Default My new rig!

Over the weekend I splashed out some cash and purchased myself a new rig. It's not an expensive MZ or KM but for R260 (around $34) it's an awesome 31" Egyptian which smokes like a champ! The price for one of these is usually R300 ($40) but "the guy" gave me a nice discount since I'm such a loyal customer.

I REALLY wanted to get myself an MZ but after much searching around I had to accept the fact that with international shipping it would cost me more for shipping than the price of the actual Hookah which I quite honestly won't tolerate.

All-in-all I'm extremely happy with my purchase! Now I just need to invest in a Nammor and some Exotica's...

Here are some pics:

Nice man! Good looking rig. Let us all know how it smokes. I hope you enjoy it. I don't own a nammour so I can't really say anything, but Exoticas are legit! You won't be dissappointed.

Fantastic looking machine. And as for having a MZ or KM, no biggie. My no name Syrian smokes perfectly and gets amazing clouds and flavor without any fancy hoses or bowls. Exoticas are great and the Nammor will only increase the performance.

Thanks for the positive comments guys. It's nice to see that my "no-name" can attract some attention considering the other rigs it has to compete with around here

So far this thing smokes great...thick fluffy clouds to say the least. I'll try to post some pics up soon.

Yeah I've heard nothing but praises for the Exotica's and according to most Hookah lovers a Nammor or Razan is a must-have as it pretty much owns all other stock hoses in terms of performance.

It is a nice change of pace to see a no name. I am starting to get tired of all the Egyptians floatin' around :P. It is safe to say that your hookah is unique.

sound like a steal, too. A good looking egyption rig(@ about 30-32" i guess) for $34 is atleast SWEET. you might wanna change those hoses. i own a couple of them and all i can say is "i've never had a worse hose". A Nammor is well worth the 20+ bucks.

It's most likely an MZ, just the ash catcher isn't. There are a lot of Generic snap-on trays out there.

I dont think its an MZ or something. All the egyprian rigs are similar. Mine looks exactly like an MZ i saw somewhere (not sure whether it was legit).
Here is one that looks identical to this ( an MZ)

It doesnt have to be a brand to be awesome. My pharoah served me well of two year for almost everyday and still rocks.
ENJOY YOUR RIG PAL

Cheers

Either way the ash tray looks pretty cool. I wouldn't mind a deep one with those cool little designs in the bottom. Mine is some plain syrian tray. I still love it non the less . It has a made in Syria sticker too lol.

I think it may be an MZ knock off as I have one and it smokes just as good as an MZ. I'm assuming hitokiri is not in the US so maybe where he is they don't have a huge selection. Anyways, he got it at a good price, good job. Let's us know how it smokes.

My friend (mylkshake) on the forums has a MZ Horas C that has a vase kinda like that. The white base really makes it look more "pure" if you will. It looks really nice. I myself prefer me a clear base though.

I love clear bases. I peeled off almost all the filmy blue crap on my chinese base so i could see if it was smoking good or not.

That is actually quite a beautiful rig, no big deal on not being able to get and MZ. That thing looks like it well constructed and will smoke well.

What a beautiful rig! I'm seriously thinking that it is an MZ, its just that the ashtray doesn't look like one from an MZ....Maybe the vendor just switched up some parts?

Well it has that bolt-type thing at the bottom end of the stem.

You assume correctly my good man. South African citizen here. I purchase all my Hookah stuff from a guy who has a stall at a local flea market so he knows me well which is why he always gives me better prices. One thing I can say for sure is that all his Hookahs, whether knock-offs or not, are made in Egypt because all the hookah boxes say "made in Egypt" on them.
