Default Hookah purchase confusion

So I am planning to acquire a second hookah. I'm going for about 20" (a good size for where I live) and have already selected one online and need only make the purchase. My problem is that I have discovered a Mediterranean store five minutes from my house which sells hookahs and accessories as well as regional food and the like. So I saw a hookah there which is very similar to the one I want to get online, and a similar price (if you include the shipping). I think to myself here I can look at the product before buying it, but the hookahs available are vague in style and I can't really tell what make most of them are. Should I go with the hookah that I can see and touch but is nondescript or go with the online option and buy something with a brand name and forum support? Any advice would be most helpful.

I always try and support the locals if possible, especially if this is your second hookah. However, I would check the hookah out before buying it and make sure the quality is up to par with your standards. If you're going for a brand name, it should say on the hookah, so keep an eye out for that... if you don't like what you see buy online!

It depends, go visit the retailer and ask questions. If they don't know or won't answer, then I would say go for the online retailer. Normally if they list it as "such-n-such" then it will be that. Not saying that the local won't be any good - I've gotten killer deals on shisha locally and the vendor knew little to nothing about it.
