Default Furat Hookah Review

I was excited to open my new Furat Hookah today. I ordered it last Wednesday and I received it today. Decent communication, he did send me one e-mail saying it was shipped. I called Furat the day I ordered the hookah and he assured me I was getting a high quality hand-made hookah. When I opened the box today, I pulled out a nice looking hookah. I tried putting it togehter but it was not air tight at all. The stem is very wobbly in the base and the base is too small for it's size. I could get the hookah to stand up but the weight of the hose pulled it back down. The hookah is a very low quality piece that might be handmade but it will not last more than a few months. If you want a pretty shelf ornament than it is nice but it is definatley not usable everyday.

What you posted here is fine. Its not a catual review but more of a complain. From your description it sounds like the grommets are missing... You should contact Furat.

it came with grommets but the way the hookah is built, grommets can't fix. I did contact him and he was bust so he is supposed to call me back. I will post some follow ups to let everyone know how customer service is.

I've order from him twice and have been delighted with both rigs I got. I'd suggest pestering him a bit and if you can't get it to work demand a refund. I am sorry to hear things didn't work out.

I got the champaign ( the little 16") rig and a ice chamber. Remember that Furat's stuff comes with a Syrian head so you'll need a brass hose barb to make his stuff work with Egyptian (normal style) bowls.

Yeah that's pretty odd... So it the base grommet too smal? You can buy those cool Mya Expandable/Stackable grommets.

The hookah looks like the pics from the website, but it's not just the grommets. The base is too small for the hookah, so the stems shakes and falls out or causes the whole hookah to fall over. I tried different grommets I have here and it doesn't matter how snug the fit is, it is still so shakey that it falls or comes apart from the base.
This is a pic of it. http://furathookahs.com/hookah%20new%202/images/Picture%20002.jpg

a local deli I go to carries some of the same furat rigs, and yes, they look grat but the construction leaves much to be desired.However, I'm sure this is not the case with all his rigs.
