Re: NEED A NEW HOOKAH
For an Egyptian Pipe : Khalil Mamoon (check pimpyourhookah.com), or Magdy Zidan (socialSmokehookah.com, Pimpyourhookah.com)
Syrian: I would prefer a JandR rig (JandRhookahs.com) over anything because the stem comes apart, and it is solid brass. Other than that, i would say go with a Social Smoke Syrian (socialsmokehookah.com)
Multiple Hose: I would say a Mya (Hookah-Shisha.com) . They are very durable and well made. They have stems that come apart. They may actually has brass cores (not exactly sure). You can add (or subtract) hose ports to add to the hose number.
For a 1 hose rig i would recomend a JandR Syrian first. Then a KM or MZ Egyptian hookah.
For multiple hose, only a Mya.
