Re: For my first hookah...is this good?
hmm i think it might be a tad bit better to buy a good rig to start out with.
I think the hardest to get working would be an Egyptian, others would disagree (but i think this because they are not designed flawlessly, troubles could arise that the new smoker has no way to assess). I think a Mya Acrylic is perfect, or even a Glass Based Mya. They are quite durable, easy to disassemble/clean, portable, and have very wide downstems to keep your smoke thick.
if you do buy an Egyptian first, i think it's good to read up what people have to say on this forum to get a feel for what you gotta look for and do. They are traditionally functional of course.
