Re: For my first hookah...is this good?
MYA QT's are good IF you need to stay small, but your best bet is a larger hookah, bwt the 22"-28" range. Many Syrians and Egyptians are within this range, and long term (for the buck) will probably produce MUCH better results than the 13" one you are looking at. If you can swing it and really want a MYA, go with a taller one (but expect to pay for it unless getting an Acrylic).
As many here in your thread stated - shop around, read & research, check out the reviews. Unless you 100% need one tomorrow, take your time. You'll be happier in the long run.
