Amazing 17 inch Hookah by StarBuzz. The Stem is heavy stainless steel with a screw in down stem. The vase is heavy duty StarBuzz Signature glass shaped like a pyramid. The hose 68 inches in length with metal tips. This will beat out any hookah in it’s class. In addition, we tested it in our ware house against KM hookahs and the smoke produced was the same. I was never a fan of Chinese hookahs until I tried this. The reason for this is the wide gauge down stem.
