Default Nour Hookah

Hi, I'm getting a new hookah for christmas, and I've decided to get a Nour from The Hookah.com. I'm kind of stuck trying to make a decision between the 28" Karakol (http://www.thehookah.com/nour-karakol-brass-syrian-hookah-28-inch.html) and the 27" Screw-on (http://www.thehookah.com/nour-screw-...h-27-inch.html).

What do you guys think?

I prefer the karakol based solely on aesthetics.

nours fit perfectly in their vase, unlike my km which takes some elbow grease.

the stem on the screw fit looks nice, but i prefer a brass look personally

the screw fit will take longer to go in lol, get the karakol

Yeah...usually for me when the KM grommets are really snug, its not the getting in thats the problem...its the getting out when the water has dried a bit.

I really want to get a nour as well, I like the nour you have photolinger over the karakol.

Well at least the nour you showed in your recent video, I suppose you could have more than one.

My collection is definitely lacking a nour syrian influence.

les from THS might be getting some in soon as well.

hookah company has nours too, but kinda expensive and not full nours

I personally like the second one purely on Aesthetics. I love the look of that base.

The bowl on top of this masterpiece is a premium Tangiers Medium Hookah Head. The 75 inch wide gauge hose is a standard Khalil Mamoon with attached plastic end units.
I guess I found the one you were talking about haha. Tangiers phunnel on top I guess.


We kinda thread-jacked. Oopsies!

To be honest, I have never tried Nour hookahs but I hate anything that has a golden color. such as golden watches and pens and cars and hookah and hoses,..etc.

So, I prefer the silver one.

Cheers

I would defiantly go with the karakol. The only negative I have heard about the brass is that they require cleaning more often.. I am not sure why. Maybe Photolinger can give us some deatils on that as he mentioned it in his last vid.

I own the first one and it's my favorite. I really like the second one as well. I would buy it. I have a screw in hookah and it works fine with a good seal. I hope you enjoy which ever you buy but I just wanted to give a bit of my opinion on the first model

-smoke VERY well.
-Looks beautiful
-Does require care so it does not discolor
-Great construction.
-nice classic design.

Got mine from John.
