Default New to the dark side :o

Hey, now i'm a new member of the dark side. I was in Turkey for a week and i bought 2 syrians The first was my brothers choose, here are some pics:

http://llbutor.hu/adrian/kepek/szir1/3.jpg
http://llbutor.hu/adrian/kepek/szir1/4.jpg

The second one was my choice. I really like this pipe, it's sooooo nice

http://llbutor.hu/adrian/kepek/szir2/5.jpg
http://llbutor.hu/adrian/kepek/szir2/6.jpg

And now i have some questions to other syrian users So what type of bowls should u use for ur syrians? Because as u can see, both of the hookahs only go with syrian type bowls, so i dont know how i can get a phunnel on it for example But when i checked the syrians at CH, i saw that they have similar stem ending as the egyiptian style stems, so u can connect egyiptian style bowls to it. Please write down ur experiences and advice
The other thing is the length of the downstem. I have to put way too mutch water in the base. But i think i will have another one done to it. A wider and longer one.

You will need female fitting bowls and they have been hard to find lately. I may be able to help you out though if you om me.
The second issue is that most Syrians have shoter downstems like yours. It's not taht they don't work, it's just that you need to fill water almost to the neck of the base. I prefer a longer downstem.

amazing rigs!Congratulations! Those are two of the most beautiful Syrians I've seen in a while! Let me know if you need my address so you can send them to me immediately!johns right though, you will need a syrian style bowl.although if you use your imagination, you could fashion a piece to transition from the bowl to the female stem.

Fortunatelly i can buy "female fitting bowls" here too, so if i brake them, it's not a big problem But i think i will look up someone, who can make me a longer and wider downstem, and than everything will be perfect But it is really good now too. I think if i can, i will have made another endig for the upper part of the stem, a male style so i can connect normal bowls to it. I'm thinking on getting a small phunnel and a razan/nammor from the states.

i love Syrians.. and those are 2 beautiful pieces of work.. but yeah the down stem and always be welded and made longer.. but the bowl problem its good that you can find a female bowl.. but like Abu Ronin said use your imagination and i would file that down and make a narrow piece so you can get a normal egyptian on it.. and Congratulations for turning to Team Syrian

I pick up bowls for my Syrian at HookahCompany. The Syrian style white clay is fantastic. My Syrian uses the same bowl fitting as yours. They also have two nice red clay bowls that work nicely.

Yes, do NOT file anything. There are plenty of bowls that fit that stem. Just no phunnel that I know of.

I am totally dedicated to Syrian craftsmanship although I admit I am not a fan of the bowl style they use. What you do is get a brass hose barb at some big home improvement shop that will fit the inner diameter of the stem and a funnel style bowl. I had no problem doing so with my Furats and I think I spent less then $2 to do it.

I...Hate you! Lol jk! But damn am I jealous that you have some beatiful Syrian rigs! :P

Looks like you have a different bowl fitting (male). I know for sure that there are mod accessories to turn it into a female bowl fitting.

^the kind of bowl that can be only used for your hookah.

Oh snaps.

This smokeshop slash liquor store down the street from work had the usual Chinese knock-off hookahs along with some downright gorgeous Syrians.

If I remember right, i thought the mya saray site had a piece that could turn your female piece into a male piece. I might be wrong though.
