Default Is it worth the extra money?

I'm looking at buying the 23" syrian from john at *************, but i wonder if it is worth the extra $22 to get the 26" syrian or if i should just go with the KM precision. Any suggestions?

KM Precision in my opinion, they are very high quality, and personally I haven't had an issue yet with my KM.

I'm leaning more towards one of the syrians because the downstem on the KM doesn't come off so i can't fit it into a case and the syrians come with a case.

Syrian downstem is fixed too. They are hand made style, so no threaded pieces. They are also Nours, and they smoke just as well as a KM. They are much sturdier than a KM though, and feel much heavier and come with a carrying case.

I don't believe the downstem comes off on the Syrians John carries. From what I've heard it's a toss up really. The Syrian is fancier looking and made of brass (always a plus), the KM precision has a more mordern look and is not made of brass.

I'd rather get a syrian because they are more sturdier than KMs and they are way more durable.

If you have the money, I'd say go for it

that's correct. the downstems do not come off on the nour syrians, nor do they come w/a case.However,there are syrians availiable that are segmented and can be broken down for storage.
Johns syrians are of the highest quality however, and you should definitely go for the 26"! Trust me! If your gonna sit in front of it and smoke it for a few hours, it's nice to have a rig that is as easy on the eyes as a syrian.Just my opinion. As if everyone didn't already know how I roll!

I would go with the Nour pipe. the tallest one. Khalil Mamoon decided to up the price on all pipes. Plus, the nour pipes look like absolute rape.

The question is....................Is the extra $22 worth it to YOU? You have to decide whats best for you and what you will be happy with. Choose whatever one you like the best and what fits into your budget and have fun smoking it!

I can't compare the 23 to the 26, but I've got the 26 inch Syrian with the clear base, and I have to say it's pretty much the perfect hookah. I don't think you can go wrong with John's Syrians.

I have a KM Precision that I bought from John and can attest that it smokes well and is solid and very sturdy. I prefer the other KM purge valves, but other than that it's a good pipe.

Personally I like KM better though I've never owned a Syrian. I like the style of the KM stems and their appearance much more then any Syrian stem I’ve seen.

As far a being sturdy, I had a 130lbs and 85lbs dog both trample the hell out of my hookah and it ended up without a scratch. My KM On The Rocks stem I could beat someone with.

Either way, you’re not taking the thing into battle; you’re looking for a style that compliments you.

[FONT=&quot]Get the one you like the most honestly, but by all means get the 26 inch.[/FONT]

Dont you own a KM? lol


Back on point, it is all about personal prefernce. Do you want a hookah that is a tad bit taller or do you want a smaller more portable one. At these heights performance won't change no matter the one you decide on.

yeah, she owns a KM. I also said get the syrian. hehe
Km stems are so light, definitely not solid. I heard the syrian stems are completely solid, which makes me want to get one.

Well now that I have a KM Precision I can say that either will do you good. The KM's always smoke great. The Syrians smoke great and add that sweet look. There is not going to be a noticeable difference between the 23" and 26" Syrian. Just to add, the Precision stem is quite solid and heavier than my solid Syrian.

Ha that's what I meant! Syrians seem to look completely solid and heavier compared to KMs. I don't think all KMs are like my Fifa, but my Fifa hookah is pretty light but still sturdy at the same time. I'm happy with this rig since its brass cored because of the fact that KM stopped making brass cored stems a while ago ^_^ Lucky I guess
