Default Worth the money?

What do you guys think of this hookah. Its chinese, but i really dig the look, it was cheap, and it smokes amazing. Do you guys think it will last? And do you think its worth the 35 bucks?

Oh and, is the fact that the stem is aluminum and detachable detrimental in any significant way?

Well i already got it so it to late to change my mind. I was just trying to get some opinions, so thank you.

I smoked a mya at a hookah lounge and i must tell you it does not hit as well as this. Plus i wanted a taller one, for both decorative purposes, and because i read somewhere that taller hookahs deliver less Co2 to the smoker. And ya i was going for a 2 hose one.

i like the vase but the stem is prolly cheap....it wont last to long i mean its cool if your just testing the waters to see if you actually like smoking hookah before you get a more costly one but other than that i would pass

It will start smelling wierd with normal use. I don;t know why, don't ask, but every Chinese rig I have smelled always has some odd dirty metal smell! I just noticed it... but it's true. Personally I would stick with Stainless steel and go with a hookah from Hookah-Shisha, like the Ivory line.

Like someone should have said in one of these posts, but they didn't which is very odd, you get what you pay for when it comes to hookahs.

Whoever told you that don't know what they're talking about.
What a taller hookah does do is help cool the smoke more.

Throw that shit out and get yourself a real hookah!

Maybe you can find something in the For Sale/Trade section of this forum?
