I know I feel like such a newbie saying this, but I thought hookahs, nargilems, argilees, etc were the same thing? :P lol

I have what is 'supposed' to be the Chinese version of the 440. The thing is, other than the color of the base, it's the exact same thing. Even the flower pattern on the base.
I have the sneaky feeling they all come from the same place.
I like the case, though. I might see if I can get one of those.

Nargilem is one of the more popular Turkish makes and while I don't have one i've used them and they are pretty good. However, they are pretty pricey so i'd just assume get a well built Syrian.

I HIGLY doubt that brand is better than Mya's. Everytime someone tries to copy Mya, it ends up being crap with leaks. I'm skeptical on this one, but you can always purchase it and find out for us . Personally, I wouldn't risk it. 90% of the time, going by what people say, brings bad experiences. That's why I like to try things on my own so I can find out for myself.

Nargilem is not copying anyone. If you get the chance to examine one up close you'll that it is very different. Nargilem stuff is well designed and built but I am just not sure they worth what they cost in the states.

I don't know what Mya you owned/tried, but mine smokes like a dream and performs better than any Egyptian I've tried to date. It also outperformed my friends Syrian. Let me guess, you had/tried the QT right?

The prices very all over the play from a low of about 30-70USD in Turkey and middle East to two and a half times that Germany which is not suprising given the VAT and costs in general there.

Nargilem is a very popular brand in Germany and they have a big distro network so everyone knows them. They certainly are better built then Mya but I personally prefer more traditional rigs.

If you buy one, do a side-by-side comparison with the 'Chinese' version.
(I'm still inclined to think they're the same thing.)

While Mya is better then other Chinese made stuff that i've tried my luck with that brand has not been good at all. I've owned cheap stuff like the QT and the higher end stuff like the Gyro and tend to not last long. Truthfully, given that so many great rigs are to be had for around $100 I simply can't see why I should risk my hard earned money on something made by slave labour in the PRC.

Not just that, but if people stop supporting Chinese exports, they will have to up their quality. Too many products are being imported into the US from China with lead paint and other ways to cut corners...

Stop our demand and they will improve their supply...

Nargilem is a Hookah Maker based out of Turkey.

They make some sturdy hookahs. And their cases are awesome...nice sturdy straps and what not. I wouldn'y jump to the gun with the whole MYA impersonator case. They are actually very distinct hookahs.

I would recommend it based on what I know of the company itself.

But as for if I knew if anyone had one......that I don't.

I would say go for it.....like I always say "There's always room for hookah"

I currently know of no one on this side of the pond who carries Nargilem. Any chance you might sometime in the future?

I would certainly be interested.

I can look into it again....from what I remember it was kinda pricey.....but I will double check.
