it still shouldnt tip over.

Based on what I have seen in the Newer style KM stems, I would definitely go for the Tri-Metal versions of the pipes, or the higher quality ones. KM had upped there workmanship with the new wave, almost a re-design with their pipes. The downstems are thicker, the welds are cleaner, and the inner core was looking great - at the top of the pipe I saw that the inner core was actually crimped down over the lip of the bowl stem. The flange on the bottom is also smoother now. The hose port is shorter, and much cleaner.

The lower end KM's, like the pears and new generation Butterflys and the Amers don't have anywhere near the same build quality.
