Screw-Top or Drop-in?
Just curious, what design do you guys prefer? I've only used drop-in stems and they have worked great for me but now I'm looking at buying a new MYA, and I see the ones I like (possibly the Cono) are screw-tops. Anyone have any reviews on a screw-top? thanks!
Well, I can tell you you are far less likely to have someone break your base if you have one. You can actually pick a screw base hookah up by the stem to carry it and you don't have to worry about someone who doesn't know any better try to pick it up to move it by the stem and have the base fall and break. What's not to love?
Possible downsides, you have to be careful when you screw them back together to make sure you don't cross thread it. They twist together quite easily so you should never have to twist very hard to get it together. Not to say it will hurt it on the first time, or even the first few times, but it will take its toll if you repeatedly cross thread it.
I'm here..look busy!
