Theres no best, theres crappy, alright, and good hookah's. Any Syrian or Egyptian hand made hookah will smoke like a dream, but it depends on how you set it up. You should be making your decision according to your preference...appearance and size. I have a 36 inch KM and I love it. Hopefully soon I will be picking up either a new KM or a Syrian hookah. Heres my 36 in KM Chiller with a bohemian crystal vase. I paid about 170 from hookahcompany.com. Very expensive but I could not pass this one up, I love its appearance. Also if your thinking one hookah will make the flavor taste better than the other, well thats not true. If its set up right it will taste the same, the only difference that will occur will be the draw/clouds.
