the vase looks solid and I like the fact that it has a removeable defuser, but the stem appears to be just another flimsey chinese model. The chains and arylicic inlay are abit much for me.
I also doubt it is made in afghanistan considering at this point in time, the only things being produced in Afghanistan are banned substances and shaheeds.
But because John is a friend, I'm inclined to believe him at his word regarding performance.

"shaheeds" lol, you crack me up AR.
Anyways, as an update, I haven't bought this or stocked it yet. I need to work on price. It's a great rig and I was excited and shot the video as soon as I got it. My cost may be along the lines of a KM but I don't think it's as good. But then again MYA's are more expensive and I don't think they are worth it but they do sell as well. The only reason I have been lagging is when I got this there were no KM's in the market, now there are. Timing is everything. I may stock a few but I think the price needs to be right. This shouldn't be $100+ but with the way the economy is going I bet the imprter paid a good price too.
About the color, there are supposed to be blue's and reds and I assume they gave me the yellow as it's a sample.
The glass is just awesome.
I got a message from another fellow vendor (who shall remain nameless) to be careful and protect my rep and use it for a couple of weeks first in case it breaks down.
Again, I think this is a great hookah but the price needs to be right. I'll be back soon regarding this.
Thanks for all of the input.
John
btw, mods, i just realized that as I am typing this, this post may not be in the vendors section and if you need to move my post or have me move it please advise (not trying to beak rules)

The heart on mine filled with gunk and rusted something shocking over about 2 months.

Sorry not the julam..judging by the hose port and purge valve it's of the same manufacture as my first hookah. Which was the one I mentioned - I had thought about it more in my head than I ended up writing down haha.

The stem looks cheap; although all the extras are very positive. In all, I don't think I would pay more then 40 dollars for that, let alone go in to KM territory.

you do understand that the raw material glass that is in that is probably at least 10 bucks so after the stem and all the other stuff 40 bucks is probably at or maybe even below the whole sale price

Well lets see Cheap or no the aluminum shouldn't rust and is a very durable metal. The common chamber heart I believe it was said doesn't sound like a selling point to me but then I have only recently learned that there is something other than a traditional way to do that. It is supposed to come with a phunnel right so that should help limit the gunk build up I should think. All in all I would say machined or not and cheap or not John I would definitely put it through the ringer before putting it out there. It could end up being another MYA type thing or it could be complete crap. Though it does look pretty cool. It sure seemed to smoke pretty well.

I think it looks pretty nice but frankly I won't buy an aluminum rig and I am worried about the stem being so light as that generally means it's not very durable.

i really dont get why people here hate Aluminum stems, just glad we dont have people that really look into the type of glass that is used on the vases or else we would have arguments over borosillica glass vs soda-lime glass

AL is cheaper yes but it doesnt mean it is a worse material, and frankly you can do more with it more easily and it can be treated to not corrode at all much easier than brass or steel
