Default wow.....

While i was scowering the internet, i can across this site. I thought the hookah looked interesting and then i saw the price. I looks like it would b a good hookah but the price is just so high! it looks like it's a screw on type hookah with glass. the base looks neat. Any thoughts?

then while i was looking through the site i came across this little guy, he's only 12 inches and he's 200.00 BUX!- What in the world!?!??!?!

That's just crazy - I wonder why they are charging so freaking much. Very nice hookahs, but still- I can buy a High End Mya for that price.

Well it hard to say looking a picture if a narghile is any good but the Turks do have a pretty decent reputation for quality construction. The price is a bit high for a well made rig with case so would say that it's over priced by about a third if it is a well built rig.

You think those are crazy, if you havent seen this you should...look at the price.

http://www.fumari.com/hookah/silver_hookah.html

There arent even any details. I could understand the price if it was something like silver plated, but its just a regular steel stargate. Rediculous IMO.

***Edit: Just thought I would add this. In a conversation with Fumari I asked about the hookah and they said it had real silver and was not Chinese made. This is apparently one of nly a few ever made and an original. It does not seperate into 3 pieces like the Staregate's do and has glass instead of acrylic in the vase. Supposadly with the craftsmanship , silver the fact that its an original it is actually worth $1000.

Even a silver plated stargate isn't worth that much - wow! Did you look at the other hookahs on that site? Crazy what some people will ask for things - they are probably just "feeding" off the popularity of the Hookah craze. What's scary is if they list it at that price, does anybody buy it at that price? I can't see putting stuff like that up if it's not gonna sell.

i agree or if the stargate was dipped in gold or something i'd understand

But i just couldn't believe my eyes when i saw that little 12 inch for 200.00 i was like wtf

it's crazy what people are filling to pay these days. I wonder how many they've sold.

Oh, they manage to sell them...

I got an aquaintance hooked on kookah (lol) and he went to a head shop to buy one...they gave him some kinda malarky and sold him som 20" chinese hookah for $150 (0_o)
Ridiculous...he thought it was a deal... I can't imagine how many cheap hookahs are sold online each day.

have a look here if you are interested in some traditional Turkish hookahs.... you can always tell a real Turkish hookah by the distinctive windcover.
