Introduction

Howdy.

Name's Josh. I'm fairly new to the hookah world. I've smoked from a friends hookah a few times a year for the past 2 years. Have recently been to a lounge here in Arizona. I've decided that I really enjoy it and went out and purchased my own last week. I think I may have bought a poorly made hookah, however it gets the job done. I figure I will see how much I enojy it at home and maybe in 6 months or so I can purhcase a nicer one.

After reading around on this site, I feel this is a cheap Chinese made pipe. As you can see in the picture, the hose on the left, the metal ring is barely visible sitting half down it where it should be attached to the end where it connects to the stem. The bowl doesn't sit flush, nor do the hoses.

So per Incubsratm recommendation in the [url="http://www.hookahforum.com/topic/20398-ebay-hookah-finds/page__st__700"]Ebay Thread[/url] I purchased 24" Syrian pipe found [url="http://cgi.ebay.com/HOOKAH-LARGE-24-SYRIAN-HAND-MADE-SHISHA-HOOKA-PIPE-/270709646974?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&NHT (Non-Hookah Tobacco)=item3f078d667e#ht_734wt_1141"]here.[/url]

Not only does is it more appealing to the eye, but the Syrian aspect brings me back to my roots as thats where my grandparents are from.

Yep, that's a generic Chinese rig. You'll be MUCH happier with the Nawras. GREAT pickup!
