Default Is this a big issue? Should I bother?

http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/showt...220#post110220

I just posted a quick, unsmoked review--really hurredly. My question is should I bother talking to hookahcompany about the crack in the threads where the ashtray attaches? I don't want it to become an issue later where it corrodes or gets worse/etc, or is this a nonissue?

Thanks.

PS. the pictures are in the other thread.

The ash tray does have a tilt...maybe 3-4 degrees...not sure if this is the cause. I think the screw on part may be going on at a bit of an angle...its really hard to say

For the money that you paid for that hookah it should be damn near perfect. I'd blow a gasket if a company tried to prison poke me by selling me a damaged hookah for full price. Whatever you do don't smoke from it. Tell them your not happy with that. Let them pawn it off on someone else or take the hit.

Yeah I haven't smoked from it for this reason. I m just one of those suckers that hates complaining when I can't hide behind an e-mail address. But I suppose I will give them a call after I psyche myself up for it...

Be cool don't holler and shout, just explain what's wrong and that you aren't satisfied. If they don't make it right then holler and shout! LOL

Worked up the courage and called. I told them what was wrong, and they are emailing me a shipping label to send it back to them. Once they get it a new one is heading my way. Unfortunately this means I have to wait a week or two. :*((

Better to wait a week or 2 then get stuck with a defective hookah.

Holy cow a crappy Nour? This is the reason I never like to buy threaded hookahs that i am planning on using a lot.

The crack will eventually (after many times screwing in and out) cause the threads to literally break and piece apart, I had it happen to a Mya, same problem. The Tray is a Nour tray, it must just be low quality.

You deserve a better quality tray, a better hose and a not cracked stem, because you are a customer. I hope the replacement is less crappy! HC has some sh!tty trays by the way.

Told ya. As long as you didn't smoke from it George will do good. So what if you have to wait a little while. If you paid top dollar expect top quality. And for how much they are actually getting it for it should be no real hassle.

You sir, are a blasphemer. I'd like to see the data behind the high fail rate.

ORIGIN Middle English : via Old French from ecclesiastical Latin blasphemare ‘reproach, revile, blaspheme,’ from Greek blasphēmein, from blasphēmos ‘evil-speaking.’ Compare with blame .

Yeah one of the reasons I got rid of the 2 I had were because they were separate pieces fit together, and both of them wiggled and to me that's low quality. Madgy Zidan rigs are higher quality than that, only half as sturdy.
