Default Maybe you guys could lend a hand.

Here's the deal, I need all you chaps' help!!

I want to buy an all brass (natural or white, chrome plated is OK) Syrian. It also has to be all one piece, no parts that unscrew.

The Catch is: I don't want any hookah that is a Nour, from anywhere, including H-S (glyph, engineer, snake twist); one from MagicHookahs, one from either 2 of the banned vendors still active on other forums, one from SyrianGate.com.

If you guys could throw me some links maybe... that would be really cool.

I have found one on Ebay, but a fellow member wanted to purchase it so I don't want to seem like I am snapping up his ideas .

I am getting picky and snobby about my hookahs, as if this hookah is up to par with what I want, I won't be making another hookah purchase.

This is the only one that looks ok, and it doesn't say it's made of brass, even though it kind of looks like it is. But I don't honestly trust Smoking-Hookah fully.. (in regards to their rigs).

the rig that was on ebay was 1 of several availiable.I can't imagine a member being upset about someone across the country having the same one. But keep in mind, the narghile from ebay is extremely low priced and untested. I'm sure this member is aware of the risk in buying from photo only(which I hear he will be doing this fri.,btw)It is also an Al Nawras. Which is the same co. that manufactered the rig you recently baught and are currently trying to sell.
You've disqualified some decent rigs above. And I understand the need to have a quality/unique narghile, but I hope you aren't setting the bar too high.
Of course, I'll look around for ya'. But short of a plane ticket to Damascus, you may be SOL.

Good to hear this member is getting the rig they wanted!!! I am aware it is an Al Nawras, and the one I sold, and currently own, is just not "thick" enough. I want something I can club a seal with!

Good to hear, and as Dunk said, the ones they usually have are Nour style. But if these are anything like the ones on the AF Jordan site... I will need to check em out.

Thank you for the info John!

I have heard it said many times and the stems I've seen are nearly identical to Nour stems.

actually the last gen of af hookahs do look very similar, and now that i think of it you may be right, i have 1 or 2 of those stems laying around, it might be true. however i have seen the new ones, well the samples that came over a few months ago and they are not nours (i am 99% sure)
there will be a few models to choose from. last i heard afonline will have exclusivity on them which is bs on one hand but I understand on the other, oh well.

edit, dunk, i should post a pic of the stem i have, i know i have here before, it's actually the stem i am using in the pic below...or was it my real confirmed nour? now i'm confused

I have heard good things about Ager narghile, although they are rarely (if ever) discussed here. I've been searching for a source for those myself. If I find anything I'll share.

yeah those come along ever so rarely, mostly in B&M shops in random places - I would say California would be the best bet.. haha.
