Default Econo Mya Gelato

hey guys, I have a chance to buy one of these for 25 bucks, Brand New, shipped.

Is there anyone who has used one of these?

I know they are all aluminum and such, but is it sturdy? Is it all hollow in the middle with the downstem attaching to the top like a Bambino?

How's the glass?

Lemme know if you know.

I believe John looked at carrying these in the store at one time. He may know.

I heard it's a good hookah for the price. Probably just as good as a QT.

my friend has a standard gelato and its a nice hookah, smokes well, the auto seal makes it a little hard to pull but thats normal.

as to it being aluminum, there is a huge anti aluminum thought in the hookah community and IMHO there is no reason to be against it

id jump on that for 25, if you dont really want it get it and ill buy it off you

They are made of cast aluminum and it feels a bit flimsy to me. There is one at my local shop and I have played around with it
Look into this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Acrylic-One-Hose...3286.m20.l1116
I got one myself from the same guy. The stem is cast BRASS and the thing feels like I can charge a tank with it. And it hits great. I think the acrylic would be a better investment. It is authentic MYA but it does not come with tongs. It does come in the OEM box though.

Um I think I may have just found my travel hookah guy. What is the base made out of. That looks nice and is small enough to be portable.

Its $40 outside this deal. The base is acrylic and its an authentic MYA. I have one and it rips. I had to rig it to make it purge well because MYA's cant purge to save their lives!

His store cracks me up. Flavored rolling papers an herb grinder and a hookah. Then he says the hookah is strictly for tobacco. Uhhuh.
