The Nuvo Atom is a high-quality stem machined from aluminum. This stem is made in the USA and can be unscrewed into three pieces for easy cleaning. The stem is 15.5 inches in height and weighs almost 2 pounds. The Nuvo Atom does not include a tray, base or grommets.
Solid table-top sized hookah stem
The Nuvo Atom is the ideal table-top sized hookah stem. It measures 15.5 inches in length and weighs just shy of 2lbs. This gives it a very solid feel. This stem is machined from aluminum and has a great metal finish. I like the simple design of this stem. It's nothing radical, but it looks nice. It's available in 8 different vibrant colors. It can be divided into 3 pieces by unscrewing the downstem and the top part of the stem. This makes it incredibly easy to clean in a sink, which is something I sometimes have trouble with my other hookahs. The screw threading is thick and I have no concern of running into cross-threading issues with this stem. The downstem itself is very wide which gives it a wide open draw when smoking. Although I could use it with most of the bases I had when I got the Atom, I found it to have a fit that was too tight so I looked around online to get something else. I ended up ordering a Shika Medium Jumbo Base and that has the perfect fit with the Nuvo Atom. This stem does not include a tray. This was not a deal breaker for me since trays are easy to find, however, I do think every stem manufacturer should at least include a basic tray. I paired up my Nuvo Atom with a Phantom Mistic tray, and it looks great along with the Shika Jumbo base. The purge valve has 8 holes and the stem is easy to purge. One thing I did not like is the purge valve ball does rust. This unfortunately is a common issue with a lot of hookahs. The hose port is simply an opening in the stem and this works well as long as you have the proper grommet. I've been using this hookah for the last two months, and I enjoy using it. The simplicity of cleaning it in the sink, something I frequently do, and how well it performs, makes it one of my go-to hookahs.
