Default > Fake Mya, But Maybe This Is A Good Thing

ok, so I have a local middle eastern store close to me, I went in a few weeks ago to buy (what I thought to be) a Mya qt, their credit card machine was down so I told them I would come back. When I came back the hookah (blue base silver stem) was sold. he asked me if I wanted him to order some more in, I told him to go for it and I would be back. about a week later I came back and picked out my hookah, but I realized quickly it was no QT; it was a Majanda (see http://www.kingofhookah.com/Results.tpl?rn...9&startat=1 to find out what I mean if you want). I figured screw it, this was only 29 dollars and looked to be nice. I took it home and packed a bowl of pink lemonade, I have to say this little SOB smokes like a damn champ. so I have to ask, anyone else had any experience with these and can tell me if I'm screwed long term, or maybe I found a great deal =)

its a knockoff, so my guess is it wont last as long as an authentic mya. but it looks like its pretty close to the real deal. and from what you said it smokes like one too lol. for 30 bucks thats not bad, but be warned its prolly not lasting long

Its a knockoff of the MYA Qt..Lol I've seen these at a local shop and I wouldn't doubt it if they charged $50 since everything else in there is fake and overpriced

I wouldn't doubt that it smoked good! I'd get it, but I'm worried about rusting since a lot of chinese knock offs rust very easily

there are some different MYA QT fakes
we've tested some of them for our website, and the fakes havent been worse, than the original
but it isnt profitable, cuz the original MYA QT costs 35€ and the fakes about 28-30€

LOL it doesn't matter if it's fake or not, just as long as it rips like a chainsaw, and hits like a champ

That stem will never rust, because it's aluminum. It might corrode however.

Lol that is what my first hookah said (it was this chinese made hookah called the "Green Blade. If you wanna see what it is, its on thehookah.com)

It was made of aluminum...But it started to rust on the head on the stem only after a few uses and washes

to be literal, aluminum cannot rust. it can oxidize, and sometimes when it oxidizes, it will strengthen the aluminum. the aluminum oxide with usually be white.

@op
if you like the fake mya qt, i wouldn't worry about it. hit it, enjoy it, and love it.

Awsome thanks you just eased my mind. if you dont mind though, in the case that it starts to oxidize, what do i do, sand it off?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium_oxide

Quote:
Health and medical applications include it as a material in hip replacements,[3] in water filters (derived water treatment chemicals such as aluminium sulfate, aluminium chlorohydrate and sodium aluminate, are one of the few methods available to filter water-soluble fluorides out of water), and even in toothpaste formulations.
i would say that if it's safe to use in hip replacements and toothpaste, i wouldn't worry about it too much...
