Default what do you think of this hookah

I have been looking for a good starter hookah for my customers that are new or don't have the $$$ to go for a $100+ hookah their first time around.
When these guys come to my house I offer them medium to large hookahs, mainly MZ or KM. I go to their house and they have a few of those little red ones that the guy on the right is holding. (that's why yuo see my with my syrian that i brought for myself)
The thing is that little red "espresso" hookah smokes great. He had them for over a year so I switched out the hoses and bowls for him to upkeep. I have been there several times lately and don't have the need to bring my own hookah. It actually hits and works great. I don't even have a complaint when I go there as I used to in the past.
Coincidentally I saw these in the market and was thinking of stocking them. What do you guys think of them? I know if you have a KM you'll slam these, but think about the convenience, the size, and I am telling you from personal experience these work great. Would you buy 1 for $60? I think I'll be stocking them soon.
Your comments will be appreciated.

Looks like a stargate rip off if I do say so myself. Is the whole thing aluminum? Including the downstem? They seem pretty good for a starter although personally I would take my 60 and buy another Mya (especially after that QT I got from you) or spring a little more and grab a brass syrian or KM. Then again I am not just starting out. Kind of mid stride.

Does it come in multiple colors? That is a big hook for new smokers and the casual hookah fan.

Stock them, I'd buy one if you got them in black.
Mahir was telling me the espresso's and stargates hit just about the same.

I was actually going to buy a hookah just like that (but in black) from another site once, but instead I bought a super cheap hookah from some place where I live, it was $20. But anyways it was going to be my first so I think you should stock them, I'm sure they would sell. People buy trendy stuff and it looks trendy. $60 is a good price.

By any chance does the stem come completely apart? Like this (easier to post a pic)


and everything on it is aluminum? if so i have one of the same style (the one in above pic) that I got from a local shop, it smokes GREAT for being an inexpensive hookah...I'd say to stock them if you were thinking about it, I'd be tempted to buy a second one if i hadnt had my eye set on another Mya or a KM next...

I'd say get the real deal Stargates because I know about how bad the knockoffs are. :P

I'm not into 'em though, but I know a lot of people will buy them

well, i just stocked some. it took me awhile to get to like them as I posted up top. I do like them becasue of the weight. Again, this is a beginners hookah (and not necessarily). I'm going to post about it in the vendors section in a bit.

It's relatively easy to set up. It breaks down into many pieces for easy transport and cleaning. It also comes with a box i believe, which makes it SO much easier to travel with.

that looks good IMHO, if the stem is AL and its anodized on the inside i would be up for it (just gota put out a note not to use a hard brush on the inside)

The stem comes completely apart for easy storage, if that's what you're asking.
