Default WTF is MYA thinking?!?!

Look at this fucked up shit.

[img width=450 height=600]http://www.myasaray.com/hookahforum/341-221-723-107-390-G-AMBER-652-107-MYA-L-S.JPG[/img]

I just dont get it. Is Mya Saray selling out to trend instead of great design and all the hype associated with the quality they have?

Wish I had something positive to say.... but maybe this can be taken constructively......

Faith is lost.......

Yeah, it looks nice except for the "PIMP" and "$." That's embarrassingly awful, if you ask me...

Lol. Sean you are so negative about Mya's new hookahs. Are you sure the glass is different, because we havent heard of anything like that from them?

Regarding the Pimp hookah. Personally I think its beautifull minus the tacky Pimp and $. I agree with you guys, it looks like they took a glitter stick and wrote on the vase with it. Maybe if they can work out a way of making the text look just as machined and standardized as the hookahs it would look better.

As long as we are on the subject of customizing hookahs...what would you guys think of having the option to proffesionally engrave certain models on the stem?

Regards,
Mike

ACTUALLY, I have owned a hookah like this for years

Except instead of the writing being in glitter stick, it's in diamonds

That shit be straight up BEDAZZLED

Oh yeah, and the bowl is made of solid gold with a platinum screen

And I have ivory coals to go with it... and instead of that cloisonne shit in the middle, it has the Hope diamond with a hole drilled through it

And I mix in diamonds with the shisha before I smoke it, it helps with heat distribution

its not the same glass as their old myas, jus by lookign at it you can tell it is different.. you don't have to be a glass expert. Mya did replace my pyramid.. it broke again in a month from the suction of the stem.. this time my friend was standing up and pulled the stem off.. made a popping sounds and the corner blew out. I plan on making a video soon..also the glass is soft., it doesn't have the extra thick glass on the bottom either.. glass that soft should also be atleast 1/4" thick.. eh.. just my opinion that the old myas are about a million times better.. i guess that letter mya gave us about the same quality no matter where they manfactured their hookahs was some kind of joke. I also know two other people who have had trouble with a pyramid and a diva. I have two other "old" style myas which are still running strong after two years of use.. and a little abuse ( brought them on top of mountains) but the pyramid has never made it off the kitchen table but i guess you live and you learn. On another note, I like the stem!.. the thing is fucking sweeet. but i will never buy another mya base unless it is one of the older style (basically everything that is not the diva, octagon, and pyramid.. and the pimp hookah looks like the same glass but i have not seen one up close).. i hear the qts are not as thick as they used to be either..

they bases are cheap.. the stems are quality jus like they have always been. The glass is a softer glass and there isnt a thick bottom.. if you can break a hookah from the suction of the stem than it is a pile of shit

****hookah life******

When you say engrave the stem, do you mean like have "kornkitten" actually etched into the stem?

couple q's.

1. will it be more likely to rust since any finish that was once there, might be gone?
2. will it be smooth? or will it be jagged ( smooth will have less risk of possibly getting a metal shard in the hand?)
3. will it look professional?
4. will it be in cursive, caps, lower case? etc

thanks!

Hey Korn,

Donít hold us to these details, since we are only prospecting the idea right now, but to answer your questions:

1. Engraving will not affect the longevity of the stem. Just like engraving on a stainless steel bracelet or flask.
2. It will be smooth, but visible. Think jewelry or engraved gifts like flasks, key chains, mugs etcÖ
3. Yes, it will be done professionally. We wonít be chiseling away at your hookahs or accessories.
4. There would be multiple fonts and sizes to select from.

Again, donít hold us to these details, but that is a rough estimate of what it would be.

So tell us what you think...

Nice idea hookahlife.

I'd probably order a hookah with an engraved stem.

yeah, I would consider a custom stem too, if it is outta the ordinary ... and in large scale!

Will you only be able to do fonts? or will you be able to do graphics / vector images?

i would be for an engraved hookah. It would even be better for hookah gatherings to know who's is who's by their "log in name/ name" etc. coolness

Thank you for your reply hookahlife. I know you are still working it out, but major questions before i decided if i would be for it or not.
Now that that's out of the way.

When do you think you will know by? and do you have an approx cost? if you dont that's cool just keep us posted.


* and when i asked about the jaggedness/ profesionalism *sp* - i have an engraving tool, and i suck at it lol it's an at home set, and i hate it. lol

Thanks for the replies everyone, we appreciate the input, and we are glad that a majority of you are interested.

Sam,

In the beginning we will probably only do fonts. We may venture into graphics/vector images but that may take some time to work out.

Korn,

We dont have an exact launch date. Not to bore you with details, but launching something like this takes a lot of setup and consideration so it may be months before you see it. We were actually polling members on hookahforum about the cost, it seems like the majority would be willing to pay between $1-3 per letter, so that is probably were the cost would fall.

Hope this helps.

This has to be the stupidest idea ever to hit be associated with our passion. The thing looks like a piece of crap and having pimp placed in big letters on it is cheesy, stupid and vapid. If I wanted to come up with a product designed to make our passion seem fit for gutter filth i'd would offer up something like this rig. This fad of worshiping the filth that exploit women and destroy one of the most wonderful aspects of life makes me sickened and pissed. I will never buy anything from Mya again and I hope that at least some here realize just how vile the whole pimp culture is. Having a wife that worked to help exploited women I I know enough first hand about the subject to say that i can't say publicly what I think should happen to pimps.
