i have a paragon and i like it. the only difference, of course, is the designs on the base. the paragon is clear whereas the vortex bases are frosted. the paragon base that i have is clear and blue and has the cris cross pattern in it. kind of like a pineapple.

i like the clear design better, i think. it looks classy. but then again, the frosting looks pretty cool, too.

They will smoke the same, and won't purge, but will take a beating for a long time. Myas are great quality.

One thing, when you get your new rig, check the threads, all of them, for cracks. Also, make sure there are little rubber 0-rings on all of the threads.

They are these black rubber rings that keep the tight seal when the rig is screwed together. Look on the center stem ribbed screw-on parts, you will see the ring, it's black and about half an inch wide.

I'd say both or any of them since they sorta look the same and they smoke the same. If it weren't for the price of MYAs, I'd have a few of them right now along with some Egyptians :P
