Default Are KM's Glass Vases More Fragile than Nour's and MZ's?

Is it me or does KM make significantly weaker Glass Vases (Bases) than other Hookah Brands. I'm not sure if this should be in the product review forum, but it's more of a question than a statement.
I've seen approximately 6 times more KM vases break than Syrian Nours or Egyptian MZs. Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that?

MZ's have nice bases, some do not however. Some Nours have terribly weak bases, like the ones sold at HookahCompany. KM bases are all just one style, one design, and some have weaker spots in them than others, and mroe bubbles, etc. I would say more KM bases break then other bases because more people buy KM's and aren't careful. In the whole time I have been smoking I have not once broken a bowl or base. Icluding 7 KM bases. And now i have a brand new one, and i don't plan on breaking that.

there are like 2 major hookah vase making places in egypt that make the majority of the glass out there. one makes them for kms, el ashreys and others. i forgot the name but it doesn't really matter too much. however ive heard the newly imported km vases are lower quality than the older ones

the vases are bade by blowing glass into moulds, the issue here is that it is hard to keep consistent thickness throughout the piece, especially when you are making something this thick.

depending on what material they use for the moulds it could be causing the glass to be weaker (steel/metal moulds while they last for ever will chill the glass and can give it microscopic cracks which let it break easily)

My KM base is solid as a rock. I don't have any other bases to compare it to though.
