Default How much is it worth??

here are the EXACT same Km stems, HC just came out with the commonly known "Precision" stem that John at CH has had for awhile now.

http://www.hookahcompany.com/shamaad..._3294_prd1.htm

http://www.*************.com/shop/pr...749687c91b8085

Yet, there are a couple differences. The glass on the HC style is apparently much higher quality. From reports here at HookahPro, that is not the case with the "Bohemian Czech Nizbor Glass", according to experiences (peeling, easily broken).

The stem itself is wonderful looking, very unique. But is the glass base really worth $50.00 more from Hookahcompany? What do you guys (and gals respectively) think about it?

P.S.: Now i know different vendors have different prices for many reasons, but that is not what i am talking about here, obviously.

Well it is a pretty nice looking vase and it pretty expensive. Its reasonable on why this hookah from H-C costs more b/c of that. Not only that:

"The hand-made Bohemian glass is made in the Czech Republic. It is made with 18K gold leafing and hand painted roses on three sides of the glass. The Czech Republic is known world wide for their quality crystal and high borosilicate glass. Their reputation holds true with this durable crystal clear glass. "

But, I don't think its fair that its priced like that if that vase has been known to break easily, etc.

I'm sure if it didn't have the gold on it, the hookah wouldn't cost so much money

It looks to me that the HC base is not really a KM one, although I COULD be wrong

Gold-plated Czech crystal vase and an updated hose, but then it's topped with one of those shitty bulk made bowls. Could've pimped it out with a phunnel and then maybe....

A Km hose is a Km hose. They only look different. Personally i would prefer functionality over aesthetics in most cases, and with an "all-brass" stem definitely.

It is in fact a KM hose :P

http://www.thehookah.com/khalil-mamo...able-hose.html

Thehookah has the same blue one as H-C

I'm guessing its one of the new Km hoses

Agreed. I have the Precision from John, it's a kick-ass pipe from a reliable, trustworthy and cool vendor. I personally don't think the HC deal worth it, I was just saying that if a vendor wanted to trick out a KM, don't go half-way...

Even though Bohemian vases are beautiful and rare, i don't see why anyone would want one. The stock Km vases look just as nice. I'm gonna go with the Precision from John. if you bought one from john, you could get more than a kilo of AF and the total would still be less than the HC one.

I think the newer ones are washable.
you can tell the difference between them by looking at the handle.
the older ones don't have another puffball, the new ones do.

They aren't washable. It's unfortunately been proven.

I would say no. If you want a better looking vase just get one later for cheaper. There are some great looking vases that won't run you more than 30 bucks.
