Default Why is the shorter magdy more expensive?

Just browsing around hookah company and I came across this beauty

http://hookahcompany.com/al_afra_hyb..._3056_prd1.htm

notice it has a magdy stem and is 100$ and 28 inches now look at this one

http://hookahcompany.com/horas_c_sta..._2502_prd1.htm

35 inches w/ a magdy stem and its 70$

Who would the taller one be more expensive?

Aren't they like completely different hookahs. Just the same manufacturer? That doesn't mean the taller one should cost more..imo

Because it's a "special edition" hookah. I would still go with the 35'' Horas C thats $70.

True true, I just found it a bit odd

Yeah, if I were to choose to buy one of them I would go for the 35" because it just seems like a better buy. 30 dollars for a shorter and more aesthetically appealing hookah isn't worth it for me. The taller one probably smoke a bit nicer, even if its barely noticeable. Both of them are cool though.

Plus the base that comes with the Horas C is super nice and thick. It's better looking then the plain clear base

I agree, I found that clear base to be a little lame too.

That looks like the same base I saw the other day with a brass core Amer in it. It was also more expensive then it should have been. Those clear bases are way to plain. I guess the figure if we change bases someone will buy it, or maybe the original base broke and they are using a different base.

yeah, that's probably why the the KM hybrid or whatever has some plain base with an amer stem. Funny thing is i remember the KM Amer to only be 70 bucks, and the hybrid is 100

That was before everyone wanted a KM! Once word caught on what a great hookah they are everyone wanted one. So if people want them they will pay more.

Yeah that is the problem, they jack the price, supply and demand .. I got my KM I would probably start looking around for another hookah that is not jacked up in price yet!
