Looks like a stargate ripoff. I would steer clear personally, but maybe you'll have some luck with it

Anodized aluminum rip off of the Stargate hookahs. I never liked the looks of the real Stargates, and this one is even more hideous.

its a knock off. taqseem doesnt make stargates in crazy colors like red, purple, green, etc.. if youre going to buy a stargate, go with a real one from nazar hookah or texas hookah.

the stargate is seriously the ak-47 of hookahs:
-easy to maintain
-simple design
-intimidating looks
-packs quite a punch
-solid construction

stargates are definitely quality hookahs. if you do buy one of the chinese knockoffs, dont expect the same quality.

I think it's a stargate knockoff as well. Order one from H-S or from Nazar if you really want to purchase one.

Any fully colored hookah is a chinese rip-off no matter what.

the ones at H-S are a RIP OFF! so overpriced! and why do they label it as a stratus? seriously, go for nazar hookah or texas hookah, their prices are much better than H-S and they have the balls to call it a stargate instead of, "stratus", or, "espresso"

H-S is charging 200$ for a large "stratus".
Texas Hookah is charging 90$ for a large stargate
Nazar Hookah is charging 85$ for a large without case, and 100$ for a large with case
Devil's Playground is charging 80$ for a large "espresso"

id definitely pick nazar hookah because you will probably get your package in 2 days

be sure to check out the reviews section.

PS: i love H-S and im sorry if it sounds like im bashing them but when it comes to the prices for their stratus, very unreasonable.

They name their hookahs, notice all the Myas. They are all named by H-S. And all the Egyptians, and Syrians. And they are actual Stargates, and you can use the price match guarantee as well. TexasHookah has one too though.... So honestly it doesn't matter, if you want one buy one from a vendor that doesn't have it in rainbow colors.

if im going to pay 200$ for a stargate, it better say its a stargate on the site.

about the price match thing, dont they realize that the other sites who sell stargates are selling them way cheaper? it feels like H-S is merely hoping for some idiot to just shell out the 200$ out of ignorance.

Wow. 200 bones? Shit man. I don't think that's worth it in the slightest. Maybe if they had multi hoses.

But you do get more freebies through them... and if you choose the right Romman flavors you'll be set.

ahhh I wouldn't get it. It is a totally chinese knockoff and it'll probably rust on you in a few months or maybe even a few weeks.

Knockoff. If you want to get one, nazarhookah.com has a "real" one. They are nice looking rigs though.

I think they'll be able to negotiate something with you, i dunno. I'd give them a call, or drop an email for them.

Hmmm maybe you should look into other countries that have majors vendors that are closer to Australia than the USA. I know Germany and the UK has some...I dunno if shipping will be less expensive though :P I'm just suggesting stuff ^_^

I would like to clarify something. The Taqseem Stargate hookah is NOT an original design and is itself a Chinese rip-off of a design which originated in the Middle East... so is the Espresso hookah. Fumari has carried the original Silver version of that design before it was ripped off by a Chinese manufacturer and then ripped off by another.

Hookah designs are being ripped off all the time. Many of the Chinese hookahs were based on Syrian models. So just go with what you like and what you feel comfortable with. Both the Stargate and the Espresso are good models if you like that modern look.

The Stargate is Made in China. I am not sure why many people have the misconception that it is not and that is is an original design.

the reason why i would believe that stargates are not made in china is because of the quality of construction. very solid and well built hookah which would be odd for the chinese to make.

I dunno if you ordered yet, but my friend (YA-MEZ on the forum) Ordered a hookah from thehookah last Sunday and it hasn't even be shipped yet. We called them up and said they would mail it out Thursday 3/06 and send us a email with tracking information when they do. We have failed to receive said email as of yet.
