Default New 29" Nour

So thanks to Lakemonster I found a new place to pick up my hookah stuff. Its called Giza Specialty Foods in Bedford, TX
Anyhow I picked up a 29" Nour with carry case, cobra hose, cleaning kit, and tongs. All this was only $50 and starbuzz 250g only $18. They have nour and chinese hookahs plus the girl behind the counter actually new which ones they each were. There is another 40" with ice chamber I would have liked to snag but it was a bit large for what I wanted.
At this point its WAY better than my old Social Smoke chinese hookah (that cost more by the way..)
Heres the pictures:



and the hose it came with, which i havent tried yet because I washed it out and want it to dry..


Tell me what you think!

Yup, She had a few different Nours. Carrying case even says Nour from karabetian, who after some searching I found to be a supplier of Nour (perhaps older ones but havent found out for sure on that)
Its plated brass Im guessing. I dont know much about Nour but it is the same weight/feel of the brass one next to it that was not plated and you could tell was full brass. It smokes great and I couldnt be happier. But of course all of her prices were low as could be and I can tell they dont mark up near as much as the other local smoke shops who want 24$ for a can of starbuzz and 100+ for who knows what kind of hookahs..

this is a nice rig to be sure. But I should point out that there are 2 manufacturers using the "nour"name. One Egyptian, and the other Syrian. The nours' that you guys are picking up are the Egyptians. The Egyptian nours are a high quality shisha for sure. But shouldn't be confused w/the Syrian rigs that are all the rage these days.

are you sure? karabetian lists them as syrian. if not then o well its still a hell of a hookah for the price and it outsmokes my chinese like no other.

edit- lists them as syrian as told to me by the shopkeeper.. she/her husband order these and told me its a syrian rig, the bag says "Nour compleet nargila by karabetian"
Karabetian is an importer of foods and hookahs/tobacco. If you do a search you should be able to come up with some useful information about them. Either way Im happy with the product and definately the price. Now to see how long it lasts will be the true test.

There is an Egyptian market near my house that has the same nours and I was told they were Egyptian. I suppose it's possible that these are manufactured by the same Syrian company, but if that's the case they're trying REAL hard to produce Egyptian style narghile.
Karbetian is an importer of mid-eastern products, notably Al nakhla, which is Egyptian.

Yeah, I was trying to gather information and a vendor from another site says he gets his Nour rigs from karabetian and believes them to be the same company that produces the other styles of nour. They are supposed to both smoke great (and mine does) so either way Im just gonna chill with my new pipe and enjoy getting a nice smoke finally lol

Dear God! Nice rig! That's not a Syrian design by the looks, but I absolutely love the looks of that thing. 50 bucks.... what a steal.

I did run a little water through and then blew it out with my air compressor. Hopefully i didnt ruin it.

Thanks for the comments!

You are the second person to ask that lol. I think shipping would be expensive though so it would make it less of a good deal. I dont know for sure though.

Dude it would not be that bad... Full brass pipes are hard to find. If it has Lakemonster's seal of approval, I'm all for it. If this is possible, you should lemme know. 70 bucks for a full brass pipe is in no way a bad deal.

For the money it gets my seal.

Ive never had a hookah that I dindt de-bug something... this one included... this one needed a check valve bearing (used a airsoft BB) and I shimmed the base grommet to make a tighter seal.

Good and Cheap, yes. Holy Grail? No.

On a different note.. Shame on folks for not carrying much of the Nour line. They make so many styles but you never see em. Except for Karabetian and Syrian gate and shit like that...

The US gets such a limited offering by retailers...

Mine needed a bb to but she will give u one if u ask lol. Otherwise no it isnt the best in the world but it is WAY better than my old hookah or any others ive seen for sale locally (chinese stuff) especially since its half the price. Eddie hollar at me anytime we can kick it and smoke. Might get yo a$$ in a review vid though lol

update...
well Im having troubles with this thing. It smoked great the first couple times but Im begining to have troubles getting good smoke without it getting harsh or burning the tobacco.. Maybe its the extra air Im pulling or something but I just cant seem to get it to taste right or smoke good without killing the cool smooth smoke..
Im using two quicklights and starbuzz and hookahfreak.. I tried akhla ql's and three kings ql's with the same results. I also tried nour naturals which in my opinion suck and make a HUGE mess so I wont be trying them again. any thoughts? lake hows yours doing?

use less coal and more windcover action (on/off as bowl requires) to manage heat properly.
