ah yes, my local shop has one of those exact hookahs and it felt very very cheap to me. those round balls i guess ill call them on the stem are really cheap and will probably break with 1 tip over. The base is wicked sweet but i just thought it felt way to cheap.

As nice looking as they are for that price I'd try one if I was in the market for a new hookah. If the stem gets damaged you could by a second one and have a spare vase for what you'd less than you'd pay for a tricked out Chinese hookah (MYA) not nearly as pretty or tall.

33 bucks? Not bad at all, can't hurt to try it. Just make sure it doesn't tip over, problem solved =)

BTW There is a discount code for this vendor, so it would be $49 before the discount.

Yeha it's Chinese crap. So it will smoke alright maybe, but after 10 smokes you will only get 1 taste, and that taste is crap. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a common chamber either.

They look really crappy. I would rather spend enough to actually enjoy the moassel I buy then get stuck with some Chinese made junk and save a little.

What you have to understand is that in Egypt, Syria and China cost usually under 10 bucks if you get them at the source. Added costs make them cost what we are used to.
