unbreakable no, but they are more resistant to shattering.

I wouldn't buy one, but I see where having a hard to break hookah would be handy for ham handed clutzes! LOL

does acrylic crack when you put ice in the base? i heard that the acrylic on the stargate breaks from having ice in it. just wondering if this is true or not.

Is it tough? I'm about to find out.
I just ordered a clearance acrylic from H-S.
If it smokes good, I will be keeping it as my travel hookah.

Doubt it, I don't think that low of a temperature could crack acrylic.

They will get non-stop shit on here....

But I will fight for my Acrylic to the end. It's invincible, it gets left out all week with water and tobacco in it in the freezing cold. It hasn't shown any signs of rust, or even tarnish for that matter. It's easy as pie to clean, it unscrews completely. It's BRASS, and chrome plated, so rust is never a fear of mine.

They can be Modded to hold up to 4 hoses, and have a wider downstem then other Myas.

i don't know why people don't like them, i guess they just got unlucky. I got mine from H-S, which i recommend. i think people see the Acrylic and are like "Eww fuck that, i bet it sucks" but obviously they are noobs and don't know that Mya's are all basically mixed and matched hookahs, and i would say the Acrylic is the best stem quality.

yea i almost thought the same about acrylics untill i went to the hookah bar and all they use is acrylics and i noticed how good they actually were, which led me to buy my girlfriends acrylic and it has not given us anything less than perfection, this also goes for my new acrylic that i just got, and now that i have two nammor hoses coming for both of them, they are going to be unstopable! lol.

I was talking of the Stem. Not the base. The stem is a tank. It's never let me down. Ever. It's heavy, thick, and durable. It's solid brass for God's sake. Basically....

Pshaw.

I live in Utah, Greatest Snow on Earth, but in order to get that snow it's about 15-20 degrees in the Winter at 11 pm. I ALWAYS put Ice in my Acrylic base, ALWAYS, and then proceeded to sit in that freezing cold temperature mentioned above for 2 hours. THEN, i brought the Acrylic straight inside and washed it out with hot water.

This was 3 nights a week, for 3 months.
